In our 3rd year of animation we get to learn stop motion animation. The video above is the first test we did in class. We needed to have the cars nearly collide on frame 13 and then crash on frame 35. We also needed to have one car do two loops while the other car did one loop. It was actually really hard to do. =(

Leica reel for my action analysis project. Only 5 seconds of this 30 second story will be animated. My story is about a little boy who needs to go to the washroom after drinking many bottles of milk. He finds out that the toilet seat is way too high for him. He decides to use toilet paper to boost him up. The toilet paper falls onto its side and the little boy looses his balance. The little boy ends up flying face first into the large toilet.

A cool thing I noticed, while refrencing off this photo, is that the street lights hang from these cables that connect to the buildings. cool stuff.

I took this animation course over the summer that teaches us how to sync animation to music. The music I chose to sync my animation to comes from the intro of Pixar's Monsters Inc. I didn't have time to finish the project but here's what I got. I don't think I'll ever finish it because I've just gotten too frustrated with this piece. =(
If you didn't understand the animation...I don't blame you lol
It starts off with a magician pulling random stuff out of his hat. He eventually finds out there is a slimey monster in his magical hat. When the monster comes out of the hat, the magician uses the bouncing balls to hit the monster. Having little effect on the monster, the magician decides to use his wand to turn the monster into a rabbit.I don't know how I came up with such a silly scenario..it just kinda developed while I was animating.
The first half is near complete. The second half still needs a lot more inbetweens. The monster still needed to be animated. The slime the magician was looking at still needed to be animated.

I've been experimenting with some of the different effects in photoshop. I really like how the clouds turned out...BUT...I'm not a fan of the ground.

Final animation project for 2nd year. We had to sync dialogue to a character with a beak. I got this dialogue from a sketch in SNL.
I had to cut to the face for the last bit cause of deadline issues. If I were to do full body animation for the entire sequence, I would DIE.
I'm not sure I can do this for a living. Its toooooo hard.

Line taken from an old movie called "Little Monsters". Enjoyed working on the project. My fellow classmates thought I'd would crumble under the pressure of doing a 15 second animation.
192 frames.....but I'm almost positive it could have been done in less.

This line was taken from Talladega Nights. Took me a lonnnng time. I wished I spent more time working out the character design before animating. I ran into so many problems with the design of the character. ANASLKLSKDJL!!!!!!! But I learned a valuable lesson...and that is to never start animating unless your 200% sure you like the design of your character. Hopefully my next project will be more successful then this one. =(
