Animating Orpheus (3)
This is going to be only a small report on how I’m progressing on my Orpheus film project.
Last week I animated 1289 frames in total which means, I have approx. 1 minute 30 seconds of footage. I also reached the turning point of the Underworld scene, and I hope to finish this part as soon as possible.
Here are some stills from the scenes I shot:
More to come soon!
Since I don’t want to reveal too much before the film is finished, I’d like to show you something else to jolly you along:
Cut-Out Animation with Terry Gilliam
If you need a quick introduction to cut-out animation, I highly recommend the following video:
Monty Python animator Terry Gilliam discusses his animation techniques on Bob Godfrey’s Do-It-Yourself Animation Show in 1974. I admire Gilliam’s films, and I love his animations. I made a lot of cut-out animations with my kids in previous animation classes, but I learned here something new, too.
Next weekend I’m going to teach an animation workshop to adults, and I think I’m going to use these technique again since it’s so simply and having this stunning results at the same time.
