Kirsten Lepore is another animator that uses tubular limbs to create a loose, soft often comical sense of movement in her work. This perhaps why she was selected to create the stop-motion special for 'Adventure Time'. Adventure Time as a series is largely based on a fast paced, rapid movement style that uses the characteristic of rubber hose style. As you can see in the character sheet below there are rile sin the world with famously 'no rules'. Importantly is creating the emphasis for movement such as a bent limb, but remaining fluid, how to create a sense of power with out sharp corners. I used some of these principles to develop movement in my own puppets as well as that of very traditional 'cartoony' styled animation such as Loony toons and the work of tex avery. From a model making point of view
Another aspect I looked at on this project was the creation of the set, that can be seen in the making of video below.
This is a space for development work of my grad film BORIS-NORIS. A slap stick stop-motion film about NOT sharing.
