Tiny Circus traveled to Gatlinburg, TN, land of swimming holes and bears, to teach an animation class at the Arrowmont school. Class participants began by illustrating an common idiom (a stitch in time saves nine) to learn various animating processes
Next, the class turned to a more familiar topic and began to created an animated bear trap.
Here, animating a chair lift behind a scene of Gatlinburg.
Creating a cardboard bear trap, spray painted gold, of course.
It was a great week with many trips to swim and some late-night animating with a corn-dog. We'll be back soon. Check our youtube page for the final version of the animation.
Tiny Circus is a community based art-project and spectacle that rolls from place to place in vintage airstream trailers. We make and show short animations that make up a show entitled: "The Other Histories of the World". You can find out more here, and contact us here.
Our goal is to provide free community based art and entertainment. We are on a shoestring and funding this work ourselves. Your micro-grant will be greatly appreciated and help start the mobile projection pods a-rolling. If you would like to be a friend and supporter of the Tiny Circus, please click here.
