These two last weeks we were taught Drawing for Animation by Frederik Villumsen and Rebecca Bang Sorensen. We have finally been really introduced into the animation workflow and our assignment was the following : we had to create a 6-seconds-footage with the character of Mickey in the Sorcercer's Apprentice in which we had to tell this story :
“Mickey has put on the Sorcerer’s magical hat and is conjuring his most powerful spell! The result is not what Micket expected.”
The result looks still a little clumsy and unfinished but what I got from this module was more that I expected : for the first time with our animation basics in mind we were able to depict precisely a personal idea in animation. I went from this crazy picture of Mickey casting his spell through a silly ritual dance to this final result. What a joy when you realise that this is possible. We are about to begin another step in the animation process which is the inbetweening. It will fill in all the blanks and static frames you can see and we will I hope get a fluent and smooth final picture. I'll conclude by : IT HAS BEEN THE FIRST REAL SELF TRANSCENDENCE.
Moreover I posted some of my notebook pages in which I doodled teachers, classmates, illustrations... and also was writing my everyday expectations and reflexions about our organisation and workflow.
