Awesome Artbreak Animation Wall 2011!!

This is a video for a really cool project that was done at "Artbreak". Artbreak is a student arts festival held in Shreveport La it celebrates the art programs and artistic achievements of students in Caddo and Bossier Parish Schools.

This animation was done by Moonbot Studios in collaboration with the Robinson Film Center.

"This stop-motion animation project is the result of a collaboration between the Robinson Film Center, Moonbot Studios, and over 200 kids at Shreveport's annual Artbreak student art show. It was recorded over the course of 3 days.

The animation itself is comprised of 736 still images (or "frames") played back at 10 frames per second for 73.6 seconds of video (or 1 minute 14 seconds).

The process involved drawing, erasing, and redrawing a character over and over for each frame of the animation. So one second worth of animation would equate to ten separate drawings of the same character, gradually changing or moving in each iteration.

The wall itself was 60 feet long and 8 feet tall and we recorded the images on a Canon 7D that was mounted to a 60-foot homemade dolly track. Each shot was taken at one-inch intervals on the track so that when assembled, it would create the illusion of a moving dolly shot. So at 10 frames per second, it takes just over a second to move a foot on the dolly track."
