I had four sculpture assignments over the summer for an advanced placement art class, and I combined the projects to create this short animation, "Day Shift." This is the first piece I have shot in HD. I also used this piece to beta test the new version of iStopMotion for Boinx software that will be coming out in a few weeks. The character is made out of 1000 metal washers and the set is all found objects. Check it out here!

This is quite a departure from my other animation work, but I think it turned out pretty well. Any comments, questions, or constructive criticism is gladly welcomed.

I loved it 
quick question does the model have wire armature or something more advanced?

I would like to add that some of the things that i liked the most was the gear animation(it looked so good I thought it was live action) and I also liked when he pulled down the lever and the washer over the top got bigger

Wow, Ian, that was incredible. What I thought was amazing was how smooth your animation is now, just watch the first Episode of Beaver Creek, and then watch that. Amazing.

He has a very simple wire armature, the wire just goes through the hole in the washer, so they are not glued down which is why they move. He is VERY heavy, and sort of hard to work with, but I was able to manage.

wow must have taken a long time

iantimothy Posted: Aug 31st 2012

actually not really as long as you would think. It only took about 2 1/2 weeks to animate.
