In this week's class, our theme is movement, and the premise I developed is the spider curiously exploring the item on the table, and the boy raises a glass in his hand tremblingly, aiming at the spider.
- There is a spider walking on the table, it is intrigued by items on the table.
- The spider is being found by a boy afraid of spiders.
- He finds a glass on the table and raises it.
- The boy raises a glass in his hand tremblingly aiming at the spider.
- Camera zoom out, A big spider shade and a small shade of the boy being projected on the wall.
I also created a storyboard for this premise. The work examined the character and camera movement. By moving the camera, I show the boy is afraid of the spider by utilizing the shade.
A similar work is “What’s Opera, Doc”, which is a cartoon directed by Chuck Jones. There are lots of shots that utilized the shade to depict the character's internal world.
Through this class, I have a deeper understanding of camera movements, I should try the camera move and object moves to achieve different effects when I create animation in the future.
