my creative space: paper boats and repetitive photoshop

June 9, 2011 § 2 Comments

This week’s creative space has been full of the animated music video I’m making in collaboration with lovely Joe Keelan (who spent last night alone in an empty church in the dark recording the music, and Wednesday afternoon on his hands and knees under the tripod, moving my paper cutouts with tweezers while I manned the camera).

You can read and see a bit more about it in this post here. Here are some pictures from today (where I sat glued to the computer adding rainfall to photographs one frame at a time. Phew!):-

To keep me sane I am chain-drinking Pukka tea, eating chocolate digestives, and listening to High Viloet by the National. All of these things are quite gorgeous.

Time for more inspiring animation, this time from Kate Sellers (visuals) and The Random Family (sounds). Feast your eyes and ears:-

Water generally is a big theme for me at the moment, so here are some watery things. Up there are a series of origami boats I’ve been making in preparation for the Random Family‘s album launch next weekend.

As well as obsessive paper-folding, I’m also engaged in the early stages of a stop-motion animation project. Here is a picture of one of the sets as it stands at the moment:-

Here is (some of) the creative carnage in my flat today:-

And here is a very basic attempt to make it rain using watercolour and Photoshop:-

Hope you’re all having wonderful Sundays; I’m off to the beach to blow away the cobwebs x
