Animation planning blog post

    • Discuss how you are going to approach each shot you have been assigned.
      I will take on my shots by using a CAT rig to plan how it will look and then make my finished model do the final animations.
    • Create, collect, and analyse video reference for your animation.

      This is the type of movement that I’d like my mech to achieve.

    • Create thumbnail images as you plan each of your shots.

      These are shots of my mech being created around the CAT rig and soon animated in the style of the video above.

      Post-Mortem

      Reflect on how you (and your team) have performed with regards to behaviour, collaboration and the major events/issues that occurred during the project:

    • Identify 3 or more important team or project events/issues that occurred during the project, including both positive and negative aspects.
    • 1. Large brainstorming session (P – We collected our thoughts and planned for the future. N – Not everyone was onboard or paying attention.)
      2. Animatic (P – Everyone provided a great basis to then make everything in 3d. N – Our 2d skills weren’t the best so the animatic looked average at best.)
      3. Working with audio students (P – good learning experience and good to have connections in other fields. N – They didn’t understand how long things would take so they started demanding things very quickly.)
    • Analyse the cause of these events/issues in order to discover the true cause (rather than just symptoms)
    • 1.We needed to brainstorm so we could wrap our heads around how we were going to take on this project.
      2. An animatic was needed so our lecturer could get a grasp on how we were going and it was also needed so we could stick to a plan when creating the final product.
      3. We needed to work with other disciplines on this project mainly the audio discipline and one of the biggest take aways from that would be now we’ve made more contacts within our field and fields that are in the same industry.
    • Suggest at least one solution for each of the events/issues identified.
      (Include how you would minimise/mitigate the negative events and encourage more positives.)
    • Reflect on the effectiveness of your project plan, and how much the project execution diverged from the plan.
    • Reflect on the effectiveness of your communication, including the success of pitches.

    • Reflect on the roles within the animation production process:
    • Identify at least one Transferable skill you seek to improve based on your performance during this project.
    • Suggest at least one Strategy to improve performance.
    • Comment on the overall Ownership of Responsibilities during the project.
    • Personally, reflect on how suitable/effective you felt your role(s) was.
