This project’s mixed media art was based on packaging designs for mugs. I used my research from Liverpool to help
learnt many techniques, and looked at many different examples of stop motion, such as Aardman Animation. Our animation was inspired by the popular cartoon, Peanuts and we produced it on an application called Stop Motion on an iPad. To keep the material stable we used blu tack and a tripod. Me and Corey tried to achieve a simple yet really enjoyable animation. I think we achieved this extremely well as we came up with many ideas on how to perceive it that way. There was keeping the characters in one frame and the delicate thus far effective names of the characters. Additionally, there was the simple background cutout. What I really liked about our animation was how humorous the plot was. What I didn’t like was that the background didn’t take up the frame of the animation. Some improvements would be adding more scenes and showing the names of the characters. Overall, the animation was a success.
