Animation Production: Week 5 Plan

I am looking at our production schedule and then at the length of our semester. I am reminded that even though we are only one month into the second year of university we are already 4 weeks in to a 10 week term that is almost half way. Taking a look back at what we have done in 4 weeks and it does not feel enough.

I really need to step my game up. I have been late and missed a few lectures in week 4 Through on Friday I did have lunch with Floella Benjamin and was invited to the opening of a new building at Exeter main campus. Off the record their campus is nice than ours. Hands down. We cannot compete. I made some very useful contact at the launch event but Floella has warned me that the industry will be easy.

 Assign Production Roles: 

  • develop script with for team to look over and edit.
  • look into sound resources, royalty free sound, making own own sounds.
  • Test water simulation, organic modelling (trees), rigging (character setup).
  • look into visual style.
  • put together some photos/ illustrations for a mood board.
  • look for inspiration outside of animation and photography too.
  • continue with character design for Hero, Old Woman and Tribesman/ Chief. 
  • keep an eye on Krissy's visual style but know that you have free roam.
  • look for inspiration outside of animation and photography too.

 Who want to be the Director?: 
I am asking Kirstianne and Jack who want to be the director. I am already producer and do not want to take on that task too. We will begin our rough storyboard on Monday afternoon/ Tuesday morning, as soon as the script has been finalised. I think Kirstianne showed the most interset in being the Director.
