I’ve spent the majority of my hours this semester with a Centiq pen in my hand. (Centiq pens, dear reader(s), are these magical pens that allow you to draw right onto a computer screen, like drawing on a digital piece of paper.)
Here’s a short rotoscoping exercise I had to do using a short clip of Radiohead’s music video for their track “Lotus Flower.” Rotoscoping is an animation technique where animators trace live-action footage frame by frame to create animated footage that feels a whole lot like real life. Think “A Scanner Darkly” or “Waking Life.”
COMING UP NEXT:
1. My final animation project, a forty-second hand-drawn movie.
2. An update to the “Travel” section covering my experience interning at the Cannes Film Festival in France.
