[00:03] The Cucaranchula • A short film written and directed by Kate Balsley. For this short film, I designed and animated the 2.5D sequences, I planned and machined-out the armature parts (with my metals instructor, Frankie Flood’s guidance), constructed and fabricated the full spider armature puppet myself, I animated and shot the stop motion sequences, and I executed the puppet tricks during the live action scenes with the Actors on set. The short is not available to watch in-full online yet, but check out some of the production documented here = flickr.com/photos/brookeduckart/sets/72157630192246652

[00:42] Muybridge in Metal •  I constructed a copper Zoetrope with pierced brass slides of  Eadweard Muybridge’s “Galloping Horse.”  Production documented = flickr.com/photos/brookeduckart/sets/72157625144309896

[00:48] cat WACO • An animated music video for Screamin’ Cyn-Cyn & the Pons. The concept is my adaptation of their lyrics and I designed and constructed the set, props, and all of the characters myself. This was the first stop motion animation I had ever done and it was created without any screen grabbing software assistance, taken on my Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS, and edited it all together in Final Cut.  Full animation = vimeo.com/33096181  Production documented = flickr.com/photos/brookeduckart/sets/72157623714602593/

[01:11] Motion Monsters • These are a couple clips from a bigger series I did for HitRECord.org, I did the motion-capture, the cutting up and prepping 2D drawings for animating, then the character animating and FXs for each clip. The clips I show here were created out of the character drawings and video footage contributions of the following HitRECord.org members: sojushots, pprescott, MelonBerri, Jerryliufilmmaker, SRL73, 12.42, OliviaAbtahi, adhgraphicdesign, roketsientist33, and Jane_TH.

[01:32] God-like • An animated music video to the song of the same title preformed by Gogol Bordello. The concept is my adaptation of their lyrics, I designed the characters, and did all of the animation and recording. Full version = vimeo.com/66397334
