I made this video using a Magic Candle from Grand Illusions Ltd. and an illustrator file of my favorite character, Mr. Yoks. I used music from Free Music Archive. Trying to integrate animation and live action is something that I am interested in exploring. The idea of imagination leaking into the “real world” will always keep my attention. It’s a lot easier animating when you have this anchor of footage shot as your canvas. I’m not sure if I am going to do a second episode of this style. I think it depends on the encouragement I get and my workload over spring break.
Housemate critique: Needs a mouth and some moving hair. Otherwise it just looks like a lame Popsicle stick puppet.
