The Long Sleep AKA Kundalini

By Jen Inman (2010)

Music by Tom McConnell

The Long Sleep aka Kundalini is one piece in a series of animations that I worked on for my senior project.  I started this piece in advanced animation class with Jim Duesing in the fall and then completed it in the spring with Suzie Silver’s guidance.  I used a combination of Maya and After Effects to model and animate, and then printed out each animation frame by frame with a black and white laser printer.  I then captured these 1700 pictures using a digital still camera and stop-motion software while being backlit on a light table.  This piece is about feeling as though you are ‘awake(ned)’ while actually remaining ‘asleep’.
