Project 4

For this project, I worked collaboratively with Jenna. Our clip was based on the fictional "cootie" bug and it's effect on children in America. We used a newscast theme to introduce and close the clip and the cootie bug was shown using stop-motion animation. The music clips used were a generic news theme and a jazz song composed by a friend. For the animation process, we used both a white-board/drawing and paper cutouts. Our antics throughout the clip made the video into an extremist parody of the news. Originally, we had many varied ideas, but we could not decide on the content for those stories. In this project however, we improvised on set with our lines. Also, being in a studio we were able to use a still/projected picture as our backdrop.
