Ad Break from Sam Walsh on Vimeo.
Finally here is our student film ' Ad break'. I worked on this film with Sarah Little, Tom Clark and Sam Walsh. This was a group project for our second year at University West of England Sam was the director of ' Ad Break' and was also lead animator on the Ed Plus commercial. Sam animated the first three shots in the 'ED Plus ' commercial, the last shot on the 'Commio's' commercial ( sarah did the layout), and 6 shots on the 'Constapeaze' Ad. I worked with Tom on the sound for 'Constapeaze' We used the sound studio at UWE and i edited the sound clips I also worked on the back grounds for Ed Plus and also did some concept art for 'Commio's' I came up with the final design of the cereal box All in all, I tried to work with every one and there needs By arrange meetings to discuss our progress and development of ideas. There was 1 scene that was cut that i animated using Adobe after affects and live action I wasnt to happy with the outcome of that but it was a group decision to cut the scene from the film. The characters did go off a model a bit when different animators worked with the same character and the sound design, on 'Commio's' was done by another team member it wasn't grate apart from that I think it turned out very well considering it was our first group film.

This is the puppet we ended up using, although i didnt make it, it has all the relevant armatures inside it to make it move. While working with Becky as a team i learnt a lot about communication and hard work i feel working on stop motion as a team is more productive because if something doesn't work you can develop the solution to fix the problem to gather .
the puppet and mouths
Stop Motion Lipsync from Becky Farr on Vimeo.
This is was an assignment from first year module. We wear given some sounds in stop motion and had to animate the mouth and the movements.
Becky and I sat down and drew out all the mouth shapes we needed to go along with the sound, we then made them all out of sculpy.
