Separate Domains

Picking my own subject of this film, the decision was made to make it based upon inner monologues of a semi deranged individual. The purpose of a monologue is to show a third person view like experience that even the main character is not completely aware of going on. With that basis, the use of dutch-angle shots and shutters in filming will add to the effect of the deranged thoughts and feelings of the unaware protagonist. This also allows for them to be their own antagonist as what they might think can do harm to others. With that hidden plane of existence that none are aware of the use of rotoscoped shots will be overlaid over the “normal” day to day clips to show the disturbing reality some would think to exist. Eventually these planes clash and coexist when upon examining the protagonist in the mirror, he finally sees the inner self and lets it become the true reality upon which the film then ends.

Limitless – Video Art

Life goes beyond the grave/death. Even when people cease to exist on earth they are forever immortalized by the people who knew them well. The theme within both poems, Immortality (1963) by Unknown and Sonnet 23: Methought I saw my late espoused saint by John Milton, and in the movie Inception there are people talking, seeing, and chasing there beloved friends or family. Showing that life doesn’t completely end once you take your last breath, but transfers your existence into remnants of memory of feeling, hearing, and even seeing. What would tie these all together would be to have reality washed out with faded color and have the scenes of the dead “walking” amongst the living have vivid warm colors, to show that sometimes the only way people are happier is when they are still with the ones who are gone. And after we have accepted the reality of their death of flesh we can deal with the weight of breathing.

Peer Critique

Austin’s walking animation clearly depicts someone who is under some stress, however it is a little difficult to single out what exactly Norman is feeling, but I will say he has back pains. The arch of the back could be a little more if that is where he is reluctantly putting all his stress on. Also if Norman is leaving over with his arms that far on him his clavicle could look more engaged in this placement. The twining of the arms leave the character lacking a personality to appeal to or feel towards. The head being bent down so far reduces the amount of squash and stretch from his hunched steps even further keeping him looking dead, which works for this cycle, however; his head is too active bobbing way more than the body would allow follow through to occur. The animation itself looks like it has a frozen frame of animation stopping the flow of his walk too abruptly. When Norman is walking there are overlapping actions happening but they do not all have the same or close to the same amount of energy being put forth. The unequal timing of the footsteps was a nice touch to give his walk personality. However the timing of his hips needs some work, they react too abruptly to his movements, which calls for more spacing in between frames or less broad range in its motion. Still a nice start into Model Animation.
