Seriosly... last post

This is my other blog as i was not sure at the time to split the flux 2 and design specialism blog in to separate one, so i made one for each, well here is my other blog link:

I tried uploading this link to gadgets but it didn't work for some reason.

My final post on this blog

This is the finished thing, with beams to add depth and reflections, very proud of it and it's great to see how far I've come since starting the brief, however i still have much more to learn and i'm looking forward to learning it.

It somehow took all day, but it's finished

This is my final idea, i rotoscoped a friend in separately performing different actions such as pointing reading and generally moving around. I make the people sky arts brand colour to make it more interesting and apart from that the people really stand out so i think it works well. I't is still a little rough around the edges, this is because i didn't have access to green screen or High Definition camera equipment due to the fact we haven't had inductions to them yet. This made using the rotobrush quite hard for the simple reason it was selecting pretty much everything around the person such as walls and carpet. This idea however is much more exciting and engaging than my previous "stage" idea which didn't have enough going on to engage the viewer. Overall i feel this has really pushed me to my limits for now, there were times i wanted to give up on using the rotobrush for the reasons previously mention but i persevered and got a great outcome in the end and this is what i believe animation is all about, persevering, taking it one step at a time so you will get the outcome you really want. The setting is a local gallery, instead of filming i took various snap shots of different rooms and animated them in such a way that mimicked being filmed. As i have a little more time on my hands i will hopefully add more to this animation to give it more depth, i also want to line up the animations at the start to change in time with the music.

Final idea concept moving

This is sort of what i want to film like, but not as fast, i would put rotoscoped people in but i have not filmed anyone on green screen yet.


Everything is coming togeather

My idea is to film a Art gallery and use my volunteers that have been filmed properly on green-screen so that i can make them look rotoscoped, i also plan to put the sky arts as a painting in the gallery but actually  rotoscope around that and then have it transitioning into the actual logo then having it pan forward slightly then everything else fading to black so you can only see the logo.

It was all going so well

I finally figured out a way to put in silhouette style rotoscoped like people, and for some reason at the end it went wrong, it would really help me to film this on green screen with a good camera, so that is what i am going to do next. Instead of painstakingly drawing out each frame i decided it would be fare simpler and far more accurate to first film my person, then use the rotoscope tool the get rid of everything i didn't want then use a fill effect to fill the person in, it think this is incredibly effective but i need to figure out how to put a outline on the person to still make it relevant.
All i need to do now is shoot my scene, shoot someone in green-screen and put the two together.

Filming and rotoscoping

A couple of days ago i decided to start testing, so i filmed a some people walking around and also a kind volunteer no names mentioned COUGH*Sophie Gibson*COUGH and then rotoscoped a little over the top.
