I started off with scene 1 with the opening of the schools door. I first applied a mask on either door and the surrounding building. The mask would not allow the doors to move inwards just swipe to the side or up so I used keyframes to make the doors open. I then went ahead with the locker scene. My illustrator file appeared very blurry(below) so I edited it and it was still very blurry. The image quiality of the origianl image was too poor so I reverted back to my previous graphic of the locker scene. I used real flooring and walls to tie it in with the rest of the story’s style. I placed this underneath the door layers and keyframed it to move and change in size as the doors opened.For the school scene, I firstly added in some background images that my sister took of her classroom. I think it adds realness to the scene. I created the spinning globe in blender. It was nice to use another program apart from After Effects and Illustrator. I dug out my 3D modellling and animation notes to help me along.I then brought the rendered animation into After Effects and put a circle mask on top. From here I matched it up to the globe holder. The lighting in the background image matches up to the light in the globe.
For the school uniform in the bin scene I just applied the bone tool to the tie to make it flow in the wind as if it was hanging of the side of the bin. I used pen strokes and the trim paths effect to create the cracked mirror. I really like the way this turned out.
I used keyframes to get the clothes moving. I played with some sound effects to make it sound like people changing, I am happy with how it turned out. The Bebo message scene was done using kinetic typography and the typewriter effect.
The cubical scene starts off with us seeing feet behind the door and a bag beside the feet. We are then shown the character.
I used numerous sound effects for this animation. I downloaded most of them from www.freesfx.co.uk/ , which is where I get most of my effects for the animations.
