I have been looking at ways to put together the animation. Alan suggested I look into adding more illustrations into the piece and cut the time to a minute So I chose six images that will play for 10 seconds each making a minute. Alan showed me the Furry Animal video : Its not the end of the world, and the Apache by Ned Wenlock & Rodney Selby video. The way in which both videos cut to the next segment inspired the way I wanted to cut my clip . After trying to sink the photos into an order that worked I then started looking at ways to sink the clips. The idea I liked as seen in the YouTube clip of the colour squares, this is the way that I imagined the clip working.
If you imagine each colour is an illustration, as the illustration is playing after ten seconds the clip rotates , but not in any direction but in contrast to the illustrations ,eg the blimp will turn up so the whale image will appear that you are going under the water to see it.
After working that out I went back to looking at the style of animating and Phil and Jordon, showed me some video’s that show a similar style and effects that I may consider adding to the animation. I also looked at the artist Richard Yot and the pieces that he has created.
The images are sketches of me working things out and some quick rendered test in maya for ideas.
