"Check Animate" - A Stop Motion Chess Animation

2064 ratings | 566720 views
This animation is my final project for my BA (Hons) degree course in Media and Cultural Studies at the University of the West of England, Bristol. The production is an animation of a real, historical game of chess played between Henry Atkins and Herbert Jacobs in London in 1915. The intention is to extend the theme of games/ gaming and satire used in previous productions to metaphorically represent society's changing relationship with linguistic variety. I created this project using Final Cut Pro 7 and Adobe After Effects CS6 editing software.

THAT'S CHECK... MATE *rocket shoots* *BOOM*
Zelda Fan (6 months ago)
As you can see in the end, the black king was checkmated because he was checked by the white knight and he was blocked in every direction by his own pieces and so it was a smothered checkmate

You did the smothered checkmate
Zelda Fan (8 months ago)
That's check, MATE
Zelda Fan (8 months ago)
Zelda Fan (8 months ago)
So they keep checking the black king and eventually he gets into checkmate
This is creepy
Zelda Fan (8 months ago)
Or you can say that checkmate is when the king is in check and there is no safe place to move and your king has no chess pieces that can capture the checking piece or block the check
Zelda Fan (8 months ago)
So yeah checkmate is when the king has no safe place to move and is already in check
Zelda Fan (8 months ago)
For the rook that captured the white queen if the rook got captured by the knight it would be checkmate
