Few weeks ago I created new video. It was a project in multimedia production. In just three days I created the whole piece. Theme of the project was move. I decided to try my skills in animation, so I decided to use genius g-pen and Flash to do that. Read more…

Move yourself

February 10, 2011 Leave a comment

A few days ago I found out about one interesting contest. The topic was simple -“move yourself”. Okay, I already had a few ideas for that, but there were two problems: first was duration limitation, it had to be less than minute long. Second was, that it had to be non language dependent. So, no narration, no words, just acting. Few friends were already at my place and after detailed planning we took the camera and started shooting. After half an hour, we had all the material we needed so I could start to edit. I used a few tricks that I learned on my course of designing of sound, and here is the final result.

Wish me luck in the contest.

Here is Melvin waking from dream, and.. he has been given a pair of eyes!

During next week, he’ll find some gloves and maybe few more things. Any suggestions?

Birth of character

January 26, 2011 4 comments

Hi everyone!

I have this strange idea and I wont to share it with the world. I’m totally new to 2d character animation, but I want to learn it since I was a kid. Yup, I don’t know what I was waiting for so long. So what if I create one character, and bring him to life? He can learn stuff together with me. If I learn how character walk, he learns how to walk etc. I really need your support and help for this project. I plan to post at least once every week till the end of the year and see how character will evolve together with my skills.

Here is my first character. Do you have any idea how we should call him?

With this post I’m attending The Post Every Week challenge, so wish me luck, and type you soon.

Chroma key

How hard is to remove background from one footage? Yes, yes.. It’s really easy if you do it for (one) picture. A little bit of magic-wand in photoshop and that’s it! But what about video? You have 25 frames per second! That’s a lot of magic-wanding. If you do it that way, it’s called rotoscoping (therm used also for drawing over video). Other way is to record video in front of specially colored background (blue or green) and then in post production (premiere, after effects, etc.) you can remove background with not-so-much-pain.

I added a little bit of masking to give depth to video, and more realistic look.

Here is my example of composing one such short.
