What is going on?
Actually, not much. ;)
In my original concept I wanted this as 4 seasons, but only did spring. I finally started doing Autumn, then I made that one summer, and also did winter. But, for whatever reason, I found the summer one (this one) to be rather bland... so, I wasn't sure how to cut the thing.
IN the end, I repurposed a music track I made for a film I'm working on because the director wanted someone else's music, and cut the animation, and even re-worked the last part in After Effects.
I felt sometimes its better to keep some things simple. Ya know?
I will eventually re-cut all 4, and maybe make 1 more version in Purple w my brand logos.
i was also thinking of cutting it like an old video game interface look...
It's just an experimental film series so I can practice & learn Adobe After effects better. (they don't exactly teach it very well in schools, nor online. so I have to try and figure this stuff out alone. )
I will then move on to reworking another of my films from UMASS Boston in 2016. I did some stuff for Inktober, and I'm gonna make those as flapping butterfly puppets in After Effects. I just got Trapcode so I'm hoping to incorporate that as well.
After that, I hopefully want to MOVE ON from puppet animation and get back to Traditional Animation, and do several thorough studies of the fundamentals.
I invite & welcome you to follow along with my progress, and I also stream much of my work as I'm doing it LIVE in Twitch.
AND, I want to preserve traditional animation as well because the industry does NOT own it, and does NOTHING to support animation as an artform. I also feel there aren't any honest and positive role-models out there as well.
