Continuing with research for my current project, I am finding more ways in which fashion is being communicated through moving image. I think that by using this technique is an effective way to show an over-view of a collection as these in particular link to various fashion weeks this process is being used all over the world for this purpose. It allows a quick interesting insight to the designers collections of work, in my opinion more so than just a photograph. They catch your eye quicker and hold your attention for longer than photograph due to them moving so quickly from each model. For me it makes me want t know more about the designer or the brand compered to looking through a static collection can transitioning one image into another. Gives you a feel of the mood the collection is trying to create as a body of work. I would love to explore this way of communicating more within my own practice.
Exploring quick and simple moving images that could link to my current project around an interactive Fashion look-book. Could I make a series of these then take through to adobe after effects and premier pro to create the final sequence?
Learning the principle of animation in the studio;
- Time/ Increment
- Squash/ Stretch
- Holding position boil and breathing, loops, giffs, automata
we had a one day workshop exploring how moving image is formed how to create simple animations using analogue techniques as well as digital techniques. I get a bit nervous of the thought of this process as it looks so complex but ultimately its not. Its just creating a still image in a sense but building it up into a sequence what ever this maybe, understanding the reason for the movement and the world can do anything.
simple quick tests I played with in the workshop one using photography and the other using drawing.
We was also asked to make a ball move which once I grasped it was quite fun and quick, by being able to do this simple task is one of the the most simplest ways to match the theory with the visual.
