Ok so il bring you up to speed… I have finished my video! I am currently exporting it and then on to compressing it!I had done this earlier however I realised Id spelt you’re as your’e… so then inc another 30 mins renering and 40 mins exporting. Also had a bit of a size dilemma, my video was exporting to a 7.5gb file, and thats not helping anyone so had to run it through a compressor which took it right down! so smiles all around. I have also consumed a huge amount of food today while getting everything done.
Just to explain, I tried over and over to make the collage id planned to do at the end, but everytime I felt it looked tacky and I couldnt get it right, so I thought id make a few text stills to add some emotion and to explain a little bit more, rather than a flash of images, layered in some more sound and some tweaks here and there. My website is updated and my stomach is well and truly oversized. Job well done.
Ok, almost finished, I just need to make the collage of things that happen next, the car scene is drawn and photographed, the unveiling of the glass feet sectiong is almost finished so all that remails in the montage of what happened next to photograph, edit and add the sound and then all done :). Ive made an edit of around 3 minutes so far whic Im exporting as we speak to show Conor tomorrow, ive spent so much time on it, im hoping he dosnt find my work tacky or not enough, I had a moment earlier of disliking it but now my minds changed and im quite happy with it, ive been editing in adobe premiere pro and im quite suprised how similar yet so different it is to final cut. Im getting the hang of it anyway.
As im continuing to draw this morning before work I cannot help but feel the overwhelming familiar feel that what im doing is just not good enough. I get this feeling every project and now I just feel deflated and fed up, I want to just stop, but im not going to, im going to keep going and hopefully I will pick up again, im just drawing some extra scenes before heading off to work early. whats troubling me, is the text. Im worried the text looks tacky even though I am trying to give it a kind of moving comic feel so people arent left in the dark and I can get across whats actually happening.
I am looking forward to and dreading meeting with Conor tomorrow. Im hoping its the former.
OK, so Im getting through it, as Im putting it together theres bits iv wanted to add in so ive been spending time on those, fitting them in, little additions and whatnot, tonight Im hoping to get the time lapse of the collage started and hopefully finished, just needing to find a good place to do it as you can see from the example I did before, the camera and shots are so shaky, id rather it be smoother and transition easier. I thought Id take some time this morning to update the admin side of this project for example my project proposal and add more to this blog. I also have yet to edit this all together peroperly, add the sounds and enter the captions. This will all be happening in the next few days, everything finished by the weekend.
