I reshot some footage, namely the section where the cat carries the bell out of the window. I did this because the knitting needle should be easy to take out - this section was shot on a tripod (unlike the rest of the footage - I might add shake to it in post so that it’s not out of place) and I also shot a few seconds where nothing happens so that I can easily mask the needle and my arm out.
I also added in a section as Ceri waits for the kettle to boil. I will need to remove my reflection from the kettle in that section, and the objects on the countertop are slightly different but hopefully that won’t be obvious.
Finished my essay this morning so i’ve moved onto the gui designs for our bfx pitch. Still need to animate it, though each person is about 30seconds long so i’ll have to keep animation to a minimum. Its starting to look ok, though it still needs quite a bit of work, and i’ll need to show it to the team to see if they like it
Kat those are awesome :) I’ll finish the individual sections as soon as I can so that I can pass them on to you
Showreel aw yeah
It doesn’t really have everything in it, and this is because I chose to focus it more toward the roles I’ll be taking on at the BFX competition, if me and my team are chosen.
I haven’t graded this at all, I’ve just denoised the clips that aren’t too dark.
The problem I’m getting now is the … halo-y artifacts in the areas that were noisy, and I’m not sure how to go about fixing that. Maybe I’ll have to leave the grain in.
Argh! I’ve denoised most of the clips and the render time has gone up from 1 minute to half an hour! gaaaahhh.
I really want to see how much better it will look, so I’ll have to wait.
I might need to reshoot the parts with the bell - those parts were really hard to coordinate during shooting) - and I’m going to add in some shots while Ceri’s meant to be waiting for the kettle to boil, but I’ll have to wait for the morning before I can do those now.
I’m just about to mess with the lengths of some of the clips, but there’s not much to do there really. For a rough cut, I went into a fair amount of detail editing this one.
I’m also going to denoise and maybe do my first round of grading.
