Design Assignment – Animated Movie Posters

In this assignment, you’re supposed to pick a movie poster and animate it in some way. I picked this up initially thinking it wouldn’t be too difficult, especially for a 4.5 star assignment, but boy was I wrong. I chose 2001 because it was the last movie I watched, and …

Amerika: Pain & Gain

Animated Movie Poster

For this assignment, I made an animated poster for the Twilight Zone episode “Time Enough At Last“. This was my favorite episode so far, but it was also the most depressing so I ended up in bed afterwards and drowned out some of the pain with the ever …

Psycho Animated Movie Poster

Phew! This poster is done!
It was harder to make than the previous four Hitchcock posters to date, but the real problem was that other efforts became a distraction over the past few weeks (good stuff honestly). But I was able to lock in over the past couple of days…

Master of the Flying Guillotine Animated Movie Poster

When I saw the Master of the Flying Guillotine movie poster, I knew I had to animate it for this ds106 design assignment. This is a very rough first draft, and I only got this far thanks to Tim Owens’ seemingly boundless patience with my idiotic Photoshop questions (it was…

Reorienting My Compass, North by Northwest?

It’s been over a year since I first discovered ds106 and it’s amazing to me how much creative energy I’ve discovered since then – I’ve made more work in the past year than I have in the previous ten, seriously.

Wack a #DS106 Mole

A few days ago I noticed that Alan Levine is mashing up ds106 assignments withThe ds106 Remix Machine. This, briefly, allows you to take an assignment from DS106 and add a filter. Shades of John Davit’s Learning Event Generators.
For example this remix: stop frame photography [remixed]: Uncle Bob ?…

At the Mountains of Madness

I found this through a google image search. Since it was posted on a discussion forum, I was able to contact the creator (stuart) for permission to molest his work. I’m not sure if this movie project is still underway, but that’s okay. I doubt it would have been an…

An animated gif(t) for #ds106

When I first heard the distant sirens of ds106, it was just an amusing buzz, and easily ignored. But each time they came back, they grew louder and more alluring. Soon I began to search for them, to make them stop the distracting noises, or so I thought.  After I…

Animated Movie Poster Attempt 1

Here’s my first attempt at an animated movie poster, as well as my first real post for DS106 pt 2! It doesn’t really look like the other animated posters but this was my take on them. It’s basically the “frame” of the real movie poster. I removed most of the…

The wild mating call of the animated gif has lured me once more to the clutches of ds106. For this assignment I went to http://www.impawards.com/ to check out the selection of movie posters. Although I’m not familiar with this flick the look of the poster was just begging for that…
