Spin Motion App

Designer | Artist Simeon Brandner

Spin motion is an iPhone application that allows you to create and share stop-motions.
On shared animations one can participate in the realisation by adding an image at the end. It will create two types of animations, made either by a person or exquisite corpse.

The application is divided into three parts:
– The creation is made frame by frame. For each picture taken, a main line that crosses the screen trough its middle is a guide to align something on it. This line turns a few degrees after each shot to make a complete revolution.
– The visualisation is effected by turning the iPhone, making the animation play forward or backward. The baseline created by using the guide remains horizontal when the screen rotates.
– Modifying stop-motions allows you to rework animations and to share them.

I developed a lot of knowledge in the ergonomics and the design of a sharing interface on iPhone.
