Last week of studio experience just past away and here is the last update on activitys done throughout the time.
The week was busy with getting the last animations ( the ones which involved toymaker's character) done.
There were quite a few of them :
toymaker in production line scenes
The scene of Toymaker meeting his creation :
When Animation was completed , I've concentrated on postproduction, that is compositting and editting.
Main changes done in after effects were to achieve a certain look and feel , whether it meant to add noise, increase exposure, animate glow. All the scenes had their colours tweaked, most of the time ading 4 colour gradient to add some variety in other wise quit simple looking scenes ( such as marching army shadow on field etc.)
Heavy editting is what our project relied uppon from the very beginning, and that is where I found myself for .. 3 days. Weird enough, towards the end of editting each time I'd have a headache, what isn't usual to me at all , so perhaps these subliminal shots and speedy sequences really do effect somehow :D
Here is a taster of the final product, a teaser trailer :
Appart from that it was time to wrap the project up, so here are the designs of DVD cover and DVD disc:
Ant the actual painting suggests the story of film itself. The toy which was created to bring happynes and joy and was an inactive shell, got invaded by alien content and became lost and threatening monster.
There will be one last post, an overview of the project and the trailer itself :)
