I’m really happy with my outcome i didn’t think id be able to understand after effects and was worried id fall behind. but I’m really happy i decided to used after effects instead of stop motion i feel iv learnt a lot more by doing this.my final piece looks into the words : change , beat and intensitymy music inspired me and made me have an outcome of vains and a heart beating at different pulses and beats to the music, looking into specifically how the music effects the change of the animation.i looked into things that would change a heart rate to change in odd ways like exercise , drugs ect, as the music and the beats changed to quickly i more related it to the idea of drugs effecting the pupils of the eye and the different beats moving some pupils faster than others and also having some pupils at different sizes to also show the beat being louder, faster, slower and quieter.then my animation zooms into the pupil to show the idea of looking deeper into it, showing the vains glowing like a reactions happening this also changes to how the music develops.and last you see the heart but mainly i wanted the dots going at different paces in the vains going through the heart to show its effecting the heart and every things going a bit manic and there is a clear view of change.
images i tried adding in to my animation , these two didn’t quiet work they took too much attention away from certain aspects. also the face gave too much away i like the idea of my project having a bit more mystery until towards the end
my rough ideas and scribbles , timings act
research on how the heart looks and moves
this is my very rough draft of my project just using the most basic shapes to map out what I’m currently working on.
most of my work in this project is done either purely on photoshop and after effects or photography with the exception of a heart I’m having to draw up in charcoal then edited in photoshop.this is fantastic photo of my mums eye which I’m sure she will appreciate me putting up :P
setting up the stroke effect
this is animation i had to share with everyone! Salvador dali and walt disney , they started this animation in 1945 but has only been recently released in 2003
just some screen shots of different glows I’m going to have to decide from !the colour is not definite at the moment I’m just playing around with what works. this is going to be animated with the stroke effect or with write on , I’m going to see what works best for me these give the effect of growth.
