Stop motion – S is for sugar

This is my first stop-motion using the alphabet and for this particular letter I chose the letter S and the meaning for this is sugar. To create this stop motion I used the software After Effects. Firstly, I got all the images that I wanted to use and transferred them into after effects and adjusted all the settings so that they were all correct. After all the settings were done, I then done the positioning for the text so that one would come across the top of the screen saying ‘S is for…’ and then the other would drop down saying ‘ugar’ but it would eventually say ‘Sugar’ when it is next to the ‘S’.

Pingu is a British-Swiss stop-motion clay animated children’s television series. Pingu was created by Otmar Gutmann and produced from 1986 to 2000 by Trickfilmstudio. It was then produced again in 2003 to 2006 by the same people at Trickfilmstudio in Switzerland. In 2001 HiT Entertainment bought the United Kingdom rights to the series and produced another 52 episodes.  Pingu was originally voiced by an Italian man called Carlo Bonomi who invented that language Penguinese. Penguinese is a language that is used in the show Pingu and it is the noises that all the characters make during the shows.

Wallace and Gromit is a British clay animation comedy series created by Nick Park of Aardman Animations. Wallace was originally voiced by Peter Sallis but in 2011 that role was passed onto Ben Whitehead. Wallace and Gromit movies are shot using stop-motion animation, and after a storyboard is created along with the set and plasticine model construction, it is then created one frame at a time, moving the model ever so slightly each time a frame is shot.

The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit took 15 months to make just showing how long it could take to use stop-motion animation.

Animation – Warburton’s StoryBoard


This is the start of my Warburton’s animation project. I’ve started of with a simple storyboard using pencil and then went over that with a fine liner just to make the drawings a bit easier for me to see when I transfer the storyboard onto PhotoShop. I chose to do Tom and Jerry because it is a show that I am very familiar with and I thought that it would be something that I would enjoy when creating an animation about.
