INTERLACE PROJECT OWT CREATIVE.
Okaaay, obviously hitting a few problems now-but as I’m into serious test mode thats unsurprising. However by its very nature Stop Motion is time consuming and even just a test of 20 odd seconds can take all day. Getting familair with equipment in the Photography studio etc etc. But I’m learning, thats the whole point of this exercise…well that and having something to submit for the
OWT creative brief. Deadline looming….
So a few points from this test.
1-The relationship between text size and width of the strips of weave-has to be right size or message gets lost and super fragmented-as opposed to just a a bit of fragmentation.This is what has happened here, asthetcally it could be quite pleasing, but it fails as the message is lost and too fragmented to read.
2-Both warp and weft (horizontal and vertical strips) need to be held in place-possibly by some surrounding edge thats fixed to the surface.
3-You need gaps at each intersection that the warp and weft cross, or else there is too much tension and you can’t pull the strip. Bear this in mind when putting together content.
4-It works best when you only pull either the warp or weft-ie if your pulling just the warp strips then the weft are fixed and dont move-but this is unsatisfactory.
Now its back to the drawing board, spend a couple of days putting together a better production technique and design that works.Either that or give up, but i’ve already devoted to much time to this idea so i’m not binning it just yet. I think I can still getit to work. Dogged tenacity and perseverance.
