6 Great Stop Motion Films



If there's one filmmaking technique that takes immense skill, patience, and artistic flare, it's stop motion or, the art of making puppets move. Typically, stop motion uses puppets made out of synthetic materials and are moved by animators who work long hours just to get a few seconds of the finished film shot. Labour intensive with little room for error, stop motion films are just about always eye-catching. Below are six of the best stop motion movies ever made.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

It should be no surprise that Tim Burton tops this list since his movie The Nightmare Before Christmas helped bring full-length stop motion movies into the mainstream. Not only was the movie extremely well done, it became a massive marketing success that's still popular to this day. Based on a Christmas poem Mr. Burton wrote, adapted to the screen by Michael McDowell and directed by Henry Selick, The Nightmare Before Christmas, features Jack Skellington, the king of the Halloweentown, who yearns for something more than just scaring people every Halloween. He desires to branch out and, in his ambitious mood, steals Father Christmas. The story develops in wonderful stop-motion movie magic to tell the story of being happy with who you and where you're put in life.

Corpse Bride

Mr. Burton's next offering, Corpse Bride, is a love story about Victor who is to be married against his will to Victoria, a well to do lady of the village. When the wedding rehearsal goes wrong, Victor heads off into the woods and practices his marriage vows, he doesn't realize his words transcend the land of living... and the dead. It is here he accidentally marries Corpse Bride. Now married to the Corpse Bride, Victor has to make a choice between his bride in the land of the living, or the land of the dead.

James and the Giant Peach

The heart warming story of a little boy, James, whose parents are tragically killed by a rhinoceros and is sent to live with his two mean aunties. But his life takes a turn for the magical when he saves a spider. Now in posession of magical crocodile tongues, a massive peach plant begins to grow. When James ventures inside he discovers a company of new friends, including the spider he saved and a very wise grasshopper who will help him get to New York. Stunning visuals and brought to you by the same Burton/Selick team, this movie is a delight to watch and will make you want to read the book to relive childhood memories!

Mary & Max

A funny and heart warming movie about two pen pals, Mary, an eight year old girl living in Australia, and Max, a forty-four year old man living in New York.

How to Turn a Youtube Video into an Animated GIF



Before you start creating your very own animated GIFs, consider your options. Do you want full control over how your GIF looks or would you rather skip multiple steps and get straight to having your GIF created.



There are two methods to creating GIFs, one is downloading a video file, or using an existing file and then putting it into a program and creating it that way, the other way is to use online GIF creating websites which will download the video and create the GIF for you. If you're look for speed, the latter would be the best route.

Disney's Have a Laugh Volume 4 DVD Review

Have a Laugh Volume 4 DVDThe animation lover in me is thrilled that Disney is re-releasing their classic cartoons on home video. But that same animation lover is outraged at the appalling hatchet job the Mouse House has done with these old shorts in the Have a Laugh series.

Like the previous collection, Have a Laugh Volume 3, Disney takes some of their great old cartoons and bowdlerizes them for a modern audience. Between the vile "edited versions" and the pathetic voice-over in the Blam! feature, anyone with any taste will want to take a baseball bat to the creative executive who approved this blasphemy.

Have a Laugh Volume 4 DVD Features 'How to Swim,' 'Trailer Horn,' & 'Mickey Down Under'

The good news in this set is that these cartoons are truly for the ages. Viewers from 5 to 95 will roll on the floor laughing at Mickey and Pluto's misadventures with a boomerang with a mind of its own and an outraged ostrich in 'Mickey Down Under.' Goofy tries to surf while Donald Duck gets his grass skirt too close to a flame in 'Hawaiian Holiday', Disney's attempt to cash in on the Hawaiian craze of the 1930's.

Short-tempered Donald Duck feuds with mischievous chipmunks Chip and Dale in 'Trailer Horn' and Pluto battles a stubborn present in the sweet and funny 'Pluto's Surprise Package.' Last - but certainly not least - Goofy goes poolside in the brilliant 'How to Swim.'

Sure, these cartoons are 70 - 80 years old but when you're laughing this hard, who cares?

Have a Laugh Volume 4 DVD Extras

Here's where things go hideously awry. The " Re-Micks" feature re-edits snippets of vintage black-and-white cartoons to make a music video for the Jonas Bros' "Play My Music." It's a blatant attempt to pander to the pre-teen set, and won't get much repeat play outside that demographic.

