Since the next project on which I will work is stop animation, I decided to explore the "world" of stop-animation, and share with you the most important information. First of all, I mentioned that on this project inspired me numerous cartoons created by stop animation, and one of them is a winner of Academy Award for animated short film "Harvie Krumpet" by Adam Elliot. Stop animation can be described as one of the oldest, but also the funniest animator techniques. So, what stop animation allows is the creation of virtual movement of things that are fixed in reality. This effect is achieved so that the camera captures frame by frame of the object which only moved slightly, for each subsequent frame. It is enough only ten frames per second or 24 frames (for movies) to your and my eye deceived, and to inanimate and stationary object looked lively and movable.
The imperfection of human eye has enabled the creation of perfect creative industry within the world of animation, stop animation. I remember as a child at the edges of sheets of notebook, I drew flowers in different positions, and then fast scrolling notebooks seemed to be moving flowers.There are different variations of stop-motion animation, and some of them are the "go-motion" and "pixilation". More about these techniques can be found on various websites, and I'll tell you just that the techniques "go motion" visible inside the film "Dragonslayer" and "Back of Jedi", "a technique" pixilation "can be seen in the video "Sledgehammer ". So if I interested you in this, you can explore and familiarize with these techniques. With the advent of computer animation, stop animation is increasingly less represented, however, lot of people remained faithful to it. For example, a studio which is still dealing with stop animation Aardman is known for animated film "Chicken Run". If this article has inspired you, and if you want to try out your skills within field of stop - animation, I recommend you MonkeyJam tool designed for creating stop animation. Second, let's call it "home" mode for beginners is achievable with the help of digital camera. Take a stationary object, take a picture, then move it a little and take another picture and so on.
Also, I must not leave out my idol Tim Burton. If you want to learn more about stop animation, read works of Tom Burton and surely you will collect a lot of new, high quality information. See animated films "James and the Giant Peach" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas ", of Tim Burton and you will be delighted as I am. He teaches you in a fantasy world, and unique creativity that you can not get enough of, and that will certainly inspire you and motivate also. It can be concluded that the stop animation is simply interesting, fun and good to turn disappeared. Although, today is not used as much as before, but its immortality is not in question. Always was, and always will be those who will stop animation inspired more than anything.
