Jonathan Safran Foer re-imagines the book as a sculptural object. He has taken an existing story (Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz) and by carefully carving each page reveals another story, hidden within the original.
Whether you create your animations by hand or using the latest computer software doesn't matter, these are just tools - it is the story and the characters that entertain and gets the audience involved.
Link to John Lasseter Course notes from Siggraph 94, "animation tricks" PDF :
Take your favourite film, turn off the sound and see just how much has been lost... most of the missing atmospheric sounds will have been created by a Foley artist like Gary.
It is often said, that given excellent sound we will put up with bad visual quality, but it usually doesn't work the other way around. Poor sound quality is just annoying.
As part of our Digital Storytelling workshops, we hope soon to be offering the creation of Foley sounds as part of the Garageband workshop.
