So here’s another new frame from my next animation. Below the sample frame are some images that show how I make it. Dioramas and scanner – pretty simple – but the effects are dramatic and completely unpredictable, which I like. It’s a trial and error process which feels like the opposite of how animations are normally constructed. I don’t know what the scanned images will look like ahead of time so I just have to keep shifting colors and backgrounds until I get something I am happy with.
The final frame
In process – this is what one of the dioramas will look like when it’s ready to be scanned. Background images will cover the diorama, providing the atmosphere you can see in the first image.
