Finally started to animate the first section. Sorting out the background and eventually decided to paint loads of textures and put them together in photoshop as painting the full background from scratch kept looking a bit sloppy. Kimmo recommended I do a film workshop which really helped me rethink the scratch on film section and realise that the simpler the better for this type of animation.
Here is an edited version of the storyboard for scratch on film section, simplified.
This was a happy accident (: I am going to use this for my sun in the desert section.
Here is my messy set up at uni for line testing.
This is from the processing room for the film workshop where we made rayographs.
This is a still from a David Anderson film which uses pixilation in the forest which is a big inspiration for one of my scenes. Shaun recommended me to look him up and the only way to see him was on VHS at Camberwell so I took a little journey there into the past.
This is a desert reference from the Saguaro Desert.
Mm prickly nopales..
De Chirico is a big inspiration for the section in the desert and his use of shadows.
Here is the desert background without character/shadows/sun in it yet.
