Story 3 – Stretch Marks

Link to video:

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. Screen Shot 2015-05-14 at 00.46.17I 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. Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 14.02.42Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 14.02.35I 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.Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 14.32.10For 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.Screen Shot 2015-05-13 at 13.16.36I 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.

I really like the way this turned out. Screen Shot 2015-05-14 at 00.50.40Screen Shot 2015-05-14 at 00.50.53

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. Screen Shot 2015-05-14 at 00.49.01The Bebo message scene was done using kinetic typography and the typewriter effect.

I used numerous sound effects for this animation. I downloaded most of them from , which is where I get most of my effects for the animations.
