for the animation i used after effects to make the interface animated but before that I exported each part of my interface out of photoshop and into after effects. unfortunately I couldn’t make the lap number and mph to have the look i wanted due to after effect limitations but I feel it turned out alright, I added the comparison to what it should look like above the video.
It is base of a real life event that changed my day the other week, Basically it starts of with someone trying to make a sandwich then realises there isn’t any bread substance to put it in (as they discover the new thin bagel later (buy it now btw)) so the character panics, as I did, runs upstairs, swings open his brother’s door. He grabs him, pulls him into the main character’s room. He sits him down on a chair, puts a high tech hat on him that looks like a sieve while he is questioning what he is doing. Moments later the brother gets sucked into the sieve hat machine which is connected to the main character’s computer and is sucked into the internet (At this point there is a big flash when this happens). The main guy is trying to tell his brother to get him bread for a sandwich, as the brother is freaking out (The internet is a dark setting with website pages floating around him). A few seconds later the brother calms down, then looks through the internet, through internet memes and websites, until he finds himself at the Warburton’s website. He sees the thin bagel branding on the site and the main character says it looks good and tells him to grab that or something. The machine starts up, there is a flash, then the end scene is them at a table having a toasted bagel whilst the brother is rocking back and forth next to him.
This is the basic concept for my animation. I have an idea for the type of animation and such. But this is it so far and there will be hints to Bolton and that area in the internet when the character goes in and also when in the characters house.
Learning the basics of after effects my using movement to add a depth to the ship flying through space.
This is a test r2d2 animation.
Kinetic Typography comes in different shapes and forms whether its in a movie or advert this type of animation can come in many shapes and forms so it has a broad range of different ways to display you message or scene. I’m movies its mainly used for the intro for the movies show the actors/directors names or used in the end credits as its a good way of showing off the movie, but in adverts its mainly used through out the video to show off the product in a refreshing and different way .
2. Stop Frame (stop motion)
Stop frame animation or stop motion what ever you call it has been used throughout the media spectrum such as movies, tv shows and adverts. Movies like the nightmare before christmas / fantastic mr fox, tv shows like Wallace and Gromit / shawn the sheep and adverts like the target girl dreaming ad. These types of animation set apart from the norm as the long time to create the frame by frame animation is a tedious process to make and isn’t done as much as.
3. Motion Graphics
Motion Graphic animation are all made using digital footage/ animation soft wear on a computer as it is made by electronic media. this uses a frame by frame then computers calculate the changes them making the illusion of motion. This is used a lot in media mainly in advertisements and normal use if you click the link above you, you will see different types of motion graphic. also this type of animation is used in credit scenes at the end of movies as its a cleaver eye catching way of praising the actors/actress’ and directors ect work in the film.
