1. Check the background (trees) not animated
2. The rabbit need color-needs to be visible
3. See rabbit jump down a hole
Shadow in middle of girl’s face need add
When the girl fall the leaf, she need bounce obviously.
The green plant needs more flexible movement. (Softer)
1. Water waves—— offset animation
Layering is particularly effective when there is a notable contrast in the shade or texture of two overlapping objects.
2. Camera moving
Girl need stand in when the boat appear
a. Need to see boat
b. Lower down to see move of the boat
1. Boat stops jumping
2. Eaten by whale
a. Whale’s mouth need faster
b. girl facial+ body reaction——much more dramatic
3. Check pixel on whale (too low)
4. Cut shot of whale in the sea on own
1. Inside whale need water flow in with boat
2. Need calm water (change shape and movement)
3. Water spout effect needed
1. Outside whale
Shot the sea——-push camera up with spout water
2. 1 to 2 second falling down (more falling and movement)
Background fans faster
3. The airplane flees in
Clouds less attracting
Blurred and softer
The color of clouds —-pale blue
The project allowed me to consider some elements I never thought of before. Firstly, I keep learning new technique (especially motion-control) and gain more experience. Secondly, I should do production test for the main set of character(head rotations and Blink). In my blog, I will show some resources and tutorials. According to tutorials I know how to combine the puppet tool and Null objects to make a simple bone system for 2D puppets using After Effects .Thirdly, I must integrate my idea with practice and consider some risks. I have been using a blog not only record good resources but also keep tracking current production progress.
The style looks like the paper’s cutting works, using After Effect. I did some tests of real color paper and find that it is hard to control in post production of computer-generated.So, I will do all the working in computer.Actually, I like 3D background which has the unique feeling of space. The final project.I intended to mix 2D and 3D. I did some molding work in Cinema 4D and my character is 2D. The effect of mixing is not good enough and donot like paper’s cutting which looks strange. I tried many times and waste lots of time which makes me giving up. I decided to using 2D piture and 3D layers in After Effects,then I redesigned my last scene and it looks pretty good.
Moreover, I keep learning new technique every step and gain more experience. I will show some resources and tutorials in my blog which broaden my vision. In addition, I must integrate my idea with practice and consider some changes. I keep rethink my work and making appropriate adjustments.
My project is basic on 2D animation. I hope my work looks like stop motion animation. I will do my level best to the face of character. It is really rough process of a character head. I used lots of time to learn 3D layers, distortion mesh and expressions in After Effects. It is an challenge to learn how to write programs and input expression in AE.
