Whole New Direction!

So I completely got rid of my first idea...the blocks are gone! It just didnt fit with the direction i was going. Anyway so I have adapted to my roadblocks. I am trying to utalize the strengths and limitations of the shape tween feature and surprisingly I am happy with the results.

For the second chorus part (begins with orange drip form at top), I am not sure what to do with the background. The next two sequences uses solid color (white than black) for the background so I do not want to use a solid color for this one. The previous uses dots which i like but it needs to be something different.

Kandinsky Inspiration

Here is an undated version. It still needs a lot of work but I like the direction I am going with it. Not sure if I want to keep the abstract animation black and white or use colors. Please let me know what you think. THANKS!

More progress

So I worked tonight on the snake segment. The video has a large gap where there is no animation after the blocks sequence but there is stuff after that. Frame by Frame takes too much time!


So here is a very brief clip of what I have so far. The swoosh on the first set of images are not final, I was just testing the movement of it. Also I have realized that with the movements I would like to do, I have to key frame everything which is going to take me forever.

Anyway I have worked out a lot more specific ideas for my project and if anyone is interested I wouldnt mind sitting down with someone and bouncing them off of them. I will probably be in the lab all this week in the evening so if anyone would like to help I would appreciate it. My email is Lmorle20@student.scad.edu



I was sick with Pneumonia last week and didnt get much work done. My project was also a mess because I had been working it out all in one file. Now I have created a new and organized flash file. I create all the images in another and then bring it into this one.

3D Subtle Gesture

Progress on Final

I was having a hard time starting the project, so last night I just sat down and played around with it. I started off with an original idea from my storyboard. I made a mistake while creating but it inspired me to incorporate afterimages in order to create secondary visuals. So I moved beyond my original idea and spent the next two hours doing something completely different. In the end I decided that I liked my original idea better so I went back and fixed it. However, I am going to still intertwine afterimages into my concept.

As far as a schedule, I cannot come up with a strict schedule. Basically I am using the method of automatism and its hard to preplan everything. I will split up the song into sections and set loose due dates for those.

Also for character sheet, I will be posting video's of my ideas as I work through them. I work much better when I just create it at that time oppossed to carefully planning it. It would be different if I was doing character animation but my forms are abstract.

I have decided on a color scheme. I will be using Red (BA1212), Green (0B470B), Orange (CC4400) and Blue (0B0B74).

Lip Sync

Finished the final tutorial. Now I have to get started on the final project!

Walk Cycle

Here is my walk cycle. I did it frame by frame which although takes more time, I think it is easier.
