Episode V (and a half) E4 esting
So after three nights of animating (due to no efficient method of blocking out natural light I chose to animate after nightfall for consistency; much like the Dark Knight of animation) and one outrageous nudge of the camera, taking me over twenty minutes to correct, I have finished the E4 esting animation clip. For something that is only ten seconds long it sure was a taxing process, but I am blaming the overly warm conditions of my room (being in the attic) as it seems to accommodate its own micro climate.
For those of you who are unsure what an 'esting' is then follow the link HERE to see a series of short animated clips that make up that odd vacuum between advert and programme.
I must admit that I was not overly happy with the green screen element. The chromo key wasn't as crisp as I had hoped but that would be down to the lighting of the green screen background (which I don't think was consistent). I really need to get myself some dedolights and realise that bed side lamps just don't cut it any more.
Anyway... here is the animation. Enjoy!
