S: Seasons of Change
FC: Justine Finlay 3d Animation
1: Advanced Project - Brief Here I plan to write down my initial ideas that I am going to develop. This is a rough outline for what I plan to research deeper into. I have come up with 3 solutions that I feel with help me achieve and successfully execute this project. I plan to research in depth a general knowledge behind these so I know what is achievable and what will be complete in the appropriate time scale. I will mind map by ideas and write down things I feel can be changed if the initial idea cant be done. This will help me have a back up idea, and keep on track for time if this problem does arise. I feel by thinking realistically about what problems will arise and thinking about what is achievable will make it easier for me to complete this project and also I will have back up ideas if it comes to it. For my brief I intend to map out the interesting areas within the half mile radius of my house and think about what opportunities I have got to make an interactive walk out of. I intend to try and channel my interactive walk towards 3D as this is the idea I am aiming to push my portfolio towards. I have come up with a few concepts for this which includes creating my interactive walk, and also recreating some scenes in 3D and merging the two to create something which is different and unusual. I feel by merging the video and also 3D animation will help me develop my skills further, it will push me as a project and it will also benefit my portfolio. I plan to think of the things I see daily on this common walk and try and think of ways in which I can make them appear fun. I am thinking of objects that are normal looking and perceiving them very differently than what they would normally look like – taking features from specific inanimate objects and enhancing them or altering their appearance completely. I feel by doing this to a certain extent it will engage the viewer and also keep them entertained. I feel it will also help develop my video skills and will help me learn new skills by taking something that is still and converting it into 3D. My other idea is taking different people walking against a green screen and placing these on my journey. I will create a 3D animation that will then show different parts of the video and will be passed around person by person showing their different thoughts and different views of the journey. I feel both of these ideas are achievable and would work well. I could possibly try and intertwine both to create a more dramatic story with good twists.
2: MY WALK Here are pictures of the location to inspire me | By researching things which are commonly seen on my walk i am inspiring myself to come up with ideas to make my project interesting
3: What i see on my walk... | Looking at things which are commonly disregarded and classed as normal i can think of ideas on how to incorporate my ideas. For example using 3D to exaggerate a scene.
4: Objects... Here are objects both in real life and 3D which could possibly be added to my project | Looking at things like these in 3D can add an interesting twist
6: what i | HEAR | By exaggerating noises that are not thought about in depth and become normal can give of a special feel. | DOGS BARKING | DOORS SHUTTING | SHOUTING | CAR HORNS. CARS. CHILDREN. LAUGHING. CRYING. BABIES. WALKING. TALKING. FOOT STEPS. WIND BLOWING. LEAVES RUSTLING. RUBBISH MOVING. BIRDS TWEETING. CAR ALARMS. TRAFFIC. DOOR BELLS. PHONE CALLS. PHONES RINGING.

8: Half Mile Radius... | The half mile radius i have picked is between my house and the bus stop. The reason i have chosen this is because it is a journey i take nearly everyday and i do not pay attention to the things which i see on this route.
9: Half mile radius of my house
10: Doors . . . | Since my kitchen is going to have a door or window i am looking at different types of door designs to hep get a good idea.
