Winter Break? HELL NO. Vis Dev

Soooooooo. I've decided that there will be no winter break for meeee. I'm really anxious about my film and while my plan was to take a week break, i'm gonna do some visdev stuff PLUS refine my animatic. I'm really inspired this year and I really want to do an awesome film.

I've found a new inspiration! Edmund Dulac!!

I have no idea why it took me so long to love Dulac, but i really do.

I'm gonna spend the next few days trying to emulate this look and combine it with my style. :) Stay tunned! I'll be posting soon. :)

Film concepts.

So I've been messing around in photoshop trying to emulate a painted or at least illustrated feel. Early on I cam up with this:

Since then, I've sorta changed the entire concept of the film. It was much more...pleasant back then. hahaha. I really liked the way I did the floor and the trees overall though. I was going for a Klimt feel again.

Tonight, i came up with this:

I'm really liking it. I developed some actions that will do the coloring pretty much for me. hahaha. Again though, this is more bright and pleasant...which I guess I do want for the start of the film. Since i've actaully started boarding my film idea has gotten progressively darker and darker. lol. So I've gotta do some research and figure out how to evoke a "darker" feel. Not sure how I comminicated it in the animatic, but the film is supposed to go from midday to evening. Progressively getting darker and darker as they go through the woods.

I really liked my animatic, but it's a shade over time. I think part of that is the timing on the boards. I'm going to make another attempt some time this week (if I get time) to go at it again. Watching it, I know there's a lot that can be fixed/edited to be quicker.

My characters aren't final at all, so I'm gonna do a bunch of searching for that. I really want to get my film idea pretty stapled down before I leave for winter break. I'm not going to make the mistake of not working on my film over winter break. I haven't counted the backgrounds I have to do, but it really doesn't seemlike it's more than about 25. So I'm ok with that. I'm gonna make a point of doing MOST of the backgrounds over the break. I really dont want to make the same mistake over again. lol. Trying to avoid it! lol.

Ok well that's all. <3 my blog is lonely, so comment you meanie heads.

Soooo. This took me damn near forever. lol.

Unfortunatley, it came out to around 3 minutes, which DOES scare me, but i dont feel like much of it is too long. Just right actually, but I"m sure it'll take a while to actually decide that and see what can be cut.

So here it is...the story of a lute player, who enchanted by beauty is lead into a compromising position where he must overcome his fear and sacrifice his love.

So I realized that I haven't had a lot of animation on my blog. And I'm a goddamn animation student! hhahaha.

I really love animation this year. More so than any year. I"m finally getting it. I think it's thanks to my great teacher, Scott Wright! He's a very inspiring, encouraging and honest teacher. The most helpful animation teacher that I've ever had. Truly look up to him. :)

Here's my animation assignments. :

Falling Leaf Assignment. :)

Bouncing Ball!

Heavy Ball

Walk Cycle with arms

Frustration, a scene.

I think I'm really getting the hang of animation. :) I'm really excited to do my film. Like really excited. :)

Working on my animatic, so be prepared. :)
