All about the art of storytelling. Our first assignment was to create an animatic for Aesop's fable "Maimou and the Dolphin."
First we had to create a storytelling image (a single image that encompassed the action of story..kind of like a teaser to the story i guess)
A whole bunch of breakdowns and messy lessons later, out came the final animatic, my first animatic! (Certainly looks like a first animatic)
Our next assignment was a series of animatics to teach us "deep staging." Here's one about a raven:
And our final assignment, about one [noun] that wants another [noun]'s food. We first pitched 3 ideas via storytelling images, and chose in class which story to go with
I ended up going with the one about the dinosaur.
We did a layout of the space where it takes place:
And then the final animatic!
Computer Animation I
Assignment numero uno: ye olde ball bounce, featuring one real ball and one "alive" ball.
Assignment numero dos: Primitive Theater (a lot of people wonder how i thought of this...because it is a little strange. Basically, when thinking of primitive theater and "simple characters," I figured that such a character had a simple, disassemble-able body, like a toy. Hence, little Manny the construction worker misplaced his eyes.)
Semester two coming soon!
Final Assignment: Simple Poly. Design a bi-ped character and make him walk/jump turn.
Here were my ideas:
Here's my fella:
And here he is in action!
Annnnnnd finally: a lip sync from Traditional Animation II. Didn't turn out quite like I wanted but, still pretty happy with it
