The Bicycle Animation

This is a piece created to question whether it was possible to film animation in realtime. Part of my CSM 3rd year disseration project I was looking at proto animation (really early basic animation) in contemporary design. I've taken a lot of influence from other contemporary designers who are using these techniques to explore the way we look at animation and how its made. As stated on my channel I have interviewed animators such as Jim le Fevre and in my research referenced other people using this technique such as David Wilson and Tim Wheatley who did this before me. I developed this project based on what is being done in animation right now as well as a lot of primary research into the history of animation techniques.

up there

this is amazing! shot high above the streets of new york city, ‘Up There’ is a short film directed by malcolm murray and conceptulised by mother NY. the film reveals the dying craft of large-scale hand painted advertising and the untold story of the painters trying to keep it alive. capturing a trade that is equal parts artistic tradition and gruelling labour, the film presents a painting tradition pre-dating modern advertising. a craft that today finds itself dangling precariously on the brink of extinction.

sean stiegemeier got fed up with all the mediocre pictures of that volcano in iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so he figured he should go and do better, and boy, he certainly did. this is what he managed to record in around a day and a half.
