For my BFA1 second semester film, I experimented in every animation technique I had time for, in the form of caterpillars.

In order, the techniques are:
:bulletgreen: stitching on paper,
:bulletgreen: phenakistoscope,
:bulletgreen: magnetic stop motion puppets,
:bulletgreen: drawn animation with pointillism,
:bulletgreen: stop motion leaf cutting,
:bulletgreen: black paper cutting on top of acrylic paintings,
:bulletgreen: yarn marionette,
:bulletgreen: strata cut,
:bulletgreen: caterpillar stitch,
:bulletgreen: colored pencil on paper collage background,
:bulletgreen: straw wrapper colored with marker,
:bulletgreen: yarn painting,
:bulletgreen: stop motion sour worms,
:bulletgreen: paper cut-out animation,
:bulletgreen: lino-cut printing,
:bulletgreen: stop motion torn paper,
:bulletgreen: beaded bracelet,
:bulletgreen: digitized drawn animation,
:bulletgreen: drawn animation in crayon,
:bulletgreen: stop motion puppets,
:bulletgreen: EVERYTHING,
:bulletgreen: and then stitching on paper again.

Why caterpillars? Because they have a very unifying, distinct movement as well as a shape that is recognizable at any stage of complexity. And because I think they're cute. :aww:

Better quality on YouTube: [link]

The stop motion puppets also function as fridge magnets-->:meow:

How do you get "graded" in art school?

And how long did this take to make? :O

Each class will give you a pass, high pass, low pass, or fail.
It took the whole semester~ ^^;

Could be different in other schools though~

Yeah, animating is a time-suck.  The film I'm working on right now is going to have taken two years!

it's very difficult for me to choose which sequence of the animation i liked the most...next project...dragonflies...fire breathing dragonflies...maybe as a dragonfly dream sequence...
what do dragonflies dream about anyway? apart from avoiding being eaten

No, seriously, a vast amount of experimentation with an unlikely capacity of keeping our attention. Mr. McLaren smiles somewhere. ;)
