Max Winstone is an american animator who's work has a very distinct style i became aware of his work years ago with his short film 'I Live in the Woods!' , a psychedelic romp of a purple haired man through the country and heavens. His style of work is very freeing and seems to be largely based on the hose pipe style I am attempting in my film. I really enjoy the fast phase, no holds barred attitude to animating. I also enjoy his low tech solutions for vfx in camera, such as paper for explosions and overlaying film. The work is extremely elegant, with only the minimum to get across poses and shapes. His puppet are slick and glorious!
It is also great to look at his movement. It's useful to look at how few frames are necessary to allow the puppet to read but also to create a bold popping movement. The film is a good reference for action analysis as the movement and style of animation has a lot o similarities with this Film.
This is a space for development work of my grad film BORIS-NORIS. A slap stick stop-motion film about NOT sharing.
