This week we learnt more about illustrator and I then made a character to go along with my videos. We learnt how to use the pen tool, this then helps us create draw and type of illustration in a more freehand style.
This week I did a practice run on stop motion and also developed my overall idea for this product.
After researching some designers that gave me inspiration for how I could do my project, tried to use some of the skills learnt and made my own short stop motion video.
I did so by using the app ‘stop-motion studio’ this allowed me to make a very quick stop motion video, it was also very simple to use. Once I had made the film I uploaded it to the sight Vimeo which allowed meant that I could use it as the platform to post my final product. This practice run allowed me to get an idea of how I can create my final product and also a place for me to post it. Continue reading “Unit 10: Story Board (Celia)”

Today we each had to tell the class what we plan to do for our unit 10 project, I explained that I wanted to create a stop motion using paper. The topic has not really been decided yet but I may use the topic on how to bake a cake. When I said this many didn’t understand why I would use paper, which then lead me to show them a video of stop motion using paper. Some got the idea after this, which lead them to give me some feedback.
The more useful ones were what different topics I could do, such as how to tie a shoe laces. Most was to not do it in paper, however I think doing it in paper will mean it can be more colourful and so will keep children watching it. Another bit of feedback was for a real cake to pop up at the end, giving it sense of fun.
This week we had to research four different designers that have influenced my own designs. The main designers I focused on, where all based around the use of stop motion. This lead me to look at creates like Tim Burton, Aardman along with more independent designers. Continue reading “Unit 10: Influences (Celia)”
