︎ Class project for Animation Practices with professor Julie Zammarchi.

︎ Downshot on DSLR with Dragonframe 4, sourced sound with H4 Zoom recorders, soundmixed on Audition. Set and characters made with analog craft.

This one-minute papercraft animation was an exercise in materiality and character design. Methods used for animation included 2D paper puppet techniques, with detachable joints and replaceable hands and feet. The script is sourced from a scene in Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag series.
