Change Of Plans







So it turns out that microphones really scare people :( ... the amount of rejections i got is unbelievable, the shop lady completely refused to even think about :( so i had to change my idea and it evolved through several stages , from being a surfing-surfboard, to a seagull surfer ... and THAN a breakthrough i recorded my sound and suddenly an idea of a turtle seemed brilliant , don't really have my final design but here are a few sketches of the work in progress, and the sound bite edited in sound booth. The length i think is 43 seconds, but i had to cut quite a lot of funny stuff out :(. so here it is .

After Effects

video
This is my After Effects project, but unfortunately not a very good quality copy yet, as dynamic link just REFUSED to work and render cue was also very stroppy. So after 4 hours of rendering this very low quality video is a result :D , enjoy !

My Life in Falmouth Initial Thoughts






Here is a couple of my initial ideas , but i really think its going to change depending on what sound i will record, im posting a few images of my character design sketches and also a "things i associate with cornwall" page :) a jumble of ideas.
Firstly i thought of this shop in falmouth, which is just FUUULLL of like a gazillion things, i don't really know what it's called but when you walk in, there's really not even enough space to stand :D , so i want to maybe interview the shop owner, see if anything good comes of it :) and the character that i came up with is a hedgehog :) , (well not fully came up with yet , but its getting there).
Than i decided to sketch all the things that i associate with cornwall, and whilst doing that i came up with a possible other idea - A surfboard as a character.
So based on those two things i should be able to get an interesting sound recording when i go into falmouth.
