Screen-shot-2013-11-12-at-6.37.09-PM

23/10/13
Meeting was cancelled with the clients at the London Transport Museum, due to the client was ill. However, the client did e-mailed us on what to improve on from what they saw of the animatic. The client stated that they wanted more negative war stuffs on the animation such as death. Which, we as a team disagree, because the animation was suppose to be more of a comedy animation rather than death and being negative. So, Fiona e-mailed backed that this will not work, due to animation should be of a comedy and should stick to the original story, which they choose originally.

They e-mailed backed and agreed with our views, the only changes was the soldiers uniform. Currently they are dressed in their military finery, but in reality they would need to be in khaki army uniform so we will need to change midway through the animatic.

24/10/13
Continue adding the keyframes for scene 10. Also, I added in some of the lip syncing for the scene as-well.

Today we did a acting class with Ioli on Thursday. She was full of ideas for the project and made it much better. New additions and changes included the first scene between Jack and Jimmy in which Jimmy prods Jack; Jack dropping into shot. This will help we when I start drawing down the first scene.

25/10/13
Continue adding more keyframes for scene 10 and change some of the keyframes from yesterdays acting class with Ioli.

LTM group project, week 1 Journal

Week 1 from 14/10/13-18/10/13 working on the ‘A long way to Tipperary’ story with Fiona’s group being one of the animators.

15/10/13
We met with the clients at the London Transport Museum and it went well. The client wanted a few minor changes from Fiona concept such as making the Leicester Square sign looked more like from the signs of the first World War I and add more first World War British soldiers into the animation, apart form that everything is fine.

17/10/13
Today, we’ve adjust and added more images into Fiona’s animatic what the client have asked to do with their actions from Tuesday.

Also, we’re discussed what scenes we are doing, I am doing the first scene which is 10 seconds; and the tenth and final scene, which is 12 seconds long. Overall, I have 22 seconds to animate in a 85 second animation.

Scene 1: Jimmy and Jack talk to each other – Jimmy’s eyes throbbing, spit from his mouth as he speaks, in slow motion he says ‘five shillings’ – REASSIGNED TO JONATHAN ( I figured that Jonathan may aswell animate all scenes with these two characters as he is already doing the last one – plus he wanted to do this one.)

Scene 10: Jack on stage singing. We see Jimmy “The Lips” scowling up at him, his lip and eye throbbing. Jack waves his arms wide for the final “It’s a long, long way to Tipperary but my heart’s right there!” A thought bubble appears from Jimmy’s head, saying “It’ll never catch on.” – JONATHAN

18/10/13
We’ve finished off the improved animatic, added more images into the animatic to show the client on Wednesday (23/10/13)

Also, I open up Flash, to try to get hangaround of Fiona’s drawing style. By using some of the animatic sketches as reference to her style, so I can match the style.

Over the weekend I will starting doing the keyframes for Scene 10.

Bye.
