For our final project for our Motion Graphics class, we were to create a reel of the projects we had completed over the course of the semester
This was the part of the project that animated our storyboard and setup timing for the story. My part of the group was to draw out the storyboards and characters into layers so they could be arranged. This final render fixed sound and continuity issues.
My fellow classmate Cody Streeter created an animatic that could potentially be a commercial for dog food. The rotoscoping at the beginning demonstrates great movement and energy in the video. The shot of the dog crossing the stage has sound to represent it’s collar moving but doesn’t include the rest of the dog being drawn, but it is still communicated that he is crossing to the left side of the frame. Then there is a slightly tilted frame of the dog going to the dog food instead of the steak. When first watching this I didn’t register what was happening exactly. The communication that the dog food was better than the steak didn’t click to me. But maybe this could be changed by adding color to the food and food bowl and making the meat look more dull and grey. It ends a little suddenly, which could be changed by maybe a close up of the dog eating the food or looking very happy with his owner at the end. Or a picture of the food packaging could be added so people could recognize it.
For this project we had a client, University Police who gave us the prompt to create informative quick videos that are appealing to students on campus. We went with a youthful clean theme with a color scheme and set font to bring about a cohesive video. Each person in the class was to create a video about each issue. Mine was about leaving clothes in the washer and driers in the laundry room for hours too long
At the midpoint, I don’t have sound but have created movement for the whale. I have also been drawing different poses for the person to be in at the end in the tub. Recently added a transitional morph of a fish halfway
After the review of this storyboard, I decided to reverse it, making a whale form into a human. A human turning into a whale communicates a different message that the person is becoming fat. Also I decided not to have the human growing up in the tub. Before I wanted to have a baby grow up into an adult and then morph into an orca
