This work examines the idea of movement and sound.
By using a stop motion technique, I was able to bring the Airpod to life. Instead of walking on two feet like my previous stop motion, I had the Airpod walking on all fours. I made the sounds myself, by clicking the Airpod case and making snoring sounds towards the end.
This work is similar to the work of Bourdic, C, Coursimault, T, Culliver, S, Halberstam, N, Mosny, M & Ye, Z who directed the short 3d printed stop motion animation Latitude Du Printemps (2020). Latitude Du Printemps follows a dog, cyclist and aspiring astronaut as they live their day to day lives.
By examining stop motion works like Latitude Du Printemps (2020), I was able to take inspiration from the stop motion techniques as well as their use of sound. The characters in the short film move like toys, with jolting motions, adding a youthful and naive tone to the film. The sound supports this tone, using noises that could be from a children’s game or tv show.
