Here’s a character for my next animation! He’s a polar bear! For this guy, I am trying out Roma Plasticina. Once I got the clay heated up it was great to work with. The clay is white, which is, of course, why he’s a polar bear. Hopefully I will have an animation test soon.
Here are some preview photographs:

Our first assignment for Motion Graphics for Interactive Media was to create a stop-motion animation! In this one, a little pig stumbles across a pile of veggies, and has to fend off a bigger pig.
Despite my best intentions, I have not done any stop-motion since Mr. Magpie so I was excited to do another one. Hopefully I’ll be doing some more very soon!
Here are some stills:
Here is my final project for Motion Graphics, Spring 2011.
Our assignment was to create a music video. I chose the song “Morning Mr. Magpie” by Radiohead, and decided to try my hand at stop-motion animation. This is pretty much my first attempt at claymation. It is also my favorite thing I have done for school, ever!
Here are a few production stills:
Here is my first assignment for Motion Graphics for Video and Film. We were to take a print piece we had done previously and create a motion graphic from it. I chose my personal identity project from last year.
In the personal identity assignment, I created animals and other characters from my initials A.W., so here are a few of them in motion. The animation had to end with the final print piece, in this case the main logo.
Here’s an old assignment from Media Design a couple years ago. I always liked this one, because I personally thought it was pretty funny! I didn’t post this initially but now I am remedying that. For this assignment we were to arrange photos in a way that told a clear narrative. We could take photos ourselves, or we could use found images. I went with the former to tell a story of an apple who meets an unfortunate end. The one thing I could have done to make this piece a little stronger would be to use one red apple and one green, so that it was more clear that the two apples were different characters.
Here is is:
Here is the first project from Video Aesthetics and Techniques. It’s called “The Pursuit of Fuzziness”.
For this assignment, we were to go around taking pictures of stuff we thought was cool. Once we had our pictures, we were supposed to find a theme or a story from the photos. I found that I took a lot of pictures of fake animals, and I went from there.
I would say I am relatively happy with this, although I don’t feel like it’s my best work. What do you think?
This is the second video assignment for VP&T. In the first assignment, we were to create a one-minute video with no edits. This time around, we had to create a 30-second video with many edits.
I made quick cuts of stressful things, cutting in an image of a bike rider. (Mark) As the piece progresses, the stressful shots fade away . . .

Here is the first video for Video Production & Techniques. In this assignment, we were to do a one minute video without any edits. This one starred my mom.
Here is the second video project for Media Design, Fall 2008. The assignment was to adapt an Ellen Goodman column of our choice into an aural and visual adaptation. I chose “A Tale of Two Turkeys.” This time, my mom stars!
Here is the first video project for Media Design, Fall 2008. The assignment was to adapt a poem of our choice into an aural and visual adaptation. I chose “The Street” by Octavio Paz. This stars my dad.
