Overview

overall i am pleased with this project and i think my animations all work effectively. my favourite is the Rotoscoped video of singing on the rain. and my least favourite has to be the fisherman animation as i really struggled to do the cut out animation.

what i can take away from this project is that rotoscoping is hard, cut out animation is hard, and its hard to tell a story or portray a narrative in 10-20 seconds. these projects have reinforced my feelings that 2d/hand drawn animation is not for me.

this animation is a more developed variant of the video below. in this one i decided to use only one weather logo. i think this one works better visually and gives a better visualisation of the weather at any given time. i particularly like the transition between weathers. i used photoshop to create the transitions as i am not very familiar with flash and i think i produce better results in photoshop. if i was to go back and change anything it would be the moon and the stars, i think the moon is a weird shape and the stars don’t twinkle like i wanted them to.

this is my first attempt at creating a weather forecast for 24 hours, what i like is the fact that the weather symbols are bright and easily distinguishable. as i said because this i a first draft it is very rough and needs lots of improvements.

this is my third edit, this has more sound effects and some minor timing fixes.
