My experiment with clay continues. VICTUAL 2 is now on Vimeo.
My short experiment titled VICTUAL 1 is now online. I did the animation one evening during the week and completed the audio tracks this weekend.
Sven Bonnichsen’s recent “mutate” project inspired me to try something quick and improvisational. I haven’t worked with clay before, but wanted to try something simple and organic with that medium.
I built a “golden section” cage to put a clay character within. The set also has a hole in the floor to let the stick appear and interact with the character. I put the set and cage in place then spent 3 hours animating.
After animating, I watched the footage to see what ideas it evoked. Color grading was done in After Effects with final editing in Sony Vegas. After a round of audio work (freesound.org), the project was complete.
