Today I started cutting my set. I just took a card box and started cutting it the way I think will suit the best for my set.
After that, I made a few stop motion experiences of details of the bird. (the eyes, the beak, the hair and the fake legs)
- bird’s eye and mouth
- bird’s hair and head
- bird walking detail
- Walking detail 2
- Bird’s fingers movement
- Ball rolling
Later on, I made a few extra eyes to add some emotions. Meanwhile, I got the email from my dad with the pictures of the gym so I printed them and put them on the set to start picturing how I want the set to look like.
The pictures are not great quality but as I know the gym by heart it’s easy for me. I will use paper with a wood pattern for the floor. That’s what I decided.
After that I started storyboarding the stories I wrote and Eve told me that I should write under each picture what’s happening, the dialogue and arrows indicating what he character is doing.
The project is going as schedule but it is still a lot of work ahead. I am really excited about the final outcome and I love how this project is making me grow and understand what it takes to pursue animation. (though I am aware that in the animation world I won’t be able to participate so much in one animation, I would be responsible for a small part)
