May 22, 2010

Please find this project located in the

front of my A3 portfolio (process work)

and

the back of my A1 portfolio (finished piece)

(Evaluation & description can be found in the ‘project evaluation’ post, with all the other projects.)

What an amazing cover!
Just been doing my research on the song called Triad performed by Jefferson Airplane (one of my favourite bands)
I was looking the internet for alternative cover versions, just after I had recorded mine. I figured my own chord structure out and practiced the range of vocals (which I found quite demanding at some points) Grace Slicks voice is very unique, and hard to imitate! But I tried hehe… Will post up, as soon as i make an accompanying video!

Lemon Jelly - "Nice Weather For Ducks" movie still

After watching the “Nice Weather For Ducks” video by Lemon Jelly. I was hooked on their sugary sweet, bold style of vector animation. The style by design company, Airside reminded me alot of design companies like; Rinzen and Friends With You.

I will use this technique of animating lovely colourful vectory-ness to create my own pieces in the weeks to come. I have looked at various techniques in After Effects, that I recognize in the video below, including 3D layers, using alternative camera angles and motion paths. I will start to explore these techniques – as I think they will be a good base to start from. Here’s to up and coming motion graphic adventures in Adobe After Effects!

I’ve also found a video of Lemon Jelly ‘Exhibiting’ Airside artwork in their gigs, turning this seemingly 2d screen-based vector style into something that the crowd can experience around them – turning the vector work, into a performance. I like this idea very much, and it has given me alternative ideas of how my work could be displayed in the future.
