Stop Motion Animation Project: Preparations

We did some stop motion animation for my contemporary art class. I don’t know if the video will be uploaded but probably not. (Check out the final video below)

The video my team made was about another team mate’s vision she achieved during her traditional Lakota naming ceremony in which she saw herself first seated in a sweat lodge. Then she floated up to the top of the trees where she saw a bear roaring and waving its long claws. A flock of birds flew by, one of which flew towards her in which she pulled it into her chest capturing its essence. Then she discovered her Lakota name, translated to “Bear Heart Spirit Woman.”

I was in charge of making drawings of her which they scanned in and shrunk to a small size.

We used a simple set up of a camera, tripod, two lights and the application Single Framer.


Here’s the final product:
