“Frame-By-Frame Animation”

Here's a demo reel from one of the courses I designed and taught at George Washington University. Make sure the sound's on.

Custom "Frame-By-Frame Animation" Overview:

Using “frame” as a metaphor for the relationship between sequence and simultaneity, Frame-By-Frame Animation delivers insight into the ongoing evolution of animated content as well as hands-on experience exploring time-based projects based on physical, digital & web media.

Course Description I Wrote For This Class:

“Focusing on the animation, stop-motion and time-lapse work of Segundo de Chomón, Georges Méliès, Walt Disney, Ray Harryhausen, Jan Švankmajer, Terry Gilliam, James Cameron and PES, among others, I utilize still photos, text, clay, found objects, cut-out drawings and paint to introduce students to the principles and workflows for physical and digital frame-by-frame animation, including detailed storyboarding; audio editing and synchronization; lighting and much more.

The course assumes no prior animation, software, video, audio, lighting or photography experience.”
