I absolutely dig the utter crazyness going on in this music video. I so wanted to model my Form + Image brief after this video but obviously, I lack the necessary skills of awesomeness.

Form + Image

Well, I did initially attempted an interactive, but after a day of trying to teach myself scripting, I screamed really loudly into a pillow and went and did a linear instead. I will conquer you one day, script, just you wait.

Anyway, so I did some random stuff off a piece of music. The ending is rather abrupt though.

Extremely beautiful colour script and backgrounds. I am oozing with literal envy.

A beautifully animated contemporary dance piece. Such simple, basic lines. Love it.

Minor Project Concept 2

After having a chat with Kate about my laundry idea, I went home and thought about it for a couple of days and got stuck. The story didn’t go where I wanted it to so I threw the whole thing out and started over. So while enjoying a takeaway dinner at home, a Spork fell out of the bag. As I considered the inter-cutlery naughtyness that must have occurred to produce this bastardization, I thought it’d be cool to do a forbidden love story between a Fork and a Spoon as my minor. Thus, I started to sketch out potential character designs and, obviously, it ended up as my Agents + Behaviour brief response.

Olives were replaced to portray the eyes as I didn’t want the character to look too humanized.

FORK [Agents + Behaviour]

This was done to complement my minor project idea inklings, which I shall soon be posting up sketches of. Once I scan them in that is.

With this brief, I felt some improvement, but not as much as I’d like. After the 200 Drawings submission, I got some feedback in the form of Lindy :D and she advised me to draw guides and getting the keyframes in first to avoid my over-animating problem, which, I must say, was fantastic advise. It helped cut down my over-animating tendencies quite a bit, although somehow my character’s expressions don’t translate as well as they did when I drew them for my guides. Need to practice to really push through the character’s expressions or it’s all sort of lost in translation isn’t it? That’s what I found after watching my finished product anyway.

Note to self.
