Final project review

my project that chases after his puppy who chased a butterfly into a forest. The boy soon becomes lost and scared when suddenly a ghost appears. she helps the young boy out of the forest and to his puppy.
The first thing I worked on was the puppets. I took time to plan out the size of the puppet and how I needed to rig them. I didn't have too much trouble making them. I feel I approached the rigging of the puppets well. The after effects document took longer then expected but it was worth it. I was able to learn a new way to do paralleling backgrounds. I just wish I could've recorded earlier then I did.
Al in all I love how my project looks.

Artist lecture-Josh Horton

Mr. Horton is currently work in marketing. He work mostly in Alum cover art. It was interesting to lean what it took to make them. I personally didn't know that it can take between 6 to 10 pictures to make one composition.

I truly enjoyed Mr. Horton. He was a funny family man. I feel like I'm more confident about the path I have chosen. Though he changed his corse a good many times, He followed his passions and everything turned out ok. He's even getting married. 

In short, I learned that it is ok to search and find the place you fit in. it's ok to try new things. just follow your passions and everything will be ok.

I have finished my puppets. I have tested the look of the project


I have gotten far on my After effects puppet and environment. I still need to do the monster eyes and time it out a little bit better.

Final Project Presintation

Synopseis

My project is a projection project that includes puppets.


Story
The tittle of my story is still being considered.  The story starts off with a young boy walking with his dog when the dog notices a butterfly and chases after it. The boy quickly goes after his dog. He soon finds himself inside a deep forest. He tries calling for his dog but to no eval. The sun sets and the forest turns spooky. He cautiously contuses on his way. Monstrous eyes start to appear and suddenly he is suddenly confronted with a ghost. The boy is frightened but realizes that the ghost is friendly. The ghostly figure guides the young boy to his dog and out of woods.



I still plan on using the projector and after Effect puppet tool. I have decided to treat the puppets by having the head and body till while the arm and legs are able to bind. My main concern is that is I do my puppets like this I am going to need some assistance.

While experimenting I learned that I need to make the paper puppets little bigger then first expected. I also that the look of the puppets in the foreground

Idea for Final

A boy is walking with his dog when the dog notices a butterfly and chases after it. The boy quickly goes after his dog. He soon finds himself inside a deep forest. He tries calling for his dog but to no eval. The sun sets and the forest turns spooky. He cautiously contuses on his way. Monstrous eyes start to appear and suddenly near by bushes rustle.  His dog jumps out. Its a bitter sweet reunion. Suddenly a ghostly figure appears and the boy becomes frightened but realizes that the ghost is friendly. She helps the boy and his dog out of the forest. 
I plan to use projections, after effect puppets, and paper puppets to achieve this project.

Final Projection Project

I had a real fun time with this project but I did run into a few problems. The vpt7 program was acting weird on my laptop. I couldn't get the guides or the computer icons to turn off.
If I could of changed anything about my project, I would've made the cups bigger. Maybe even make them white and experiment with more textures.
All in all I like I achieved the effect I wanted.

Projector Project Revised Idea


My idea is about a cup of coffee that spills over and floods the area.

My initial plan was to project on an actual stair case but I could not find a power source around the main stair way and the stair case was to small for the projector. I plan on making a set of stairs out of card board and spray painting them white. I am going to include a picture of the main stair case for .





The cup is going to be a normal paper coffee cup. The coffee spill is going to be animated in one main color in Harmony and add an effects in After Effects.
