Useful tutorial for puppet tool which is how I will be animating my creatures.
Filmed in the cafe today and it was moderately successful. Unfortunately anyone who was going to help me, couldn’t. Had to do all the set up myself but due to time constraints in the cafe itself, decided best not to set up my own lighting. This had caused a few lighting problems but was unavoidable. I did forget sometimes to change the white balance in certain lights as ami looks green in some of the closeups. This should be fine though as eventually I will be rotocsoping over her and most of the video will be an animation.
Met up with my tutor on the 9th Novemvber 2013 discussed how far I had got with the project and what to put in my diary. As he is not a professor in the areas I would need advice from to improve my project, I Will organise a meeting with my video technology tutor to discuss the video itself and my compositing tutor for early next year to discuss the after effects.
I asked what more things I needed to include in my diary and was told to just continue adding things when and where
Booked in with the cafe and ami to film on the 18th of November, stills to follow and will update then.
As I wanted my short to be located initially in a cafe, I have been ringing around local cafe’s to see if they were willing to let me film there. I had no luck however Ami, the actress in my film, coincidentally works in a cafe and The Press Room in Surbiton has kindly said that I could film there in the evenings when I need to, so have organised it for a couple of weeks time as I am busy with other projects at the moment.
