This project is similar to the fashion project, this project is only two weeks long. Were we had to think about a character receiving a box, taking something out of the box, reacting to it through facial expression and then passing the box.
I started of by filming someone acting by picking up a box reacting what the present I picked up through facial expression and then passing the box.
Then I started off by drawing my thumbnails/storyboard down, this was basic drawn down due to I didn’t know the style and the design of my character will look like. I scanned in the thumbnails anyway to do an animatic.
Then I went into Flash, to do another animatic, this time for timing reasons and get the timing right.
Then I figured out what the character will look like, I based the character similar to the lost boys from “Peter Pan” (1953) and Bloodhound Gang music video “The Bad Touch”.
Then what the character will look like, I went back into Flash to do the keyframes and create the animation as-well. Got some feedback, but it was more of styling rather than the keyframes which was the main problems and also adding a neck to the character.
After I got the styling right from the feedback and added a neck to the character, I completed the animation with the remaining in-between frames to completed the animation.
Personally, I enjoyed this project much more than the last fews projects overall.
