Reflections

I felt that this project was quite interesting as it acts like a sort of basis to spark of the creative mind to come up with storylines for the next project which is storyboarding. It was cool experimenting with the compositing process but i felt like the originality and complexity of the pictures could be further improved as most of the characters are just taken off the internet which would not do good in the future assignments.

A couple of weeks back, we headed out to the thieves market to procure some materials to use for our project.

With an idea of a spider in mind, i went to get the parts. I obtained a what looked like a metal measuring tape thingy and some springs, screwdrivers, gears, spoons and a light bulb.

In class, piecing the project was enjoyable as it was a first using the hot glue gun. Even though things fell apart sometimes, it was kinda fun and satisfying to see the model forming together.

Eventually, the model turned out to be more like something out of a Star Wars movie…

Focusing on the “less is more” logic, i took out four of the eight legs, added two spoons to form the ears, threw in a tail and added in a trunk. TA-DA, what came out was a elephant!

I believe it was a fruitful experience as you have to come up with solutions to overcome the problems in building the model. Can’t wait to work on the next one!

Reflection

At the start of this project, i felt very unmotivated as i was still waiting for inspiration to strike. As i started browsing through the web, slowly but surely little bits of inspiration started popping into my head like tiny light bulbs. Riding along this wave of motivation, i completed the pictures one after another while feeling a sense of satisfaction. However something seems to be lacking from the photos or so it seems…

Wish it came true!

Hi! my name is Chris, or some of you can call me Domopuff!
I studied Business & Social Enterprise back in Ngee Ann Poly before i came to ADM. I would love to learn more about film and animation as i believe it is one way to bring out the most in people’s emotions.
I would love to have the ability to teleport to any location at any point of time as this removes the limitations of travelling mediums.
Spending an evening dinner in Paris and a morning swim in the Maldives just before class doesn’t sound too bad right!
