NEW! “MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU” Fan-Based Star Wars animation by Student Lewis

A few weeks ago, Sparky Ink Studio Student; Lewis began creating a Fun and Amazing Fan-based Star Wars Stop-motion animation.  The animation was created using Lego MiniFigs (found under the bed) and the snowmen were created in super brill detail by support Holly.  The Story evolved into a small adventure where Luke Skywalker and his team of Snowmen (some Zombie) capture The Dark Lord Darth Vader – Luke’s dad.  The snowmen mean business.

Lewis worked with Studio Digital Editor Josh to create some create terrific Visual Special effects to show Darth Vader’s demise and create some wintry scenes.  Lewis turned Luke Skywalker into a bit of a rapper with the famous line “You are NOT my father!”  

This is Lewis’ first animation with the Studio so we hope you enjoy it.  Check it out here “STAR WARS – DAWN OF THE ZOMBIE SNOWMEN”  Please like and Subscribe on our youtube channel.  Thank you for your support.

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!

Bad Dog? Mini Claymation by David Lewis

Video

Earlier in the spring of 2017, Sparky Ink Studio was invited over to Derbyshire Autism Services Group Youth Club in Chesterfield to present a Crazy Taster session.  We had a fab time.

One of the young people there David Lewis made this little claymation and used the base colour white clay to great effect.  The assets for this mini Claymation were created on the evening and filmed straight after.  David had some animation experience before hand.  He was brilliant at working with the clay figures and filming to create a very smooth animation in such a small length of time.  Well done to David!bad dog

Bad Dog? This story is about a man who takes his dog for a walk.  The dog sees something and pulls away from the man pulling the man over when the lead snaps.  See what happens next…  The question is…Is this a Bad Dog?  Enjoy.  Please like and subscribe on our YouTube Channel.  Thank you for watching.
