Inspirations and Influences

By October 10, 2015Honours Project

In this week’s practical session we were asked to consider our interests and influences that might help to shape our project.

  • What about stop motion do I want to explore?
  • What do I want to learn?
  • Is stop motion digital enough?
  • What have I found out so far?
  • What practice tasks can I do?

For concept development we will look at other artist’s work and reflect on visual influences (how/what/why is the visual meaning on the work?)

We were asked to list visual things that we like:

  • Architecture – Gothic, Victorian
  • Tim Burton
  • Laika Animation
  • Batman: The Animated Series (Bruce Timm’s art)
  • Superheroes
  • Pixar Animation

To which I expanded into a larger mind map:

I have already watched a few films from my inspirations such as Laika and Tim Burton which I plan to analyse in a further case study.
