I have designed an anteater in minimal style for the green screen project.
We have been told to create simple story and animation for this project just showing our techniques and knowledges in compositing live action and animation.
Therefore I planned to do all the action parts by myself and less animation so as to reduce my workload in animation lol.
Basically I am an annoying visitor in a zoo. I will be as tiny as an ant. At the beginning the anteater is deeply asleep. I am doing everything to wake him up and draw his attention.
On the shooting day, I learned about the importance of teamwork and brainstorming. Our group of people were doing everyone’s best to help each other to achieve the best results.
Here are some points that I found important for shooting:
1. Storyboarding and preparation – We have to plan everything in advance in order to save time and carry out the best results.
2. Body language – exaggeration to make the scenery interesting.
3. Composition of your design and the relationship between the angle of the camera – to make the outcome more natural.
After all, it was a great experience that I enjoyed it very much.
Here are some sketches of anteater for the character development.
I have been looking for the basic features of anteater in order to create a creature which is formed by minimal lines and shapes.
