The letter I was given was the letter P.
The animation will be playing the song Panda by Desiinger, with the character Pingu, the game character Pacman and a panda drinking Piña colada together at a table, with a beach as the background. I chose funny well known characters and a loveable animal as I wanted my animation to attract attention even thought it may be very short .
A black background with glowing balls on top from the Pacman game, Pacman’s theme music shall be playing while Pacman is moving around in a maze eating the balls from the game, clearing a path forming the letter P to appear through the balls. (Below an example of the balls glowing clearly over the black background).
A plain white background with simple lighting making the background appear clear. Along with leaves or possibly bamboo entering the stop motion Building up to form a shape of the letter P, while miniature P’s start appearing around the background, possibly forming a face.
Plan, materials, props and lighting:
Throughout this animation, I plan on using simple materials such as black paper and white paper. Collecting materials from the outside environment shall be leaves from various trees in order to find which leaves if suitable for my animation. The song will be Panda by Desgiiner, as the lyrics repeat panda in a loop, therefore my animation will not be effective only visually, but also through sound waves. I aim to achieve the animation projecting out at every beat in the song, as if its jumping out towards the audience due to the beating rhythm. The lighting however is going to be done within an area for sunlight to reach, as it will brighten up the white paper, causing an increase in contrast forcing the black paper to appear more boldly along with the leaves. The only prop going to be used is the leaves, as they are the main focus in order structure the letter P.
