There’s a collaborative animation project gathering momentum at blipfoto during the Edinburgh Festival.
The idea is that thousands of participants upload photos of family and friends one by one, posed in one of eight poses that together make up an animated walk cycle.
The pictures below will make it clear.
Remember to check out the BlipFoto site on the 26th of August to see the completed film. – Why not join in and send your own side-on view?
Brought to you by that slightly unhinged partnership of Belgian animators, Stéphane Aubier et Vincent Patar.
Following their success with more than 20 Panic in the Village shorts, Aubier and Patar will premiere their feature length film of the same name in June in Belgium, and then later on in France, around October.
I must confess that I preferred the completely madcap squash-and-stretch-to-the-limit style of their earlier work in Pic Pic & André, click the horse and pig you find on this page.
