I finally got my animation showreel done!
I included the animations that I did with my friend Jordan which were mainly Stop-motion ones.
I’m actually really happy with it. I originally intended to make it using Windows Live Movie Maker, but I need to use iMovie because it was making me angry.
I then made the entire soundtrack in GarageBand.
I really just put a repetitive sound in first and then hit random keys repeatedly- it sounds pretty good to me. I actually think it’s better than all my other attempts for the crystal world project.
I got the cartoon falling sound from Freesound.org. (Link: https://www.freesound.org/people/CGEffex/sounds/89546/)

I’ve finally gotten around to it.
I’m just going to use Windows Live Maker, because iMovie just annoys me at the minute.
I’ll need to plan out which animations, would flow best together, so that to looks good- then there’s the music.
I might make it in GarageBand, or just use something off my Walkman.
