Test Footage

Before I move on from the Pre-Production Stage to Production I must make sure that everything I have made works well for the goal I have set out for with each part. For example that the puppets move well enough to animate while still looking like my original designs. Therefore I test each part to... Continue Reading →

Music

The Music is a large part of my film that guides the story and draws in the audience, making it highly important. And a part I am not skilled for and so I asked for assistance from Jamie Dowen on creating a music score for my film. In a meeting, I went through the style... Continue Reading →

Assisting Set Makers

Once again this is another stage of pre-production where I know I don’t have enough time to make all the sets myself and so once again I shall make two of the set parts and get assistance with the other two.   The first set was that of the Yellow Garden which I got assistance... Continue Reading →

Set Making

The first part to my set making was to work on the walls and floors. I needed two walls overall which I made from foam board to keep as lightweight as possible but keeping the detail crafted for them. I cut the indents for the bricks making up the wall and on one side of... Continue Reading →

Assisting Puppet Makers

Puppet Making

And so the first stage was in the metal workshop... Continue Reading →

Animatic and Sound Design

My Animatic developed a lot with the story. I had an initial drawn animatic that followed the original storyline with Carlina being older and coming from work when she discovers the other colours coming through the wall. 'Colour' Animatic from Frankie Wright on Vimeo. This got developed into a younger character when presented as it... Continue Reading →

Storyboard

This is my first draft of the storyboard that I started out with on this project, having the montage of the other coloured lands until led to Carlina working at a desk. However as my story and characters developed to become younger schoolgirl this storyboard became void and was re-made to the actual storyline.  ... Continue Reading →

Set Designs

I began working on set designs by looking through my research and inspiration gathered. Focusing on of course the colour schemes and picking out small parts that I most liked from the collections. I shall first go through the set designs that were later to be written out of the story line and so no... Continue Reading →
