Happy Black Friday! This is from last night.
I'm working on a stop motion project. You can see by the picture on the left sort of what it's like. I've built a wireframe skeleton, and I'm going to router the base so I can move threaded rods around and animate it. The threaded rods will allow the parts to move up and down. It'll be a pain and a half to animate but it should be worth the trouble.
That's going with this whole concept of growth and struggle. I'm going to be working with a dancer, who will be wearing a dress soaked in paint that will splatter everywhere as a symbol of progress and making a mark. As the short progresses, animated plants will start to surround the dancer. Eventually she'll grow into a topiary, a symbol of constant growth and emotional stability.
This is a big project. It'll take a while to do but I have a potential team to help me.
Oh, and here's the marble I'm working on.
And these are the tools I'm using! Sort of. Not exactly the same, but close. The hammer's the same-ish.
