"Chalk Skate" - Personal Project

I wanted to make a completely in-camera animation with a chalk-drawn skateboard beneath my feet. With my phone camera, a tub of chalk, and some backbreaking work, I traced around 100 unique chalk skateboards to create this stop motion piece. 

 

I loved that this project got me away from the computer and out into the world. I wanted to tell a story with all of the different ground textures and pieces of sound design. I hope you enjoy!

Since it never rains in LA, the chalk art stuck around for a little while. I was happy to get some comments from people who saw the boards in real life and then later found the video.
