  • Emilys workshop and the Cats World International Animation Festival

    Friday, Dec 31, 2010 10:44PM / Members only

    A few days ago, I visited my friend Emily Wong. She is a very talented animator, specialized in stop motion. I went to see her workshop at the Artist village near Shek kip mei station. The building, that in the past was a factory and was supposed to be destroy, is now a great place where artists of all kinds have a space to create and show their art. Emily’s workshop is very small but very nice and cozy.

     

     

     

     

     

    Then, a few days after my visit to Emily’s workshop, I went to see her again at the

     Cats World International Animation Festival outside the Cultural Centre in Kowloon.

     Emily, among many other animators, was participating in an open air public workshop, where people can just come, experiment and have fun trying different kinds of animation.

      Emily, of course, was in charge of the stand with the stop motion animation. It was so cool because  people could make their own mini film in a few minutes and then  have a DVD copy of it to take home.

  • One Minute Film Festival Workshop

    Tuesday, Nov 16, 2010 2:22PM / Members only

    This Saturday I went to the One minute film festival workshop.

     

    I had a good time there, and I learned lots of new things about filmmaking.

      

    Director Bill Yip, who was teaching part of the workshop, was very nice and funny.

     

    Also Viola, who is a film editor, was very friendly and willing to help everybody.

     

    It was a very nice experience.

         

    There will be another workshop in December if you would like to attend

     

    Here I leave you some Pictures

  • My stopmotion project

    Tuesday, Nov 16, 2010 2:10PM / Members only

    Before I moved from Wuhan to Shenzhen, I was working in a stop motion project.

        I watched some amazing shorts made with this technique and I fell in love with this kind of animation. I was so excited with the idea of making a film like this, that I created a story, drew the story board and I started making the sets immediately. 

        I thought that later it would be easy to find somebody in that city that would like to join me in this project. But I was wrong.

        In Wuhan there isn’t a community of artists or people that really love animation or filmmaking, so I couldn’t find anybody to help me.

       Because stop motion require long time and a lot of patient, I knew that I couldn’t finish all by myself, so I decided to pack all set and materials in boxes and postpone this project for the future when I would move to another city and I could find people that like this kind of animation.

     

    Anyway here are some pictures of the set and the puppet I was sculpting  

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    These were suppose to be the metallic armature of the puppets

     

     

    It looks scary! I sculpted the head and hands with Super sculpy. Then I was suppose to bake them and when they would be hard as stones make a mold with a special kind of  white hard silicon. When that would be ready I would use the mold to fill it with a soft skin color silicone that looks just like human skin. The problem was that when I put the parts in the oven I forgot to turn off the grill and I burned all the pieces. It was horrible. I will try again next time.

    Welcome to our <a href="http://www.louisvuitton-outletsonline.com/"><b>Louis Vuitton Outlet</b></a> some slightly delayed Edition of Tuesdays with Twiggers! Cruise period of your time is officially upon us! even although in circumstance you are like me you are merely pondering of turkey dinner and attempting to carry out up your holiday shopping <a href="http://www.louisvuitton-outletsonline.com/"><b>Louis Vuitton Outlet Online</b></a>.
    <a href="http://www.louisvuitton-outletsonline.com/"><b>Louis Vuitton Factory</b></a> However, the idea of getting away on the cruise to some faraway island and leaving the husband to carry out his individual holiday shopping on <a href="http://www.louisvuitton-outletsonline.com/"><b>Louis Vuitton Sale</b></a>, decorate the tree, hang the decorations, and cook the xmas dinner (all while toting a fabulous new <a href="http://www.louisvuitton-outletsonline.com/"><b>Louis Vuitton bags</b></a>) somehow appeals to me!

    Thanks Claudia! Your designs are most innovative, and aesthetically, have a bio-mimicry type construct to them - very natural and relaxing, visually appealing but most of all... innovative.
