I've been debating a lot of things about "Electric Loss" recently... not sure where to go except maybe forward. I hesitated to upload this yesterday morning, but revitalized by Jared's comments here it is. Version 7 of my progress. Theres additional animation, some replacements of animations to fit the mood a little more in some spots. Let me know what you guys think, it's important.
I decided to step back a bit and rework some of the backgrounds. I felt they were a bit static. I've also been getting this kind of cool look with white solid shades moving across colors and reflections... It makes it look extra purdy. Lol. So... yeah--I didn't do as much as I probably could have because I was debating on what to do.
I know that it also looks like you guys might not know where to contribute because I've been doing a lot of heavy lifting or possibly trying to steal the spotlight--but theres a lot that can still be done that I hope we all work together on this. Footage of singing or dancing, walking, riding cars or whatever you fancy can always be used. Rotoscoping if anyone is up for it is always appreciated--as a person who does it professionally, it means a lot to me if you do some roto. I could always use more designs for buildings, signs and maybe people too? Illustrators come up with some concepts, designers help flush them out, if not I can do some refining if need be. I'm still trying to find better ways to incorporate what people have already done for this collaboration as I've tried to remain inspired to do things because of the contributors. Granted it's not turning out exactly like one item or another, I think I'm doing the best I can to reach a safe grounding point for new ideas to emerge and continually bild off of.
Remember, These shots aren't timed perfectly and can always be edited. I purposely made them longer than need be so we can properly time them later. The only reason you're seeing things look like they go together is because I'm making it up as I go. If you're inspired with an idea for this, please let me know. I am totally willing to comprimise. A lot of these shots could use retouching or more elements. If you guys would like some of the elements seperated--thats a possibilty or even if you guys wanted the After Effects file--that's doable too!. Just make sure you download the appropreate resrouces. (I can only hope you guys carry powerful machines to work off of)
Also I stumbled across hitRECord's Tumblr to see that Electric Loss was featured on VH1--so keep it going guys! http://www.vh1.com/video/misc/828057/joseph-gordon-levitt-on-his-run-of-big-movies-at-the-box-office.jhtml#id=1692326
