School Kids !!!!

This was the project that I was most looking forward to doing and what is this project you ask?

Well for this project our tutor Matt went to his local school and asked the pupils there to draw a character to a sound clip. After that everyone in our class was allocated a character and a sound clip 

I was given Ellice Parker's drawing and the sound clip that I was given was 'Whizz Palace'

TMNT Story Board

TMNT Story Board 

For the other half of this project we were allocated a page number of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle script. I was given page13

I wasn't looking forward to this part of the project because when it comes to working out camera angles and movements I'm not very confident but as I did my thumbnails I slowly got into it and started to enjoy it more 

A new year and new project

Story Boards 

For our first project we got to story board an advert.

For the advert I chose the Tetley Tea advert where Sydney is inside a package and is carted off around a warehouse and then is placed on a store shelf

Final project

For my final project last year we had to design two characters and create a world for them.

For the type of world I wanted, I chose a futuristic city scape where both humans and aliens co-exist.
Their culture is dominated by making and using music

For these inital idea's I wanted the characters to have them wearing headphones because their world is dominated by making and producing music.

Bird and Four Legged Character Design

This project I was most looking forward too because I got to design two characters as my favourite animals 

For the bird I chose a crow. Crows are depicted as mysterious and evil creatures but for my character I wanted him to be a kind character. when he is in front of 'people' he does not know he is quite shy but when he is with his friend he is quite cocky and up beat

Figurative Animation

For this project  we had to animate a walk cycle ,someone pushing or pulling and someone lifting or throwing a object. I found animating a walk cycle very difficult because I would get the arms moving correctly but not the legs or the other way around, but I wasn't going to let it defeat me. The pull animation was a little bit easier to animate but even so there were some things wrong with it. However for the lift I could only key frame it because I ran out of time.

Timing and Mechanics

This project was definitely not my best work as I found animating the car difficult. At the beginning of the project I thought animating the car would be quite easy but as I found it was difficult to get to grips with. After finishing the car animation I went onto the next piece of animation which was the flag and I found the flag much easier to animate. But when it came to the whip animation I again found that difficult and because if time issue's I could not correct the mistakes.
