This week on Animation Monday, on a Monday this time! I wanted to feature a video series on the YouTube channel Hombre_McSteez, and it’s something you should check out! The series is called Aug(De)Mented Reality by Marty Cooper, and it’s a unique animation technique involving traditional animation cels and a iPhone with a stop-motion app. The first video came out in May 2014 and has over four million views!
The second video called Aug(De)Mented Reality 2 came out in November 2014, and it shows you how he mostly creates his drawings. With white out, paint pens, transparent sheets, and a Sharpie. The video has over 500,000 views!
And now, Aug(De)Mented Reality 3 is now out! And it even shows you more behind the scenes. This is almost like drawing for a cartoon series. You draw one frame, shoot it, then draw another frame, and shoot it, and so on. This video even has Adam Savage from Mythbusters being hit by a cartoon pool ball! Enjoy!
And you want behind the scenes, right? Then enjoy this video from the Tested YouTube channel! Wonderful stuff! Marty is a talented animator!
