Stop Frame Animation
You have to be a bit crazy to enjoy this art medium. Taking one or two shots per frame x 24 to equal a mere second of animation. I can get lost it in. With films such as Coraline and Box Trolls it is hard to miss Stop Frame Animation in modern day cinema. While a passion hobby of mine, I'd love to take on a more serious project.
Why Bouncing a ball
I am usually charged with modeling or animating the boring stuff first. While animating a bouncing ball could seem trivial it was one of the hardest things I've done with Stop Frame Animation. It is a fundamental exercise that is great for digital artists within a computer or with physical clay.
