Some of you know that we are going to make a short animation movie in the 2. semester. So had to find some short animation movies today “that show what you aim to do on the 3DFP course”.
I took a look at youtube and found some pretty interesting things and I also made a list of what my goal for my style is.
· Simple and good looking characters
· Really powerful colors
· A bit cartoonish
· Playing with lights
I am going to start with explaining about the last point first. When I say playing with the light, I mean that I want the light to play a role in the film. You can take a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVyDao6XISo . Here do the light have a big role in the movie, but I am not sure I want it to play that big role. Another example is http://vimeo.com/4354110 . I love the way how the light in the background behaves.
For the colors and he characters, I was think of something similar to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Km8MozN36Vc or the balloons in Pixar’s new movie “Up” - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USpI6Jzl3No . The colors and the light should set the mood of the movie, and really give a “happy” look. It’s a bit hard to explain, but I will try to give some examples and try things out when I got my computer, or we got 3ds max at school.
Well, this was just some thoughts about where I want to go, but I am sure that this might change later on. All I know that I want to experiment a lot. If some of you out there have any movies or pictures that might point me in any directions, please contact me and point them out for me. Thanks.
Have a good night. Cya.
