Project 2 – GIF’s making and Dragonframe

Today I’ve  mainly learnt how to use program ‘Dragonframe’ and how to make stop motion videos using it, also I’ve learnt how to make GIF’s using ‘Photoshop’. That was quite a useful information, although it has totally changed my mind about the way I want to do my stop motion project. I’m feeling looooooost.

Risograph Workshop/ Book Binding Workshop

Today we had a book binding induction. Started with looking at different kind of books, printed with risograph or screen printer. There were many interesting examples, that gave me many ideas for my book for Petticoat Lane project. There’s some examples:

After this, we’ve started binding our own books using glue. It’s a really simple, but exiting way to do it. I’ve made myself a very first notebook! Also, after this tutor has shown us few more different ways you can bind your books. There was a lot to learn from!

Other half of the day we’ve spent organising and doing riso printing. It was a bit disappointing to find out about a price for it and the thing that we’re not allowed to use it by ourselves, we have to be with a tutor. There’s what we did today:
