I try to constantly keep doing small challenges and meeting and working with other talented artists on various collaborative pieces, here are a few that I have done over the last few months and very proud to be able to say I was part of the group who made these. Check them out they include Motion Corpse, Chainamation, The Unsatisfying Challenge, Bingomation, and 9 squares.
I want to do a collaboration project so I worked with 33 other School of Motion Alumni to create this. I asked them to choose a word or image to fill in the sentence and this is what we came up with. Thanks to my friend Ewa Niedbala who did all the illustrations for the title slides which I animated and put the full video together.
Motion Corpse is a project started by one of my fellow animation bootcamp alumni - Nol Honig. This project you design a final frame - only with the limit of being a 5 color - color palette, and then receive a first frame and have to create 5 seconds of animation to transition between the two. Then with 5 people you get the above. :)
9 Squares is this challenge that assigns a square to 9 different animators and with 4 colors and they do the rest. I was lucky enough to be a part of the one done with a bunch of school of motion alumni... Check it out below.
Bingomation is where animators get to pick numbers and animate them... I choose 30 for dirty 30!
