Story boards for third year film

First half of this week I spent creating my storyboards for my animation so everyone can get a better idea of what I want to do and how it is going to look.

The second half of this week (carrying over into the weekend) is changing it into an animatic. I have put the scene's together and recorded the dialogue but I still need to gather some sound effects and then put them altogether in Adobe Premiere

Three Protagonists Complete

Today I completed my third and final protagonists design (which I have shown below). The original back story of the characters where very different from what they are now. Although this doesn't effect the plot at all for the animation I thought it would be interesting to bring up.
Originally the  three characters are unrelated and work for the one character Trixy, But after designing the third character I wanted to change it to that the third character is the father and the other two are his son and daughter.

Again although this don't changed anything for animation I'm creating, it would if this was to go onto be on going series.

(below are two images of my first initial sketch and the final characters I decided to go with)

Protagonists Character Development

This week I have been working developing my three main characters for my current project.
I have finished two out of three but still need to create a turn around and expression sheets but I decided I wanted to leave that till I finished that until all the characters are designed for two reasons:

First, I want to see if they look had staying power, because many of times I have designed a character and thought I liked the way they looked to completed all the expression and action sheets and find out I didn't like the design as much as I thought I did and then I wasted a day or two.

Second reason is I don't want to spend all my time on some of my characters expression sheets to run out of time which results in maybe the world design being cut short.

Maybe this will come back and hit me back of the head or maybe it wont, time will tell.

Below I have posted images of two of my characters (final design... which might change if the staying power doesn't last) and concepts for my third character

Character Trixy's Clothes

For the last day or two I've been developing my characters but to be specific gathering research images and drawing what clothes they should wear.
I've done a few concepts for one of my characters (Trixy) but I still got a few more things to want to try before I going to detail. Below I've posted some of the concepts I have done.

Starting New Project Pre Production

Monday I was given my new brief for pre-production for animation of my own creation.
I already had an idea of what I wanted to do so I could jump straight in., so far I've written an outline and started writing who the characters are (name, age, history etc).

But at the same time I have my first hand in for my dissertation Monday coming up so I have to put this project on hold little bit until I am up to scratch on it.

After Effect Final Video Progress

I thought I would show a few screenshots of my progress so far on my final video for the After Effects project to show how it is coming along.

I have also recorded the audio that will be narrating over the top of the video and once all the clips are complete I can then edit them all together.

After effects test 1

Over the week I got in touch with charity I picked to do my promotional video on and they where fine with me doing a video for them and I've created a ruff storyboard as well as gotten started on blocking it out.

I also created a few more tests which I've put in a video show reel below
