Aug(De)Mented Reality by Marty Cooper
An interesting combination of cel animation, stop motion, and live action is used by Cooper to create Aug(De)Mented Reality. Though this short has recently been receiving a lot of attention on Reddit, it’s far from Cooper’s first attempt at this technique. On his tumblr, Cooper has several entries using cels overlaid on either live action footage, or in a photo on his instagram. It certainly is a clever technique, and he’s clearly got a solid handle on it. His demonstration of squash and stretch, anticipation, and arcs in his animation shows he has a good understanding of the traditional form. Take some time to check out his stuff and be inspired by the fun and creativity!
