Rise and Shine: cut so far

Here is how our film is looking:

Red or Dead: Desert Test

This test mixes some sand animation with the stratacut animation to give a possible look to what out desert scene may look like. i think the sky is a bit confusing but i still like the patterns

Red of Dead: Mirrored Plants

This is a compilation of tests i did using footage I took of plants and trees up at Enys Garden in Penryn. I have mirrored them in aftereffects, I think the coliderscope like patterns look great and will work as backdrops for the diffrent worlds.

Red or Dead: strata-cut

here is the next animation technique we have been trying, me and matt rolled up a load of plastercine and then sliced it and photographed it each slice.
I then mirrored it in aftereffects to create these effects, these will possibly be used as the sky for the desert scene some how!

SuziePea: versions 2 and 3

here is the scene ive been animating for suzie pea over the last few weeks, i had a few issues getting the face of the character right and animating the crawl on to the bed

 smaller face and crawl changed from slide onto the bed:

 smaller face again,crawl re animated with lower bum: 

Red or Dead: More forest tests

here's one more short test i did for red or dead, the cut of Josie ont he bike will be swapped for the footage in the final film
