Abstract

This article presented an investigation of and reflection on the techniques and production processes used to transform a traditional Venda folktale, , from embroideries into a digitally animated film. The article was guided by a method derived from a practice-based research model for creative production which describes ways in which creative outputs can be regarded as a viable research option. The method comprised the documentation of and reflection on the project in three phases, namely pre-production, production and post-production. The Tambani embroidery project is a community outreach initiative launched by Ina le Roux. is the collective noun for traditional Venda folklore. In this article, we argued that computer animation techniques could be implemented successfully in the digital transformation of a Venda folktale that was originally part of an oral tradition. We demonstrated this argument by means of Christiaan van der Westhuizen's transformation of folktale into a computer animation format.


Hierdie artikel bied 'n ondersoek na en refleksie op die tegnieke en die produksieprosesse wat gebruik is in die omskakeling van 'n tradisionele -Venda-volksverhaal, , vanaf borduurwerk in 'n digitale animasiefilm. Die artikel word gerig deur 'n metode wat afgelei is uit 'n praktykgebaseerde navorsingsmodel vir skeppende uitsette. Hierdie navorsingsmodel omskryf wyses waarvolgens skeppende uitsette as geldige navorsingsopsies gereken kan word. Die metode bestaan uit die dokumentering van en refleksie ten opsigte van die projek in drie fases, naamlik pre-produksie, produksie en post-produksie. Die Tambani-borduurwerkprojek is 'n gemeenskapsuitreikingsinisiatief wat deur Ina le Roux van stapel laat loop is. is die versamelwoord vir tradisionele Vendavolksverhale. In hierdie artikel argumenteer ons dat rekenaaranimasietegnieke wel suksesvol geïmplementeer word in die digitale omskakeling van 'n Venda-volksverhaal wat oorspronklik uit 'n mondelinge tradisie stam. Ons demonstreer hierdie argument aan die hand van Christiaan van der Westhuizen se omskakeling van in 'n rekenaaranimasie.
