I’ve spent today editing the sound and music to the footage.. I’ve kept some of the background sound to add to certain shots but for the most part I just want the music in the background. I played aorund with adding sound effects to the spirits but it simply was too cheesy or didnt fit… and I dont think it is required.
Today ive spent creating the opening titles and credits… I think it fits in with the theme and is reflective of the spirits
Here is a capture of the very final shot before I will cut to the credits. 01/05/2014
I’ve now finished animating the butterflies and I love the contrast of dark with the high glow… It took a while to roto and get the scaling correct with the blur to make it look ‘real’.
Today I am playing around with effects to put on the creatures. Initially I wanted them to be solid, then to look like doodles, now i’ve decided this combination of effects gives them a more ghostly feel. Whilst they are not meant to be ghosts per say… after showing it to some ppl they expected them to be more spiritual looking and I feel this works well in contrast with the black outlines.
Ive gone for a butterfly creature for the night scene to emphasise they are not evil and are just more like a fantasy creature.. Ive spent a lot of time rotoing the scene and creating reflections in the window etc that match the movement…and pleased with the results
Here is the text and font ive created for the title and credits and also perhaps on the dvd cover etc. I’ve taken inspiration from tim burton and used black doodle style which is the theme ive been going with. 25/04/2014
