Oscar Winning Animated Short Film

You will recognize some masterpieces:

Oscar-winning Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase filmed in 1992. 
Pioneering this technique was one-time Vinton animator Joan Gratz. This is a unique technique in which every frame is set and shot one by one to give an animated look to the art. The technique is called Clay Painting. According to Wikipedia - Clay painting animation (which is also a variation of the direct manipulation animation process), is animation where clay is placed and flattened on a flat supporting surface and moved like "wet" oil paints as on a traditional artistic canvas to produce any style of images, but with a clay 'look' to them, filmed frame-by-frame by an animation camera (shooting from above, an in a traditional animation stand) after each small adjustment of the clay images.

    Evaluación curso 2011-2012

    Aunque aún nos quedan días de clase y trabajos que rematar y alguno nuevo... (una sorpresa que os va a gustar, espero). Os incluyo aquí un cuestionario que ES OBLIGATORIO. Por supuesto, no influirá en las notas, en absoluto. Se trata de una evaluación de la asignatura y cómo se ha desarrollado este curso. Porque los profesores también nos tenemos que evaluar a nosotros mismos.

    Está todo en castellano para que los grupos no bilingües también puedan completarlo. Cuando termines de rellenarlo, pulsa el botón de abajo ENVIAR, y lo recibiré. Espero y deseo que seáis sinceros. Muchas gracias.