Then there's the Blam! feature, in which an over-caffeinated voice-over type jabbers about the biggest pratfalls in several shorts while showing them in slow-motion. I have four words for this guy: shut the **** up!

In a classic case of "What the hell were they thinking?" Disney executives approved severely cropping large chunks from these old cartoons and offering them as "short versions." Even worse, these hack jobs are presented in 5.1 audio as opposed to the 2.1 audio the originals get.

Words cannot convey the sheer stupidity behind this decision, but I'll try anyway. First off, in hacking up these classic shorts you're fixing something that definitely isn't broken. These cartoons have established a certain rhythm in the way they develop the joke and the storyline for maximum payoff. Hacking them up completely decimates that classic pacing that helps make them so great.

Here's another hint: kids don't give a flying-you-know-what about the difference between 2.1 and 5.1 audio. Adults do. Adults also care about seeing these classic shorts in the way in which they were originally intended, and aren't going to like seeing these heavily truncated versions. Is that clear enough for you, Disney, or am I going to have to do an interpretive dance . . . with chainsaws?

Have a Laugh Volume 4: Disney Can't Leave Well Enough Alone

The saddest part of these collections is that the Mouse House clearly believes that their old cartoons can't stand on their own merits. The truth is, just like Snow White or Buster Keaton films, these animated shorts have an appeal that transcends generations. If the Mouse House understood this, and didn't butcher these cartoons in the name of making them accessible to modern kids (who hate being patronized like this), the Have a Laugh series would be more successful.

As it is, Have a Laugh Volume 4 gets a 3/5.

How To Make An Animation Movie With iKITMovie





Average:

Your rating: None

When animation is used for films or movies, each frame is produced on an individual basis. Frames can be produced using computers or photographs of images that are either drawn or painted. Frames can also be generated by altering a model unit in small ways and using a special camera to take pictures of the results.

Though the work of producing animated movies and cartoons can be intense and laborious, computer animation can make the process much faster. Computer technology is steadily improving, and professionals are able to create life-like characters using computers and special animation software. However, skilled animators are still necessary for producing quality animations. After all, computers are not yet capable of making artistic choices and bringing real passion to simple images.

To create a stop motion animation, you need a webcam or a basic digital camera (preferably mounted on a tripod for stability) and any video editing software (like Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple iMovie, etc)

Instructions

Step1 : Open your iKITMovie program (making sure your webcam is connected and working)

Step2 : Choose your preferred resolution for capturing your images. Its best to use 640x480 pixels if your camera can handle it!

Step3 : Lighting is essential - so make sure your desklamp or even better desklamps are on and directed downward on your object that you want to animate.

Step4 : Make sure you turn off your auto White balance feature on your camera and ensure that you focus either manually or digitally (depending on the camera you have). Now start taking snaps moving the object bit by bit for each frame and enjoy.

Bonus Tip: If you like your characters to jump in the stop-motion animation video, attach them to a thin wire and lift the wire a few centimeters in each

Legal :: Forensic Animation- Forensic Computer Animation



Forensic Animation- Forensic Computer Animation

Forensic animation is a category of 3D animation that is used for re-creating crime scenes, criminal events, accidents or disasters that have caused death. There is a wide range of uses for forensic computer animation, as forensic scientists work with investigators to gather all the relevant facts of a case and build a provable explanation of what happened and who might be at fault. There are many forensic events that can be useful to re-create in 3D, such as automobile or vehicular accidents, building, bridge or crane collapse, deadly assaults with weapons or the failure of a mechanical device that has caused a crash, explosion or fire.

To begin a forensic animation, facts must be compiled from as many sources as possible both investigative and scientific. Eyewitness accounts, photographs of the scene, statements from emergency responders and police detectives must be combined with reports from experts in relevant fields, such as weapons experts, engineers, scientists, forensic experts, etc. By combining all of the information from these sources it is possible to do a crime scene recreation or accident scene reconstruction.

Animators take these documents and use them to build accurate photorealistic 3D models of all the necessary objects in a scene. Then the items are placed accurately within a 3D environment. Once the proper textures, surfaces and colors are added, decisions must be made regarding lighting and camera placement. In many cases, facts that have been turned into a realistic and accurate 3D forensic animation can help determine culpability. The advantage of building a 3D forensic animation of scenes and objects is that the camera can then move around the scene freely to show relevant information. This can be very helpful as demonstrative evidence in the courtroom as it can help jurors to more clearly understand the facts of the case.

Forensic animation is only as acc
