These are the final scenes for my animation.
The idea will be to move each across the lightbox, bringing the next sheet in so that it looks continuous.

work space.

Me and hayley have kind of taken over the front room these last two week. Im currently settled by the window so i can use the light to see my layers. Trying to line it up to that the sequence looks like it flowing downwards.


There was a really nice shadow cast by the cellophane but i couldnt capture it. This is how im going to show the children.

Things i forgot!

These are some tests i did to try and discover the atmosphere i want to create. I dont want the scenery to be too realistic, i dont want anything to be too realistic. These were just done with masking tape and water-colours.

I tried the water colour on the lightbox...

I dont think this looks particularly effective. Its nice in places but its quite time consuming and i dont have the time any more, I feel that layer paper creates more depth to the image and is simple but effective!



Stills from tests.


This what i was imagining for the beginning, after trying it i can see that its not the effect i had in mind!
