For my Physics of Animation class, we had an assignment on creating a stop-motion character animation. Like my last stop-motion, I wanted to use my Tsum Tsums. However, for this animation I wanted to make to create my own story. I also wanted to challenge myself on not having any dialogue and try to have the Tsums communicate with their bodies and add sound effects to it. I had an idea of the Tsum Tsums wanting a snack, but they couldn't get it because of a bigger Tsum Tsum. They then devise a successful plan in distracting the bigger Tsum Tsum, yet there's a twist at the end. The Tsums I decided to use were Mickey Mouse and his pals, along with a bigger Pluto Tsum. I even added "mean eyebrows" on the big Pluto Tsum to show that it's not only his size the mini Tsum Tsums are afraid of him.
In creating this, I used a DSLR camera to take the pictures, used Adobe Photoshop to edit them, and Adobe Premiere to make the video. Compared to the last stop-motion, I had a harder time working on this due to the number of characters I had—which lead to more movement—and the weather conditions that was happening during the weekend. Other than that, I enjoyed making this!!
