Final Project

Work I liked

I’ve always loved the photo cubes, but I always thought they would be too difficult for me to do. This cube moved perfectly and through the pictures, I was able to actually gain a sense of who the creator was (to some extent). I do wish, however, that he had added some music into it.

So this may be taking advanced animation a little too far for a class level assignment, but this is what the professionals are doing. This clip is from My Hero Academia, an anime that I have really gotten into. To me, most fight scenes I see are advanced animation. They just don’t seem like something that, for lack of a better term, common people can do. In my opinion, this is one of the best fight scenes I’ve seen, although it is kind of short.

I saw this video when I was in middle school, and from then on, I loved it. for 2007, the animation is incredible, and even today I think it still beats a lot of other animations I’ve seen. The sound effects work perfectly, and I like that there isn’t music in it. It’s supposed to be an animator trying to animate something, so there shouldn’t be music in there, to begin with.

My Work

My cousin got married about a month ago, and I had decided to bring my camera along to take pictures and videos. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with them yet. All I knew was I wanted to make her something special. She’s my godmother so she’s always been there for me and means a lot to me. So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to create something for her. I was initially going to try and create multiple cinemagraphs but I was about 90 keyframes in and was at three seconds. Then the idea for the photo cube came to mind, and I had always wanted to attempt one, so I thought there’s no better time than the present. I really liked how it came out. If I were to do it again, I would have had the same clip running throughout the whole thing, instead of smaller clips on each side.
