Animation

I took a short animation course last year at MUDDUM Art Space (http://www.muddum.cz/eng/index.html). Short Art courses are held there though out the year. My fashion teacher did some work there and she found out about my animation. So she's been wanting to see it.

We made five short animation clips using clay, charcoal, food, pixelation and finally random objects. The basic principle is 'for every short/slight movement take a picture'. The main essentials are a camera, a room/space, raw materials and computer programs. Each workshop ran in the same order:
Step 1. Ideas -think of a story/script
Step 2. Work on the background, props etc.
Step 3. Act out the story, for each movement take a photograph - less pictures for a fast motion, more pictures for a slow one. Take into consideration the motion of the subject.
Step 4. Computer work - compile the photographs, edit them on photoshop and make the video. We used adobe premiere - arranged the pictures with time, added a title, music/sound effects, credits etc. 
The faster the pictures are flashed, the more it looks like an inanimate object is animate.

Clay Animation
Childish - Starts with a baby hatching from an egg. The baby then passes through some obstacles to get to the breast.


Charcoal
Sweet Dreams - about a girl's dream of the world being developed and then destroyed.


Food
Green Ballet - fruits and vegetables play around before they are eaten. The main motif was supposed to be food but we also added in some pixelation.


Pixelation
Eating Disorders - Just a regular meal and then some strange creatures show up.


The final video clip featuring objects isn't on youtube and unfortunately I cannot seem to upload my copy of it onto the blog. 
Since the workshop I have made my own animation with the little resources I have. Animation is fun, just that it takes time, patience and I still need to learn more on motion. I really don't know how things move?!

5 Tips to get Ready for a Date in the Eleventh Hour

Getting ready for a date is overwhelming and fun. This is one occasion when the girls want everything to be perfect. Most of the women start preparing for the date days before ago. However, there are occasions when you plan an instant outing. This is a tricky situation when you can’t deny the invitation of your special one and at the same time you just can’t compromise with your looks.

Winter Date Night

It's Date night! What do I Wear?!

To quote Amy Farrah Fowler of The Big Bang Theory, “There are two things that say you have a boyfriend and he is real: matching costumes and sex tapes.“ Well, I won't dwell on the latter, but there is lots to be said about matching or complementary couple outfits.
Recently, I got contacted by Bonobos.  A menswear clothing brand focused on delivering great fit and a fun approach to fashion. Bonobos love style and class!  They are running a Winter Style Challenge to see what kind of outfits can accompany looks from their new line of suits.
So if you got a date night planned. Look hot and stylish when you head out with your boyfriend by using these looks for inspiration.

JemCon 2014

I was picked as a finalist for JemCon 2014!

JemCon is an annual convention which celebrates the Jem animated series and line of fashion dolls from Hasbro.
They run different contests every year and one of them is a fashion design contests that aims to design an outfit for a Jem doll to wear. The winning design will be made and used as the theme for the Jem convention.
This years objective was to design a "showgirl" themed outfit for one of the Holograms or Misfits to wear on stage. You are allowed a maximum of two entries. I submitted two but only one was selected as a top ten finalist. To be honest my other design did have quite a few small details that may not be easily produced in doll size...
I will definitely try designing for JemCon the next time around too. However, if you are curious to know, the winner was design number 2, chosen by member votes.
