I first brought a perspex box with no lid and then I got a perspex sheet and cut a lid out to go onto the box to which I then added hinges so that it can open and close freely. Inside the box i fitted a peice of wood with a short block of wood stuck to it, to the front of the box. On this peice of wood I attached a tiny geared motor with a cam follower which I thought was really cool being so small. Alongside this inside the box are 3 green leds that have been solded to wires to make them longer. The code for the LED makes them pulsate and the geared motor turn repeatedly to allow the cam follower to flip up the lid of the box making it bang down. Then I painted the box black and eched into the paint, vains to show the light of the LED shinning through.
I found the music for my showreel now and have downloaded the track its called pir just like the sensor I’m using for my Arduino. Things I’m having a few problems timing it for my work though but I have made a showreel. If I have time i’ll make another one with a bit better timing and my double project.
Here is the final version of my website, most of the content is up there now I just need to add my double project
this is some stills of the final video with intro credits and all the effects
I have started looking at work for my showreel and deciding what I’m going to have in it and so far iv decide to have:
- 7 images I did in photoshop
- My glow animation for game design
- My rigged creature
- My creature animation
- My corridor from animation model
i haven’t finished my double project if I have time I’ll add that too.
Just got to start looking at music.
bella and yvonne work together on finaliseing the speical effects and we all edited diffenet parts of the animation another of my roles was to aquire the sound for the animation and the add the sound too the final render of the over all animation these are the sounds we used
it was a challene to get the timing of the clips just right
this is one of the videos i exstracted the sound from useing video2mp3
To make the creature I used the Polymorph putty which I found very easy to do and very strong so it wasn’t fragile like the first creature I made using molding clay. I made it in parts and gradually built it up The great thing about it is if there is a part I don’t like I can always heat it up and remold it. I made the head last as I needed to add the LED’s to it and build around it. I had so solder the LED to longer wires so that it would reach out from the Arduino.
Here are the development shots
i was also asigned the task to put together the credits
in the end i did the credits in adobe premiem which id never used before i was really happy with them they are composed of mario font with a white back group keeping to the style of the intro
