The Essex (acid) Test

Had a busy week of redrawing the new Rough Animatic for the Final Project which was shown on two last Thursday (6/2/14), with one of the scenes was removed and replaced with a new scene.

After this I showed this off to a few people if it works better. Which includes showing this to Martyn Jones, who is an animator who taught us a 2D animation program call CelAction2D from two last Thursday and Friday (6/2/14 and 7/2/14), which his form Essex, will be the acid test. With his reaction, the animatic works as he was laughing at the right scenes when needed.

This animatic was a little bit clean up version from last Tuesday.

Also, last Friday (14/2/14) we had animator Philip Vallentin come in to look at our animatics. With my animatic it needed to be tighten up in places and also add some more sounds effects when needed. And below, there is a much more clean up version of my animatic so far from Sunday Evening (16/2/14).



Got some bad news

Last week, we showed off our animatics to Shelly Page, which below was a little bit of a much cleaner version of the animatic in places and added one more establish shot to the animation.

Feedback it was funny with a few people laughing at it. But, sadly a few criticism, which included too many talking heads, too many lip-syncing to do in the time, there was also a criticism that the animation lived its live after the first scene, which I disagree with.

And the big thing that was removed I have to do due to many criticisms and opinions that the West Hammus scene has been too cut, due to too many characters to animate and possibly a very limit minded jokes that the audience won’t understand with, unless you are a West Ham fan. Anyway we have rewritten (cut and chop) a new script with an old scene from the previous script we have placed in and used that to re-draw the animatic. New animatic in the next post.
