Animation 2D

Eadweard Muybridge, the famous photographer, shows us in first person how he takes a step in slow motion. Short film made in the International Academy of Media and Arts eV in Halle, Germany.

I like the topic of everyday actions and the capacity of the body for activity. In animation the topic of movement and locomotion is always present, but what I pretended was to talk about the movement itself, to analyse and study it and its repercussions.

My proposal for the EAM course was focused on the gait cycle, it is “the period of time between any two identical events in the walking cycle”. The idea for the short film was to explain in detail, little by little, how to take a step. Walking is an innate and essential movement, and it is needed every day. Locomotion is defined as “the ability of animals to move from place to place by their own action”.
