watch/projects: sandopus Project. . .

The Sandopus Project from Andrew Hake.

warm up project for Senior Year at KCAI. my first return to backlit sand animation since Sophomore year. There are many things I would like to tidy up, as well as a few more layers I would like to add, but it was a fantastic project. Spent right around 24 hours for this one once I started animating.

This version is at 24 frames per second so there are a few oddities, some jittering and things, but I kind of like it, it maybe works a little better at 12fps though as most stop motion does, so I may upload that one as well.

This was also my first test with Dragon Stop Motion, a fantastic bit of software developed by Jamie and Dyami Caliri. Jamie is probably most well-known for his United Airlines paper cut-out stop motion commercials. This is without a doubt the best stop motion software out there, I highly recommend everyone check it out. I am planning on testing it as a pencil test system very soon as well.

The music is “Snow Tip Cap Mountain” by The Octopus Project, from their album, Hello Avalanche:


You may see more of this one in the future…
