2310 P5 practice2
This was an initial timing and trying to figure how to best create the movement of the slides and shoes. I did not think the cheesy sound effects were the best use of that sense, so I ended up removing the title and sounds. Also, I was able to use the background as a practice for what the background ended as.
This is what it changed into:
2310 Proj 5
I changed the timing of the moment the shoe got lost, as well as the number of frames. I also adjusted the cropping of some frames after receiving feedback.
To brush one’s teeth is too dance. The sharp click, opening the paste, ignites the jig. It begins with the twirl of the wrist. Spinning, leaping, gliding, the brush devours the teeth in goo. Slowly, as the melody softens, the foam leave the teeth settling into a foam stage. The brush dips back, massaging and stroking the molars. The melody jumps, and water is introduced. Splashing and colliding into gums and teeth alike, the water playfully gurgles. A quick spit, a wipe of the mouth, and the squeal of the facet ends the dance with a bow.
I have never animated something before, so I practice using a combination of Photoshop and iMovie to create a small practice animation. This helped me define my limitations in terms my abilities in each program. It was a quick experiment that guided how I would create the actual project.
I used foam core board and bristle paper to elevate components of the organic shapes. I kept the shapes white and raised the to various heights. I felt that these were a focal point in the piece because they show the finished cleanliness that comes with the brushing. I wanted the white blobs to come out of the poster as way to say, “hey, look how fresh and clean we are!”.
I developed my prototype with the use of the blue as my only color. The blue is representational of the toothpaste; however, the different shades and tints of the same hues emphasize the transformation that from gross and dingy to light and clean. I use the darkest blue to push the sensation of the sharp mint cutting into one’s taste buds. I made the swirled shapes softer and less intense as they present the constant circular movement during the process. Lastly, the organic forms (originally plain white circles) were added into order to express the change in the tooth paste as it coats the teeth. I also included the frames to present the viewer with the message of contained chaos. Notice how the patterns circle each other- this was done to remind the audience that this is a daily process that is included in the cycle of most. The final adjustment of the perspective intent is to prevent the design from being too static. Brushing teeth is a mindless, simple act, yet the toothbrush, paste, and water involve are is constant motion and change. The perspective makes it more dynamic.
