Next we're getting a visit from Luke Mistruzzi, Creative Director / Animator at Powerline Films and former Cuppa Coffee stop-motion animator.
As I detailed in my email, Luke has arranged for us to tour Cuppa Coffee!
We'll have to go over in small groups. Meanwhile, you guys can get started on your projects:
Milestone 1: Planning
Due: 02/02/12 In class (next week)
% of final grade: 20%
Create a detailed plan for your project. Please keep your ideas simple and contained. You should include:
- a production schedule,
- a storyboard and/or animatic,
- a drawing of your set plan including top-down view, and
- a drawing of your puppet including a plan for the armature.
- technically challenging R&D should be included here such as green screen, plans for moving characters that fly or jump
You would be wise to include a 'plan b' in case you run behind schedule.
Exemplary: Thoroughly planned, detailed and clear presentation with all aspects of the project well organized. Timelines seem reasonable, solutions to technical challenges anticipated.
Excellent: Well-planned, clear overall package with most aspects of the project well organized. Timelines outlined and solutions to most technical challenges anticipated.
Acceptable: Overall plan of the project completed with minimal missing elements. Timelines suggested and some technical challenges outlined.
Not Acceptable: Project not thoroughly planned. Timelines vague, missing elements, not much anticipation of technical challenges.
