Stopmotion, attempt 2!

Today, me and Matt scouler re-shot the stopmotion/pixelation section of our film. After all the footage was corrupted last month when we had finnished animating we had to start all over again.

this time we know what we were doing but it still took a long time to get the the animating stage. We had similar computer promblems that wouldn't let us save images to the hard drive and a cameras that wouldnt be detected on the pc. After 4 hours off setting up we animated the sections very quickly and easily. It took us about 45min to and hour to animate the whole thing.
Its was a shame we lost the first attempt but it ment when we came to re shoot it we were more confident with the technique and have a really nice section of animation.

It still need a bit of tidying up and a few frames removed but here is our animated hand.

Market Scene: earth quake

This week i am continuing to work of the market scene. I am animating the characters falling over in flash. Then I will take the tiffs into efter effects and shake the scene back and forth adding motion blur to create the earth quake effect. On the thursday I hope to reamnimate the stop motion sections of the film. I will then be able to move on to animating the next flash sections.

Run cycle

This shot is for when my main character runs from the market back home. It has been animated in flash and then brought into tvp to be coloured. Im really please with the effect ifve got, it matched the wood cut look i wanted and will look great against my backgrounds.

Walk to market

This is the first finished section of animation, it is not yet colouer but it has been fully cleaned up.
It is a shot of the woman jumping out the frame and taking her crops of market.
Its been done in flash and have taken me about a week.

Land and Power: Pre Vis

Below is the pre vis. Its the current animatic with all the animation tests done to date cut in ontop. It gives a clearer idea of the style of the film. it also included a rough version of the music that is being composed by a musician at Oxfam for the film
