After about approximately 3 hours of work time overall, I was able to finish my final animation for project #2. Overall im pretty satisfied with the final product, although i wish i couldve had more time to experiment with the Animatron program, and been able to learn how to use it better. I used the songs “Without Me” by Eminem, which is a very straight,staccato rap composition, and “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars, which is a more flowing legato composition.
Here is my project for animation. I used two songs that I listen to, Empire by Shakira and Mad Hatter by Melanie Martinez. It look me about 2 hours to complete the actual animation and plus 10 minutes in adding sound track.
*Something is wrong with Animatron, progress in fixing.
My Animation : Here
In this project, I learned how to make designs based on staccato and legato sounds. I have to say I struggled mostly with the staccato designs because my designs were way too complicated. What I did was refine of few of the staccato designs and made it more centered instead of all over the place. I also had a tough time picking staccato music since my earlier choices didn’t have much of an impact with the beat because of the instrument. Even though I came across some struggles, I had a lot of fun experimenting with this project. This project made me come up with designs I never knew I could come up with. Now as a final result I’ve created an animated mash up that has an African drumbeat mixed with a song called “Only You” by Winter Sonata. The time it took to complete this project was 5 hours and 30 minutes.
