Final Projects of Master Stop Motion began!

Our students from the Stop Motion Master have begun to work on their final projects, which will be two animated shortfilms with a technique and thematic of their choice. Here we see them in action! Over the past month, each group of students have developed a story for their film. With guidelines from our teachers in the Master, they arrived to a solid script and storyboard. This will help them plan the production steps properly.     During the following weeks, they will be ending the Character design stage, and building the scenery located in […]

Puppet Construction Classes

This week, our students from Master Stop Motion  started to construct their characters for animation. Eduard Puertas, industrial designer and stop motion animator in Citoplasmas, showed them different building techniques to make a simple but efficient skeleton to animate. Starting from their own character designs, students developed different methods that were a better fit for their designs. The results are some pretty unique and functional puppets for animation! We hope to see some new animations from our students with their own puppets very soon !

Experimental Animation with Antoni Pinent

In the world of Stop Motion animation, there are many different techniques, and it’s easier to recognize some of them more than others (Ex. Puppet animation, Cut-out). Nevertheless, we can find other ways to animate, and that is actually one of the big objectives in the Master of Stop Motion of BAU: to encourage the students to get familiar with more unknown techniques and try out different materials and processes. Last week, the class had the chance to learn about experimental animation with the Film Maker and Curator Antoni Pinent. The invitation was to create their own […]

Making a shortfilm in the Master of Stop Motion Animation at BAU

The process of doing a shortfilm in the Master of Stop Motion Animation in BAU is always very interesting. Finding the right story is really hard, especially when you work in a group. Everybody has many ideas and it’s necessary to compromise and make choices that are functional for the whole team. Once you agree on the concept and the storyboard, the designing and building of the set and puppets begin. Adapting the material to your story or the other way around gives you new ideas for the construction. When you start animating you know you will have unexpected […]

The students from Stop Motion Bau Master just finished their workshop in Character Construction.

With Eduard, the class learned some basic and efficient techniques to build a puppet. Finally, teacher and costume designer Anna Isaichina showed them different ways to do the clothes and accessories […]
