I’m working on animation for a music video for Human Ottoman. I am attempting a style known as “rotoscoping.” This was used by Disney artists, in the Beatles film, “Yellow Submarine” and Ralph Bashki in his film “American Pop.”
Here are some pictures
Basicallly, I put a projector on a keyboard stand pointing down onto my desk.
From there, I bring up the movie I am tracing and go frame by frame. Then I will edit the drawings in Photoshop. The layers tool allows me to stack them by assigning different layers more transparency. Then I think I will use Apple iMovie to put them together and “print” as a moving image.
I can do wild weird effects to the drawings, color them, or cut them up and move them around stop motion stlyle. I will post more here when I finish.
