The Stop Motion Jazz

Right so I mentioned my project last time for my stop motion piece ‘The Everyday Situationist’ and I taught that I would show you a simple way for making your own stop motion. Keep in mind this was just a prototype and will be easy to replicate if you wanna try it.

Basically it involves a camera and slowly moving a piece in front of a camera .And its in these pictures that make a frame, which when placed together can make a short video piece. Depending on how realistic you want the video to be you can add more frames a second, which takes more time and will power to only change the object in the frame as slightly as possible between frames. For how I made my actual video you need a live feed from a DLSR camera and a program for stop motion (if you use dragon frame theirs a months free trial and it’s pretty decent) and from then on it pretty simple, until you get to the joys of editing the video piece together (with movie maker, or premiere)

The Everyday Situationist set

So the Situationist art movement was a movement unlike any other, and the movement that I got placed with for my final assessment for college. Basically what they wished to do was create a new everyday, where people wouldn’t be burdened with the mundanely of the nine to five. One of my favorite artist of this Constant Nuremberg ,who took this philosophy and created what he referred to as a New Babylon.

So it’s with this movement and man, that I pieced┬átogether my own reality in a short video titled “The everyday Situationist” which I will upload shortly. Underneath is the set that I made for the production, fell free to let me know what you think;

Pictures NOW IN 3D

So what the deal with the big 3D craze? yeah I don’t get it either, much alike everyone else who reads this blog with the exception of a blind “viewer” or two, I see things in 3D, like everyday, sometime if I walk into these 3D object it even feel like they are solid. So now we have accomplice the fact that seeing things in 3D is no real big feet, is it really worth wasting on extra euro (or dollar/pound) to watch a movie? And while we are asking that, why is the idea of a picture being in 3D that much impressive to your standard 2D pictures?

I will tell you why 3D is so big, because of artist like; Nagai Hideyuki. So what Nagai Hideyuki does that makes him so remarkable, is creates small imaginative figures, that’s drawn is such a realistic and skillful manner that’s makes them appear in 3D, when viewed from that right angle, very similar to that chalk artists Julian Beever, So if you like and wanna check out more of Hideyuki’s art, you can find it at; http://nagaihideyukiart.jimdo.com/gallery/
