L3 Games Design: Pixelating Myself

Firstly, I used PhotoBooth to capture and image of myself, and then transferred the image onto PhotoShop. Next, I adjusted the image using the crop tool to make sure it was just my face. Once that was done I then played around with the image size and the indexed colour just to get used to it and to see what I could design with it.

Alphabet Stop-Motion

This is my alphabet stop-motion. My letter that I had for this project was the letter J and for the stop-motion I decided to use jelly-beans for the meaning of the letter J. Firstly, I set up the camera in a position so that it was a good height to see the stop-motion, then, I started to take each photo and moving the jelly beans slowly to create the letter J until it was complete. Secondly, I transferred all 38 photos onto my computer, and then edited them all to create the stop-motion. Once that was all completed I then added some text, which would say ‘J is for…’ and ‘elly-bean’ just to it is easier to understand what the stop-motion is about. When adding the sound, I had to think about what would go well with the stop-motion, I didn’t want something that would be too powerful because then the focus would be taken off the actual stop-motion itself. For me, the background music goes really well with the stop-motion because it flows with the video

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.

For this take I had to choose 6 different letters within a certain front, mine is Cooper Black. After I created the letter I then used the free transformation tool to adjust the size and angle of the letter so that you were unable to tell what letters it could be. For this task I had to do 6 letters it in a normal black and white and then another 6 in colour with a background colour.
