Exploring Vine -
After some creative exploration in vine there are some interesting techniques and idea's that have the potential to be expanded upon. We started with the idea of creating long time-lapse vines which when exploring became shorter stop-frame animations.
We attempted to isolate an instance of time and repeat it for the duration of the vine. We chose the moment a water bottle would collide with a table when dropped. The result is a violent and aggressive rattling bottle.
It was interesting to see such a basic action becoming something more complex. We are hoping to explore this idea of collisions, and find different objects which create different emotional responses. The bottle on the hard table was clearly a negative action but what about something softer or lighter? Could we vine a collision that demonstrates creation, destruction or possible a mixture of the two?
This is one of the most basic actions that can be performed with tools and objects. In the iconic 2001 space odyssey introduction, the dawn of man is symbolized by the action of colliding bone with rock. This use of basic tools can be seen in some wildlife footage.
Example vines -
Below are some of our early examples of Stop motion collision. The camera is "jumpy"and the technique is obvious but this adds to the "scratchy" method of creating vines. Even in the perfect stop motion the skill might be recognized but the technique is always clear.
