'Believable piece of natural history'
It seems very believable the way the animator have create the flying penguins.So much can be considered from watching this as i also noticed the element of humour as many people know that penguins can not fly.
I began thinking about my story even more recently and have come up with a finalised idea which i can work on this week my main priority will be to focus on the storyboarding and creating sketches which i will publish also.
The three act story structure:
Beginning (Act 1)
The attention will be captured in the first few scenes especially the starting scene this will draw the viewer into the film, here the problem will also be identified as the Penguins have a feud with one other besides the hate they have for the out side world for example humans.
Humans have enclosed the penguins into a small enclosures for everyone to see however one penguin adores this fact and later pleases the crowd with his magic tricks and so on.
Middle (Act 2)
Again the tension is between Natural and Humans there is furthermore a feud which creates a more meaningful tensions within the enclosure between the two rival penguins, in my story the macguffin is my object which is an 'egg' although often a macguffin is an insignificant plot device in my case the egg is significant as the main penguin gives birth becoming a rare occasion for the zoo.one of the obstacles he faces is loosing his egg,with the egg the penguin becomes famous performing for the crowds without is he is just an average penguin like the rest although he thinks the public have come to see him and his new found ambition as a magician performing his magic tricks.
End (Act 3)
As the idea has changed slightly
You can see from the sketches done for my storyboard, that in the shots there are mainly two penguins this was the huge change which had to be made in order for my animation and the whole project in general, limiting it down made things fit in to the time scale.
Ive never used editing software such as adobe premiere pro cs3 so I'm expecting another challenge to overcome it will give me the opportunity to gain experience of a within new aspect of the course using editing software .
collecting the sounds
whilst searching around for free audio for my animatic i need to understand the files that worked on adobe premiere pro cs3 most of the files that i located worked however some didn't, you can also see from this print screen of my animatic where things were positioned.
Designing the animatic
When creating the animatic i thought it look very pain and so some of the effects helped using them was very simple , all that was needed was a simple drag and drop on to the clip or audio, some of the effects consisted of blurs mosaic and so many more there were other options such as audio effects and video effects adding to the wide range of uses premiere has.
The animatic will be accompanied by some illustrations from a scene within my story board i have to remember that timing is key to create a successful animatic the transitions between the image and the audio for example all these are need to be spot on as it will effect the overall preview.
Here are some examples of the shots which i modeled using Maya for the navigation pre-vis
The pre-vis is basically going to be a fight scene between the two penguins as the rival is standing looking around for the other penguin he is unaware that the penguin is hiding behind the rocks ready to ambush his pray.
