Shadow Play

The Brief
In a collaborative environment, one must create an animation for a spcific location and client. This animation was created by Kate Wixley, Matt Tam, Ara Mohite and Max Zimmerer.

The Approach
My group decided to create an animation for a children’s hospital, in India specifically, for the children to interact with while they are waiting and distract from any nerves in seeing the doctor. We made a stop motion animation using a lightbox, so that when the animation is projected, the child’s shadow would become a part of the piece. 

The Impact

  • An interactive spin on stop-motion animations that takes the format and audience into consideration. 

  • A succeessful collaborative experience.
