In this workshop we were using stop frame photography to create an animated short. using toys that were laying around we used a program called i can animate to help us track our progress as we moved our toys around to give a sense of movement.
This is mine and Simons animation
When we were creating this animation we learnt of the restrictions the toys had, such as arm and leg movement, it was hard to try and create a fluid walking motion as the legs didn't move the way you wanted, plus trying to put the toys in a certain positioned left them unstable and meant they fell over.
Even though we had problems i really did enjoy stop motion, and i think i may look into it further and try and develop my skills.
