For this week’s looking outwards, I chose to analyze my classmate Elena Deng’s post about the disney movie, Frozen. She chose to analyze a video which described the process of creating life-like snow in the movie. The animators explain that they used a method where they created very small particles of snow and assign them a random volume and size. After factoring velocities as well as collision variables for each of those particles, the grain of snow is then able to move. I found this to be particularly interesting, as I am a designer who has interest in motion graphics and animation, and seeing the behind-the-scenes making of this animation was very inspiring and creatively stimulating. The methods used in this project very applicable to a blend of interests in both physical products and also animation.
