Tryptic Animation

Our 3rd assignment was to create an animation out of one of the tryptics we did from the previous assignment.  This was the first time I worked with animation, and I did all the animating in a Photoshop document. I wanted to experiment with different types of movement rather than your basic flying object, and the fact that my original tryptic was facing the wrong way created a challenege for me to work with. The hardest part about the animation was figuring out how I could move each layer within the sequence.

Photoshop Tryptic

(click pictures to enlarge)

I can only describe my work as a collection of random chaos. The images I have collected really don't go with one another, but I think that is part of the appeal to my piece. I never started with a clear viewpoint of where I wanted to go with the images, but I kept getting newer and better ideas as I worked with each picture. I had a good laugh creating each montage, and I am very happy with the end result.

Thrift Store Montage

Class of '53

As soon as I saw the old class photograph, I knew it was the image I wanted to work with. I loved the idea of turning something that is looked to be so common into a wilder version of itself. As soon as I got the class picture, I tore through magazines trying to find the best pictures to go into my montage. I'd say the only thing I would've changed would be to pay more attention to the composition of the piece, because I think the randomness may take away from the image as a whole. Overall, I am proud of my end product, and I really enjoy each aspect of it.
