Today, having spent ages thinking about starting the film, I officially animated something. I’m animating quick and dirty, like with Herman Brown, so I can make things really quickly and let the animation develop as I go. I like working instinctively, but within a rough structure. I’m going to keep going along this vein and see what happens.
One thing that’s different to Herman is that I’m animating the characters in one program and compositing in another, meaning I don’t have background elements in. I haven’t figured out how that’s going to work yet - but then, I haven’t decided how it’s going to look yet.
i’m not entirely sure the “attack” - which looks more like a heart attack than a stroke, but a stroke is difficult to animate as it’s kind of just someone falling over. I think at the moment it's not really long enough; the timing’s off or something. Something to be working on, anyway.
