Again i like the colours used in these backgrounds they really create an atmosphere for the films. I like the contrast of the red and blue in the first image.
Two! Animation Technology, I found the lectures interesting as i didn't realise how far back you could see the influences for the computer and looking at the development of the technology. For this we will have to produce an essay!! O.O to look at the history of a certain technology that assists animation and plans for it in the future.
Three! Post Production, found this lecture amusing and learnt how sound and voice actors are used in animation. For next week we have to edit a sound clip in Sound Booth so that the dialogue that is being said flows correctly. This will be useful as i haven't used the software in a while so will refresh my memory of how to use it.
Four! Animation Development, Where we will have to think of our own ideas and make a design bible and pitch the idea to someone from the industry. we will also have to make a storyboard and animatic so alot of work!! but im excited to do it as i really enjoy working on things that are my own idea and hopefully will think of an idea which will get me really excited to work on so i will produce better work and be more confident when it comes to the pitch =)
Finally! Dissertation Proposal, I feel pretty confident with this as i know my argument already and i have enjoyed researching the topic so far. My topic is: Why do audiences empathize or relate more to non-human creatures or caricatured humans more than realistic looking humans.
So it is going to be a busy term! but hopefully i can be a lot more organized and not stay on the beach too much O=)
