My stop motion animation is a short video based on envy. It is about a gang of frozen peas that hate living in the freezer. They want to be in the sunshine like the basket of oranges that sit by the window. Everyday they see the happy oranges living on the windowsill, bathed in light. They create a plan to push the oranges out of the window, and take their rightful place in the sun. I wanted to use food, because I was drawn to animating natural or pre-existing objects. The set is going to be my kitchen counter.
Here are some stills of the characters, the pea gang, and the oranges. Because the peas are so small, and are not very flexible, I might use green clay to simulate peas so I can manipulate their bodies to further illustrate their movements and struggles.
