Something I've been working on for the past 3 days - an animatic* for a short animation I've set myself to do. I've been meaning to get back into animation, and for this I started with someone else's characters since it's easier (characteristics and settings are already defined) - after this, who knows what I'll do next!
For this I picked Rigby and Mordecai from Regular Show. I thought I'd share the animatic with you, because...why not? - I know it looks scrappy in places and I need to fix a few things for the final animation (switch the pillow around in one shot since it's wrong, and study the bedroom for better layout - yeah I know the bed's wrong too), but I've pretty figured out the story and poses etc etc
As for sound - I don't know if there will be any, and I don't think I could do the voices myself.
Animation by Mat Kelman Rigby & Mordecai (c) JG Quintel
*animatic - a video made with storyboard images to create a rough work-in-progress view of the story, to help show pacing for animation and dialogue.
Hello again! Figure I should start uploading the rest of my projects from this semester, so here's my second one. c: It's frame by frame and I made it using Photoshop and After Effects! Like the first one, there isn't any sound. uHu
I'm gonna be posting updates for this AMV, because some people have asked about my process. Here's the first 1/4 of the AMV, storyboarded. I'm not gonna say much else about the content of the AMV, cause I want some of it to be a surprise.
The song is The Velvet Underground's 1967 classic, "I'll Be Your Mirror", covered by a band called Love Like Birds.
I've completed a couple more clips for my fake trailer project, but I'm unsure about uploading them because of spoilers and because if I upload every single animation clip before releasing the trailer... Well, it won't be all that interesting to watch by then XD
I still wanted to update my gallery with some material, so here you go! A few screenshots of what's to come. You'll get to see Dani swimming, Momo's secret power, zombies, junk all over the floor aaand big feet. Excited yet?! No? You'll see when I make it all flow with sexy music D: <
'Reincarnation' took me a year to complete and it was made as part of my year 12 Art Major Work.
I started with a canvas that had been painted and repainted about three times and seeing the layers through each knew painting, I thought I would use that concept to form a video.
For me this film represents my frustrations with not only art, but life and creativity in general. I feel like there is so much under teh surface that we don't see, but the layers are there and they shape and form the new artworks.
It also represents by obsession with perfection and how frustrated I get when I'm not able to create what is in my mind.
But it's open to interpretation. I didn't really know what I was doing when I made it, I just let loose and went with whatever was in my head that day.
