LunchBox First Try - Experiment


Marc Spess

The experimental animation that I sent in is really a very half fast job of putting a character together for animating, but I was pretty excited when I got my animation lunchbox in the mail. I was never able to get that kind of instant result to look at since I had always used surface guages, and had faith that my 16mm camera would do the rest. The first thing I was to see what it would be like to view a scene that was animated at 30 frames per second and thats what came out. Nothing really special, but it was pretty exciting to see such instant results. The output is direct from the Video LunchBox to tape.

The second shot I did was to see what animating at thirty frames per second would look like on the lunchbox, by animating a slow move followed by a fast move. The puppet itself was also experimental, and built using aluminum wire for the armature, and padded underneath by a dense blue foam I bought in a hardware store. It worked very well and was very light weight. Of course these shots aren't beautiful, but from experimenting on the lunchbox, I already saved money on film and shipping costs, and the instant feedback is great!
