Animations – and another day without the internet!

Wed, 3 Nov 2010

Another day with no broadband connection! Curse you BT Broadband! 

I've been trying to use my time productively though and have done some work on a new model as well as creating some animations of existing models. The animations are all stop motion. Basically, I stick the model down to a backing sheet so that it doesn't move, mount the camera on a tripod then take eight pictures, moving the handle round 45 degrees between frames. 

I drop the pictures into photoshop and animate them using these handy instructions 🙂

The internet is back on so after posting this I'm going to do some work on the website. What did we do before the internet!? I've been disconnected all day and now I have so many things I need to look up!

    Boy, are you right there,

    Boy, are you right there, Rob. I use Google so much for so many vital things every single day that not having it for some reason would be horrible! I feel the need for access to information at my fingertips at home now in the same way I need food. It isn't the same need but it sure feels that way now.


    Lovely animation. These mechanisms are going to help me understand automat, I just know it!


    Thank you.
