Set Thumbnails

I found some thumbnails from when I took a stop motion set design class last spring.  Before considering colors, textures, and lighting, we had to start with a very strong foundation.  Numbering helps make note-taking a whole lot simpler.  Some thumbnails are studies on where I want to try to lead the eye.  It’s an exercise out of Create Your Own Stage Sets by Terry Thomas.

It was very collaborative, the design being the responsibility of the sets class while another class was simultaneously developing the story and the design of the characters.  We had some days where both classes overlapped to make sure we were all on the same page.

It’s so exciting to see how closely the finished product resembles the early renderings.
