For our Animation task, we have been given the following tasks to complete by the 10th of November:
1) Starting from the very basics of film production technology you are invited to explore the firstprinciples of motion picture creation and use drawing to generate a simple animated sequence.During the seminar you should initially generate a 12 frame hand-drawn sequence using thePraxinoscope (SpinnerScope) provided, and digitize it to create either an animated gif (using gifmaker for example) or a video sequence in Adobe Premiere. The theme CYCLE continues by default since the praxiniscope is cyclic by nature.
2) Create a short experimental sequence using a still camera, smartphone, or video camera which explores the technique of ‘stop-motion’ animation and/ or pixilation (animation of humans). Again use the word CYCLE as a theme to develop your ideas
