Exercise 2: Cut Up Cinema

• Create photographs of yourself or friend(s). Be sure to photograph against a high-contrast solid background to make it easier to “pull off” the figure.

• In Photoshop cut the person out of the image to create a digital puppet.

• Use Puppet Warp Tool to animate the cropped photography

• Duplicate your person into various frames.

• In each frame create variations of the person using the Puppet Warp tool.

• Open the Timeline panel and create a “Frame Animation”.

• By presenting each layer on different frames create an animation of you or a friend in various positions.

• Add background layers or more people or text… Have fun with it.
