We started a new project called Sound Perspective where we had to choose from three sounds and objects from the two lists in the handbook. The main idea I’ve come up with is an old Colonel who has many trophy stuffed animals from hunting in his youth. They end up coming to life, and he ‘accidentally’ kills himself.
The next day we did a sound workshop, so went to a studio where we could record sound for the opening of Pixar (with the lamp jumping on the i) then got to edit it on the computer to fit with the animation. We also discussed different sounds used in movies like diagetic, non diagetic, ambiant etc.
The last day of the week, everyone in the class had critique. All of us brought in our mounted story boards from the Christmas project. we looked at how well they were presented and the originality, then presented the best three to the class and discuss why we chose them.
Next, everyone watched our unfinished shoelaces animation and thought that it wasn’t too bad, though it needed improvements like adding sound and changing the green screen into the cafeteria background.
We need to add one more hand-drawn animation which isn’t finished yet, I’ve added mine to the computer and looks quite smooth surprisingly. I thought it wouldn’t have been good enough because it might have been jumpy with the walking cycle.
The last thing we did was peer assessment. We all brought in our portfolios for a random person to look at and see what we had missing, what was weak (mine being a lack of researched artists and needing to critique my work more), and what was good (mine being a full sketchbook and a very detailed analysis of the artists I have researched).
