Pixel Critters (Cutout Animation)

My first project of Collaborative Studio Practice was a cutout animation named ‘Pixel Critters’. I worked with Simon and Laura, so our team was called SLI! Each of us created a character. I did the caterpillar, Simon did the cockroach and Laura did the mouse. Then we animated together. I didn’t really know how to manipulate the frame-by-frame recording devices, I guess without Simon and Laura’s help I can’t finish my part. For this project we had to use straight-ahead and direct under-the-camera animation methods which meant we were not allowed for the editing and progressive refinement of a movement. I was very pleased to learn this kind of traditional animation techniques.

    Aw. You are too kind, Isis. Your character’s motion was really great, and we couldn’t have done it without you. The computer program was just silly button-pushing. I had a good time working with you! Thanks for all your hard work.
