*EDIT* As I had told my problem to the professor of Animation I class, including the circumstance (The light board broke because the harness of the bag snapped off), he went to convince the crew that the damage is accidental. Thanks to this, I could borrow a light board for a week.
The only thing is, during the screening of the rough animation, the professor pointed out some flaws of our animatic, and made some advices about the story. We organized a new synopsis, and I shall try my best to complete the new storyboard soon. *
Now being in week 10, the semester will end soon, and I will have many things I needed to finish. Things had been a little stuffed in schedule, and I need to keep myself from falling into burnout stage. The tight schedule and do feel tired and a little apathetic to my work. nonetheless I need to summon my willpower to make sure things are completed.
Now I have final projects to tend to from three animation classes, along with two video projects from one DigiComp class. Here are the progress insofar:
The final project required a group effort to complete a one minute short in five different medium (2D, Stop Motion, Pixelation, Rotoscoping, and CutOut). We had contributed in pre-production and some rough animation. My teammates had tried their best to finish the stop motion part, and from what I seen, it looks great. Unfortunately, I had broke the light board used for 2D frames, and until further notice, my equipment account is recently blocked, and I cannot continue on drawing the frames unless I could get another functional light board.
The final project production period had begun yesterday, and today, I had show the classmates and the professor about the concept art and storyboards I made insofar. Last week, we had a brainstorming session based on our dreams. I chose the dream where I fell from a high building. During the brainstorming, I scraped out an idea where a killer robot murders a tiny robot by dropping it from a high building.
However, after some comments from the professor (mostly about the killer robot looking like Iron Man despite I had not looked for the character during the character design, and the design being too stereotypical), I proposed an idea about the killer robot rescuing the tiny robot and reveal himself to be a good guy. The professor approved. I need to draw new concept artworks and a storyboard to accommodate the idea before the Friday.
The final project requires a student or a group to showcase their 3D animation abilities, such as modeling, rigging, animation, lighting, and cinematography. While I had not began the project yet, I had decided to perform animation of a dance. I had asked the professor about the idea, and he said I could use a pre-existing model, under condition I need to change the colour. I had collected the dancing videos, and I would try to complete it soon.
There is also a lighting assignment due this Wednesday, which I am completing now.
There are two assignments left: one for the Twin Video with help of green screen technology, one being the group project. Last week, I had shot the video footage with my team mates. Now with the video footage, I have 8 days to complete the video, alongside with other of my assignments.
