Task 3 – Animation

Making an animation is our third task.  I have already made a 12 frame praxinoscope (zoetrope) in a seminar which as it is cyclic by nature continues the cycle theme.  I will be digitizing it with Photoshop and posting it in my outcome post.  I chose Photoshop as it seems the easiest and most straight forward way of doing it based on my skills.  I also need to make a short sequence using a camera phone or camera which explores the technique of stop-motion, while still using the word cycle as a theme.

I have had many ideas for an animation but have found it hard to think of something good that relates the word cycle.  Some of my usable ideas include, the life-cycle, recycle, seasons and time.  I think that the most plausible idea I have had is to combine a Lego man walking across the screen, which I will photo to create the walk while the sun (drawn) moves up and then down again as he walks across.  This would relate to the cycle of time.
