FINAL ANIMATION MMc402 - NATHAN WILSON

WE WERE ASKED TO CREATE AN ANIMATION

ASDFMOVIE

SO I TOOK TO YOUTUBE TO 'RESEARCH'

ANNOYING ORANGE

I RESEARCHED BY WATCHING VIDEOS FROM THE 'ANIMATION' CATEGORY ON YOUTUBE. I FOUND THIS HELPFUL AS IT GAVE ME ACCESS TO DIFFERENT TYPES OF ANIMATION, ALLOWING ME TO PICK OUT IDEAS AND TECHNIQUES TO USE WHEN IT CAME TO CREATING MY OWN ANIMATION.

ANIMATOR VS ANIMATION

AFTER A WHILE, I BEGAN TO DRIFT TOWARDS THE WEIRD SIDE OF YOUTUBE AND STUMBLED ACROSS AN OLD VIDEO I HAD SEEN BEFORE TITLED 'LEMME SMASH'. AFTER WATCHING IT, I DECIDED ON USING THIS AS MY IDEA, AND CREATING AN ANIMATED VERSION OF THE VIDEO.

LEMME SMASH

I DECIDED ON CREATING MY OWN ARTWORK USING ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR, WITH A FLAT DESIGN FEEL, WITHOUT ANY INSPIRATION TAKEN FROM ANYWHERE ELSE. I CREATED THE MAJORITY OF THE ARTWORK USING SIMPLE LINES AND SHAPES, THEN ADDING COLOUR AND SLIGHT DETAILS.

ARTWORK:

ANIMATING:

FOR THE ANIMATION, I DECIDED TO TRIAL OUT A FEW DIFFERENT PROGRAMS BEFORE DECIDING ON ONE. FIRST OF ALL I TRIED OUT A FEW TECHNIQUES SUCH AS THE BONE TOOL WITHIN ADOBE ANIMATE (FLASH) BUT FOUND THIS DIFFICULT TO GET ALONG WITH AND MOVED ON TO ADOBE AFTER AFFECTS.

I MANAGED TO GET ALONG WITH AFTER AFFECTS, SO DECIDED TO USE THIS SOFTWARE TO CREATE MY FINAL ANIMATION. I TOOK MY ARTWORK AND CHARACTERS, AND BROUGHT THEM TO LIFE USING TECHNIQUES SUCH AS MOTION BLUR AND WIGGLERAMA.

DURING THE CREATION STAGE OF THE ANIMATION, I ATTEMPTED TO REPLICATE THE VIDEO AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE INSTEAD OF PUTTING MY OWN SPIN ON IT, SO THAT IT MADE SENSE WHEN USING THE AUDIO FROM THE ORIGINAL VIDEO.
