Preparing for Failure

As seniors Brian Twigg, and I decided to take a Stop Motion Animation Class for fun. Neither of us needed the credits but thought it would be enjoyable while providing a good challenge. We ended up attempting a project on a scale we had not dealt with previously. 

Trying to combine our love of typography with stop motion animation we initially experimented with small scale drawings. We loved the result of being able to see quotes grow on a wall and decided to run with that idea. 

The quote we decided upon is "Ever Tried? Ever Failed? No Matter. Try Again. Fail Again. Fail Better." by Samuel Beckett. It fits our school while also aligning with our philosophy towards design.

Pro Trip: The real fun starts at 3:54 in the video. The start of the video sums ups our process and a semester of work.
