I recently saw the animated teasers illustrator Robert Hunter released for his books on Instagram. These teasers were perfect for a platform like Instagram! but could also work on Facebook and Twitter, they were short from 3-7 seconds and looped, They had sound (although not sure this is needed) and they brought the books to life. I thought it would be awesome to do a similar thing for 3000 Chairs, a selection of maybe 3 short looping animation that could be posted on the build up to the date of the show.
The animation for these two teasers is way beyond what I could achieve in the short space of time I have for this module so I will have to come up with a way to make the process quicker, maybe rotoscoping or some kind of stop motion.
I have done small animated GIFs in the past which are rather rough but have a homemade quality that I like. These can be done prety quickly too.
These animated GIFs are obviously much simpler than the teaser might be but having done these I am confident that I can produce about three 3-7 second teasers for 3000 Chairs.
