adventures in everything...

TO DO: 1st Feb – 7th Feb

01 Feb 10

I’m trying to be more organised with these two new projects as I have a LOT to do, so I figured I’ll try put a weekly plan up to try and tick off, then if I don’t get at least 70% of it done you can all tell me off for being lazy. 

Here’s this weeks list…
E4:
  *Final Character Designs – coloured and on A3 sheet – this will allow me to see what needs to be made for each model and I can tick off on each model what has been done.
  *Ideas for sets – plan of layout – as this is filmed as though the character is running through one long set I am going to draw up a timeline, like a visual script, detailing the sets so I know what needs to be made.
  *Collect research images and start typing up.
Odd Shaped Head:
  *Final Character Designs – coloured and on 2x A4 sheets – one sheet for the band and one for the two lead characters, again this will allow me to see what needs to be made for each model. Once I am able to work on storyboards when I have a copy of the song I can work on supporting characters.
  *Set ideas/ concept art – these will be based on the concept so far to provide images for the storyboards which will be done once I have heard the final recording of the song so that I can plan out how the video will play out. Once I have a copy of the song I will be able to draw upthe actual storyboards and then I can work out what sets I need.
  *Maquette for Lion Head – if I get time this week I’ll try to make a maquette of the Lions head out of plasticine to see how it might look and to show the band so I can get some feedback on how the design looks in 3D.
Armatures: as both my projects are stop motion then this covers both projects.
  *flesh out armatures with plasticine to make moulds
  *make boxes for armatures for moulds
  *start making moulds with vinamold
  *start making armatures for OSH models with Polymer Clay feet baked on.
PPD:
  *document armature building
  *500 words on skillset
  *festivals
  *sort out PPD folder – 3rd year universities, skillset, live briefs, competitions.
hmmmm, well not sure how much of a dent i’ll make in that lot but i’ll have to give it a good go!
