You Can Go Your Own Way

A Family Portrait from Joseph Pierce on Vimeo.

The thing with rotoscoping is that you can spend more time thinking about style and less time thinking about motion. It's all laid out there for you, so you can do what you wish with the lines. Either follow them faithfully, as I am doing, which often creates very quirky motion rather than Disney-quality fluidity, or you can appropriate the lines, change the motion, and develop characters.

I have quite a fondness for anthropomorphism, so after graduating, when I have time to spare, I really want to play around with rotoscoping characters that wear lovely dresses and happen to have the face of a jackalope (for instance). And after searching on Vimeo, I discovered this piece, with a little something like that happening.

The compositing of this film is done so beautifully, and with such a unique twist to this process. I know 10 minutes is longer than most of us like to sit still, but it's definitely worth it.
