This week’s class was Mike’s workshop- creating an animated clay village.
The first step in the process was creating the clay village. Mike asked us to make at least one clay being to inhabit the village and I think most people created more creatures, items and even buildings! I always forget how relaxing and meditative molding clay is. Letting your mind float and going with whatever your hands make.
The second part of the workshop was positioning our beings and getting ready to film. This was a lot of fun as from the very beginning we started to have some casualties- mostly limb related.
During those 20seconds of animation we had relationships happen, families afraid for their lives, murder, animal attacks and chases and buildings fall apart… it was a busy day in the village.
For my project I have finally manage to set up the live stream on Sunday.
