I've always wanted to have another pass at this one... I've made a handful of subtle and not so subtle changes. The big difference is I've stayed in tight on the characters while they speak. Mostly because the tiny films on TBoTS eBooks are very small, and I want people to see their facial expressions. I've also chosen to accentuate the dialogue above the music instead of behind it like in the original version. Plus there's a textured background in this version.
Still makes me laugh :p
This is very rough... I was curious to see how this concept looked. Also, I recorded the VO into an iphone, so if anyone wants to have a proper go at it, please do.
Somewhere, in this vast universe,
there grows a boy.
And somewhere in that boy,
grows a vast universe.
(I tweaked Joe's remix ever so slightly)
I've been told there might be a chance this film will get a screening during the upcoming tour, and I was asked to alter some of the titles and credits... So naturally it was a good opportunity to go back and make a few other improvemets.
Apart from the adjusted opening and end credits, I've subtly tweaked some of the animation of the girls, especially the one on the right. I've also included another tighter shot on both of them mid-way through their conversation, and added some background noise to fill in some of the audio gaps... These aren't huge changes, but overall it plays a bit smoother now.
The background noise might sound a bit weird if you don't have proper speakers, so if you do, please use them.
Again, as always, looks much better downloaded.
