Student Work: Tynesha Foreman’s ANT M.D.

Tynesha Foreman just completed ANT M.D., a stop motion animation short.


She created this using Dragon Frame, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere, and Adobe Audition. She used a ton of materials to create her puppets but its mainly constructed of  wood, aluminum wire, nuts/bolts, silicone, velcro, sculpey. ( and according to Tynesha, there is also some blood, sweat, tears, and elbow grease in there).

Tynesha is also an AMP Mentor. Take a look at some of her other work on her AMP profile!
