Inspirations and Influences

By October 10, 2015 May 11th, 2016 Honours 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.
