This week we have had another go at 2D animation, this time we had to make a short clip of a ball bouncing up and down. We had to make sure we captured the 'bouncing' motion of the ball accurately so that the object actually looked like it was making impact with the 'floor'... i got pretty stressed doing this one, the ball keeps changing shape throughout the clip.. ah well i tried my best!!

On monday we all went to a screening of a few bafta winning animations and they were amaaazing!! There was one stop-motion film called Madame Tutli Putli which scared the living daylights out of me but it was incredibly animated and the character designs and layouts were really unusual.
We had our first history and theory of animation lecture on tuesday, it was really interesting to see all of the thoughts and ideas behind different animators' work and it was inspiring to see how far animation has evolved. We watched a few short animated films, ranging from the classic Disney 'Skeleton Dance' from 1929 and the early Felix the Cat films to a more recent and thought provoking short film by a student where she expressed her emotions about her childhood abuse. So we have been given alot of ideas and theories to think about over the next week! toodle oo for now x

I must admit I am quite scared of starting the course, because I haven't really had much experience in Animation. I originally applied for Illustration here in Falmouth University, but I was instead offered a place on the Digital Animation course, and I am so glad I said yes because the course looks absolutely fantastic!! I have always been fascinated by the processes and techniques used by Animators, but I admit I don't partically get along well with computors.. could be tricky, but once I get to grips with all of the technology then hopefully I will be able to create some interesting work.. fingers crossed!
