Yeah yeah, after ideas brainstorming from Week 01, I finally decided what I'm going to do!
I'm going to create a scene with a little girl was about to sleep, sitting on her bed & telling her dad about her worries, what she heard from the other kids said in school.
I want to make it a cute, sweet, adorable character animation..
Cast: Little Girl, Dad
After I got my ideas all set, I quickly go into Maya to create the layout with my characters (from modified norman).
I did sketch out my ideas, but too bad I left my sketches in school lab computer..
Anyway, here's my layout.
Haha, surprise~!! Batman?! Yeah, I changed it to Batman instead of 'Dad' because of 2 reasons:
1st, I want to make it looks like a scene from the Batman movies.
2nd, I don't have time to modify a 'Dad' norman..
Something about layout,
I try to make it more 'movie' approach instead of just one camera. It's good to make your piece that looks like it's a scene from movies.
At least I believe it make your work stand out among the dialogue animation, especially student's demoreel. Of course, animation quality is still the king.
Alright, this is actually the 1st layout I created, as you noticed the switch between First & Third camera is the only different.
It's actually not that bad because the 1st shot established everything clearly.. but it turned out too clear for me..
I prefer the top one because it doesn't show Batman at the 1st camera, when it cut to Second shot only people realize... it's Batman!
& they'll scream 'what the hell'.. & this is the respond I want!
Do you like the layout? heeh
So once the layout, cameras are all set, you're ready to animate it!!
But not so fast, before you really begin your animation, some brainstorm & planning should have done as well~
& I'll talk about this in my next post.
Have Fun~ =)
