Creating Animations from Wildlife Cam Captures

Students in Moving Image Art were given footage captured by wildlife cameras around the university and asked to create a rotoscoped video in their desired styles. Rotoscoping is a frame by frame process to capture motion in existing video footage. Students used drawing, masking, and/or effects to alter the footage and recreate it in a new form. The goal in this project was to re-present animals in order to encourage viewers to see them differently.

This work will be screened along with other student animations at the BioPresence exhibition
