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.(more…)
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.”(more…)
In my fourth workshop with Sara, we were asked to bring in some assets to work with but 8-10 layers. I decided to work with the context first of what I could bring. I decided to research online into some problems Britain is facing that could make this very relevant now at the moment.
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:
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.
Context & Research
For my first workshop of Year 2 with Sara our brief was to bring shapes, text, lines and colour to our workshop. I decided to bring in some abstract circles with bright colours and focus on a bright minimal theme. I was unsure on what I wanted to achieve but excited to learn some new techniques.
