Off the top of my head: I want to continue working in 3D animation, probably creating a series of animations (maybe include motion-capture, maybe focus on humour/style or something else).
Statement of Intent
Continue focusing on 3D animation to improve my skills and to create a series of animations (brief to be determined) that explores this.
Last semester I focused a lot of 3D animation, it was my first attempt at animating in a 3D package. It required me to transfer my previous 2D and stop-motion animation skills into 3D as well as learn the ropes of the way 3D works. There’s a lot more technical things to get a grip on like the graph editor and interface.
For this module I think I’d like to continue focusing on 3D animation. I think my strength lies in when I have a strong idea of my own (often humorous) that I see to the end.
I think my weaknesses lie mainly in the timing of the movement in the characters. I think the poses are suitable but could be more quick paced in moving to those poses and more emphasis of anticipation and follow through.
The sort of project ideas I currently have in mind are mainly creating a series of animations. Similar to last semester they’d be short 5-10 seconds. I’d choose a focus such as creating these animations for a character in a game, or perhaps a few scenarios with a stylized animation technique such as squash and stretch. I may want to experiment with motion capture to create more realistic animations.
