*For these animation tests, choose a background scene from Kevin Maistros’ stunning rough cut (http://www.hitrecord.org/records/1643359) and animate your dancer on top.
*This currently just a rough cut and may change before the final version. We can use them for these animation tests, but if you were planning on animating the whole thing, it's probably best to wait until we lock the timing and colour etc.
*The dancer designs should follow the mixed media aesthetic established by Jason Angeleone’s...
Since this is shot at 4k, there's a lot of room to play around with scale and cropping in a 1080p deliverable - This is using the 1080p version of the footage though.. so it's up-rezed when scaling up.. I put in a very quick and basic grade, just to give it some sort of mood rather than film-log...
I intend to replace the blown-out skies with a custom sky that is then depth-blurred to match focus. Please don't use this version to do any serious animation work on top of.. there's probably gonna be changes! - I just wanted to see how it would look all cut together.
Couldn't choose between two really fantastic musical arrangements that have come in so far to the collab so I just decided to put both on top of each other and see what happens.
Please feel free to download it for a much better view. Last thought for now - a subtle touch of floating dust particles and some volumetic lighting added in after the animation work is done... just..... magic.
