After a month or so of planning Linda and I were finally able to get together and work on the stop motion project. This day took almost a year to get to and was very rewarding. The production itself was pretty seamless, the only issues we ran into were minor placements of materials.
Stop motion is a very tedious process, pieces must be moved precisely and accurately to convey motion. Of course the artist can choose to embrace the chaos of choppy motion, but a lack of continuity can make the project look sloppy and not chaotic.
The main takeaway from this project was that I should have more fun with my art. It is very easy to become so obsessed in the process of making as well as the thought process of subjectivity and meaning of a piece. This project showed me that I should prioritize a solid scheduled. But that I should always take joy in what I create and embrace every curveball.
