Talking Heads

For this exercise we were instructed to take at least eight frames of a drive-in movie ad and create some sort of animation in the spirt of George Melies. I separated Mr. Suit’s head from his body and placed them on separate frames, where I applied clipping masks and vector masks to change the color and clean up the edges. I used the repair brush and healing brush to clean up his severed neck and give the illusion of an empty suit. I also adjusted the overall color scheme of the film clip, because the orange was killing my eyes.

I’m already familiar with this version of Photoshop’s animation tool, although I haven’t used it in a long time. This exercise was a good warmup for the rest of Project 3.

Using this clip was strange, because this man looks very much like my late Grandfather…
