The Museum animations is a short story about an apple and an orange, with a participation of an unexpected Titan. I hope you enjoy it.
Note: It is a thriller.
I have fun with this project, it was a therapy for me during this end of this ‘quarantine’ term.
My goal was to use stop motion techniques in a way that I do not rely on people to get my work done. But I end up mixing photos with video, which for me had a very interesting outcome.
I was looking for something fun but also with some suspense and mystery. I planned to eat the apple anyways, but it was just an idea, I realize my self creating the story while shooting. That was cool because I had my storyboard but while working I start adding things. So I can say that the story was created with the flow but started with the storyboard. I gather all my previous artwork to create my scenario and the two only fruits that I had left in my refrigerator.
I had two production days because I needed an extra shot, and it ended up being a smart choice, I got a cool idea which was the end. I had another day to put them together and another day to work with audio. Having those breaks for me was good because I felt that working with a fresh mind in each part of the process made me more creative and I did not feel overworking on it.
I used Premiere Pro for post-production and to record the voices of the characters. Instrumental music used in this animation is from the Incompetech website. Tools used: Camera, Tripod, desk lamp.
Last but not least, I want to say thank you to all of us that are trying our best to keep up with this quarantine term. I wish you all the best and hope to meet you in person in other classes. It was such a great experience looking and get inspired by the beautiful work among all of us.
Keep doing creative work,
Stay healthy and safe.
We made it!!
