A few days later I revived another email from Mal my client:
My animation has caught the interest of my client and he would gladly display it to the public but I only need to make a adjustment to the file since I made a spell mistake with Theatre, I have since then corrected this spelling mistake and have began to look at a way to present my work on one of the screen at the Kadromah94.
One of the other locations I investigated for my client project was the media cafe the Kadromah94 located at 94 Alfred Gelder Street Hull, I went to investigate this as a potential client that would be able to host my project since it host a wide range of Media based events. When I visited the cafe, I asked a member of staff if I could talk to the manager of the establishment. I was asked why and I told them that I was a third year Animation student at Hull School of Art and Design and that I was looking for someone who could host one of my works to public as it is part of my course. I was given a email address that the manger prefers to be emailed and that he is all ways busy so this is the best way to reach him. I email the manger of the Kardomjah94 once I got back:
I received a response two days later requesting that I send a MP4 format of the file and that I should try Humberfilm. Once I received this email I began to trying to find a way to converted my file for famous women of Hull into a MP4 unfortunately SWF files and FLA files can’t be tranfered into these formats without loosing actionscript3 which is a key component to my Famous Women of Hull Project, so my Tutor Gareth suggested that I do a screen recording of it and send my client that instead.
This post is another on a Hull City of Culture exhibits:
The exhibit will visit several different towns and cities for several weeks. The Poppies are made out ceramic materials and painted before been placed from a window and designed to flow from a designated window within the town or city before reaching a gravel based ground that is also part of the exhibit. The exhibit is a memorial piece for memorial day, for all the brave soldiers that sacrificed their lives to protect their countries and families.
This post is for the pictures taken for the city of culture exhibit fan:
The propeller was moved to Queen Victoria’s square after the opening evening of Hull City of Culture. It is a modern design Propeller for a wind turbine. This piece was shown at the city of culture for eight months before been removed for the next exhibit that would takes it’s place later on. The fan is considered a symbol of not only modern science and culture but also what humanity can achieve if we focus on green energy sources.
I got the idea for these business cards after seeing the old fashion films from movies and camera’s and since animation uses a very similar process involving frames I thought it would be a cool idea for a business card.
This is what one of my original prototypes looks like for my business card, I used the image of a film still next to it to try and help me create an accurate replicate example of it in my business. The reason I chose this sort of idea for my Business card is that my tutor pointed out that my original concept and logo was not very clear and that I need to add more details to explain what the name Amtanimator actually meant. So it was decided that an idea like this would be better suited for this project. The final concept is not only a good idea to show that I am an animator but it also displays my previous projects that I have done this year and to also show that I have some experience in that sort of animation. The card is also easy to read and understand meaning my contact details are easy to understand as well.
This post was to show the improved version of the Bubble and Squeak Animation:
This version of the Bubble and Squeak has more sound effects such as more water dripping and longer Squeaks from Squeak. This was done to remove the mistake from the previous version which suddenly went quite during key moments of the animation, which also helps show how annoying the leaking tap actually is. These mistake were sounds like a sound track to go through the entire animation not just the opening and credits. The sounds also missing was the tap tripping when not on screen that was the easiest fix of all but the one that I added to ad bit more was the other character cheering with their natural noise to the other character to highlight their sense of character and their relationship as well as to show that this is a average day for them.
This a post of my final version of Bubble and Squeak including sound and Music effects, that are either of my own creation or are Royalty Free:
I made the final version by gather all my chosen clips and scenes from my recording sessions and gathered sound effects before transferring them to Adobe Premiere Pro and then dragging the desired videos and sounds to their correct place. I also cut several of the scenes and moved them around to get the best quality out of all the clips. The final version of Bubble and Squeak was worth it, the puppet I made each had their own personality and story which helped bring this project to life. The story is so compelling and from the people from the target audience that I have shown from my Tutor Janis to a few fashion students have all enjoyed it and said it is a cool bit of animation that looks like a long time was spent on it. The only down fall is that some of the scenes suddenly go quite so I will need to fix that as soon as possible, maybe add the soundtrack all the way through, I know that the tap stops dripping at some points so I will look into that.
