Showreel with Sara (Workshop 6 Y2)

Today was my final workshop with Sara. We were working on a showreel to showcase all the work that we have done in the workshops. I was really excited for this as I am really proud of my work from this year and the skills I have gained so it will be nice to visualise my work again after not seeing it from the workshop. One thing I wanted to do for the showreel was to include my branding in some way as my colours are dark grey and yellow, I decided to use this colour scheme and my logo in the corner at the start and end of the video. I used the same transition to keep it consistent and on each new clip had a piece of text to display what workshop this was from. I also labelled when I had added extra work to make it clear. I am very happy with the final outcome and how everything fits together. It makes me very proud of the skills and how far I have come on After Effects this year. Below shows the final outcome.


Football Data with Sara (Workshop 5 Y2)

In my workshop with Sara our reference was to focus on data and animating this in a short 10 second animation. We started off by choosing our phrase based on the data from the football museum. I choose the following:

“Women were already playing football before the war. The first recorded home international match between England and Scotland took place in Edinburgh in 1881. / The British Ladies Football Club was founded in 1895.”


Drawing Materials with Sara (Workshop 3 Y2)

In my third workshop with Sara we were asked to bring in a piece of drawing, I then traced over this another two times. I choose to draw based on the programme I have been watching at the time – Dynasties featuring David Attenborough. The episode focused on penguins, inspired by this I drew a fun cartoon style penguin. I wanted to create something playful and that had meaning that would allow me to be interested in the workshop, I felt like this would communicate what I wanted to achieve as it will be relevant to what I have been watching and my interests.

The drawings I brought to the workshop:


Rotoscoping with Sara (Workshop 2 Y2)

Context & Research
For my second workshop with Sara, we were introduced to the idea of Rotoscoping. Before the workshop, we were asked to bring in a piece of footage that could be looped for one second.

Rotoscoping – an animation technique that animators use to trace over motion picture footage, frame by frame, to produce realistic action. Originally, animators projected photographed live-action movie images onto a glass panel and traced over the image.
