Style Ideas

These are screenshots from Animations I whose style stood out to me. I especially like these styles because the characters are reflective of their enviroments, For example in the top image in the bottom right hand side is a inmate in a prison animation, His face is modelled more angular and sharp to reflect his harsh enviroment.

Project Diary.2

6th October 2015 

second group tutorial we have discussed are idea some more and narrowed are idea down a bit more we nearly have it but needs some more working on till we have a strong foundation

Alan has pointed  us in some directions of how to be ambiguous with are animation and how we need to think about the edit a lot more and we need to think about the edit i suggested one way to show the passing off people leaving and the factory getting more lonely could be done through the sound track as if we slowly worked out the sound of people to then transition more and more into machines to show the factory emptying.

Project diary

  1. 29th September 2015  

     We had are first group tutorial in this tutorial we discussed are foundations for are animation this consisted on us all pitching are story ideas and having a brief discussion about what we pictured are animation to be

    The main floor in this was the factor we didn’t have a definitive ending yet and need to work out one Alan suggested that we came up with some edits as that is the key to getting are animation and are using are edit to tell are story and that we need to be ambiguous to be animation so we have gone off and started to collate rough edits together for are project.

Possible Story Idea

  1. Possible story idea that’s been circling in my mind for a couple of days now

    We have a factory worker who is working  day in day out without talking to any one, each day he gets up and goes to work and lives as a total social recluse. We show this from jump shots of his empty flat which is bare to him in the factory not getting involved as the workers around him socialize. It gets to the point where no one even knows he’s there. This sort of loneliness is both social and mental, he retracts so much from society  that he decided to try commit suicide, we show this by showing a silhouette of a rope chair  cliché. But it doesn’t work but the next day he goes to work as if nothing’s happened but todays a different day today someone notice’s him and ask’s him how he is and this leaves him felling happy and part of society again this is a really early idea and has some very dark theme, but I think using the Kushov effect would make it work and to play on the idea that you can feel lonely even when surrounded by people I am going think of some more ideas but this is the first one that has strongly stuck in my brain  and may be interesting if done right, it all needs a lot more fleshing out and will need to be story bared to see if it works out may be an interesting take on are selected cards.

Animation Idea

The aim of this sketch was not to be refined but convey a possible idea for our animation.
