A New Animation for SHEBEE Jewelry
Just wrapping stop motion animation shoot for NYC jewelry designer, SHEBEE in NYC and New Mexico.
After a short black and white test animation with the beautiful beads, SHEBEE works with, I brought the shop to Western New Mexico University in Silver City, NM to get the fine help of Peter Bill and his students in the IDEA interdisciplinary arts programme.
Several students jumped on board. We started conforming a collection of images I had gathered for the project to our dollhouse scale to match the designers beads.
Some skeletons I started the puppet design with.
with some colour
Cutting, colouring and assembling puppets and interiors.
I used several dirty, funky macro lens options with heavy star filters to photograph the animation.
Here are some looks I got shooting back at the OOF studio in NYC.
