Week Five

Week Five!


Words, continued:

7. Key Frame
A key frame is an extreme, a character drawing of the farthest position or pose.

8. Break Down
The middle drawing between two extremes.
9. In-between
The fill-in drawings between extremes and break-downs.

10. Flipping
Rifling through your animation to see if ‘it’s working.’

Even more words!
11. Peg Bar
12. Acme Hole Punch
13. TV Safe
14. Progressive and Interlace
15. Exposure Sheet (X-sheet)

Our own Precha has allowed me to use his turning head assignment to help everyone figure out how to incorporate our animation words: key frame (or extreme), breakdown, and inbetween into this wonderful assignment.

First- here are each of the 8 drawings for the head turning cycle:

Now for the finished product… Super job, Precha!Precha_headturn

Watch Bouncing Balls!
And make sure you show me your model sheets (if you haven’t done it, yet!).


For homework, you will work on your storyboards. There’s still time to make changes, but you should try to lock things down about now. Use scratch pad paper, or cut paper, or index cards to make your storyboards. Don’t glue them to the poster board or foam core board. You will be removing them to shoot your animatics (unless you wish to draw each one twice!). Removable tape makes this easiest. Of course, you can always cut them out (if glued)- but careful with scissors (and never run with them)! Storyboards will be presented at the beginning of class next week!
