“Walking” by Ryan Larkin


we watched it again in animation history class yesterday and it seems that everytime i watch it, i seem to get something new out from it! i was studying it last semester for my stop-motion final on how he manages to capture various actions in the fluctuations in timing and i kept staring at mins 2.37 to 3.23 (that’s my favourite part.) yet i don’t know why i didn’t notice something before! his use of watercolour shapes to imply different nationalities, different ages, different social classes, all with silhouette shapes! amazing. and how he distinguishes the walk of a well-heeled lady to the bounce-in-the-step energy of youth to the confident stride of a businessman in suit.
