Zinnie's Topiary | Cut Paper Animation


The Making of Zinnie's Topiary | Short Film Stop Motion Cut Paper Animation by Lady Lucas | Linzer Lane Blog
A few months ago I had an idea that I wanted to create a series of short, minute long videos that would sort of 'introduce' my Linzer Lane animals to a new audience on YouTube. While riding the subway in January, I put together a storyboard concept for the first movie:

Next, I assembled the pieces by drawing Zinnie various times on watercolor paper:

After that, I conducted a photo shoot of each movie frame and it came out looking like this:

I assembled all the animated frames in a video editing program and VOILA! Here is the finished product!



I hope you enjoyed it!

By the way, if you like Zinnie and think she's a charming gal, I think you'll want to check out this coloring book ;)
