Term 2 – Assignment 2 | 005 Ideas III

After making Block 3 in class today i decided that i quite like how the stop motion style came together.

This got me looking more into the different types of animation

Cutout animation is a technique for producing animations using flat characters, props and backgrounds cut from materials such as paper, card, stiff fabric or even photographs. The world’s earliest known animated feature films were cutout animations (made in Argentina by Quirino Cristiani); as is the world’s earliest surviving animated feature.

Today, cutout-style animation is frequently produced using computers, with scanned images or vector graphics taking the place of physically cut materials. South Park is a notable example of this transition since its first episode was made with paper cutouts before switching to computer animation.

Other notable examples include Angela Anaconda, and – more recently – Charlie and Lola. One of the most famous animators still using traditional cutout animation today is Yuriy Norshteyn.

Examples:

i love this grundgy absract style of this style of animation, very Tim Burton esque

This is the type of art style i am after, hand drawn with mis matched lines and shapes
