Animation Complete!

I have finally finished animating 'A Future Colour Duathlon' as my final outcome for Nike78.

I challenged the function of my Nikes through an investigation into making alternative use of the shoe (other than wearing it).
I got a little bit involved with the shapes associated with a triathlon (after reading a triathlon magazine) and also the shapes within the form of the trainers before and after I had meddled with them.

The outcome of my Nike 78 project takes inspiration from everything documented in this blog and the very important key words listed below, to create a really rather pointless (but very fun) animation.

Very important key words include:

Chief Babatunde
Colour Trails

I won't post the animation just yet until the projects have been posted on the Nike78 website.
But then you will be able to see the full 1 minute of silly colour fun in all its pointless glory. Come back soon!

Electric Shocks

After some minor delays due to broken down computers, I am back on track with the making of my animation for the outcome of my Nike78 project.
Almost finished, here is a peek at some stills from it so far.

Today I Will Make An Animation

I am going to make a short animation incorporating all the shapes, colours and fun ideas I have discovered through the study of my pair of Nike trainers.

The first things to do is collect the shapes I associate with these 2 categories:

My Nikes + Duathlon (Running + Cycling)

These are some of them.

Chief Babatunde

I put my Nikes on Chief Babatunde so he could stand in the garden. They fit him better than me anyway.

"If you have a body, you are an athlete"

Today I tried to make my dog wear my Nike trainers, but she was having none of it. She's silly.
