The beginnnings of the roto, I am mainly going to focus on creating black outline – comic style effects. I decided to use photoshop, however, I am also going to have a go with illustrator. 15/12/13
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
