for our animation design workshop we were asked to create a character and story, what their world is like, their personality traits, their clothing et.c
I thought of an interesting concept.
the last man on earth, in a desperate attempt to stay sane, try’s to carry out his daily routine I.e. having a shower, going to the shops, going to work, stopping at red lights and stop signs; despite being totally alone.
I decided to make him look slightly vulnerable, with a baby face and ratty clothes to imply he is starting to run out of supplies as production of everything has been halted as he is the last on earth. I did this so that the viewer would feel empathy towards him.
I want the scene to be set in a desolate city with cars crashed into light posts and papers floating around, like the beginning of a zombie apocalypse movie only no zombies.
we were shown how to create a small stop motion video of objects moving, by drawing straight and curvy lines with small indications of how far along to move the objects along the line, we ended up with a finished product of the objects moving back and forth across the pages. We also experimented where we put the indications of where to move the objects and what shape the line could be, this greatly changed the speed and direction of the objects when the final video is created.
these are the videos of my experimentals.
