ANIMATION: FISH #2

Here I have had a go at animating some fish and incorporating them into the scene to see how they would look. I used too many here and the animation and timings are off but I think they will work nicely when properly animated in the scene, as well as when the jellyfish is animated.

  1. Hey Becky - I left a comment on here earlier and it's vanished. This has happened before while I was going some first year OGRs a few days back... blogger ate my feedback :( Did you see a comment from me this morning, or is it another case of comment-gobbling by Blogger?!

  2. bloody blogger! okay - so all I said in my previous comment was... Your stuff is like looking into the window of a sweet shop! :) My advice was to liaise with Alan re. investigating depth of field techniques so you can isolate elements in your scene as required - you've got lots of lovely stuff happening, but I think you need to be careful that we always know where to look and what's important. You're doing it already, but you might need some exaggeration just to isolate things accordingly.

    The other observation (and forgive me if you're on this already - you likely are) is to ensure those jellyfish tentacles all move directionally, so when it's moving across the screen, we get a sense of the water around it dragging at the tentacles etc. Anyway - it's all these little touches that will sell your animation etc.

    I did have a thought in terms of storytelling... if you discover, as you put things together, that your story is struggling to convey everything you'd hoped through the visuals alone, there's something so illustrative about your story-world, that I wouldn't rule out an actual narrator - nothing epic, but if you think about children's picture books, where you have a couple of lines of text opposite a beautiful illustration, I think it wouldn't feel like an add-on or strange. Just something to think about as you start to bring your elements together.

  3. I see what you mean about depth of field, I’ll look into it! Also yes I’m already on those tentacles:) I’ve been thinking about the narration too, as I’ve been wanting it to be like a children’s book I was thinking in the end I could have a simple voice over to pull it all together if it hasn’t already, exactly like a line per scene/ something poem-y like you’d get in a picture book. Thanks for the feedback!

    1. Happy to help in terms of the script/tricky rhymes etc... if you want to put something together in terms of a sort of line-by-line/scene-by-scene breakdown - where you've outlined the action - we can work up something suitably charming in terms of the tone/language :)
