Artist Statement:


    This stop-action animation is an experiment with the fundamental techniques of stop-action. Instead of capturing real objects with a camera, a single scan into Adobe Photoshop 4.0 was separated so that all objects were on unique layers, where they could be moved, enhanced, and distorted independently. Using “high tech” to perform “low tech” animation has many advantages, including: a constant light and image source, motion blur filtering, and the ability to move objects together or independently at will. The score was captured and edited on Studio Vision Pro 3.5. Post-production tool: Adobe Premiere 4.0.
