Showreel Complete

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/)

Bob The Ball

My friend Jordan and I quite enjoy doing stop-motion and we decided to make series of videos.

This is Bob.

He was the first full animation that we made out of modelling clay.

We quickly discovered that stop-motion requires patience and consistency.

It was also horrible trying to keep my DSLR focused. I had the auto-focus on and as the ball -Bob- moved along the screen the camera started zooming out to keep focused on Bob rather than the scene, so it forced me to actually read the manual and find out how to turn off the auto-focus.

At the end I used Photoshop to make Bob disappear into his own grave, which I had never tried before, and actually thought turned out rather well.
