Floating city and animating practice!

More recently in the project based around the concept of a floating building/city, modelling was put into action! We agreed as a team that a street view, basic rooms and the actual concept should be modelled! I personally started the modelling of the street view, following and watching the tutorial below;

And so on.. Below is the final outcome! I’m pretty happy with it, as a beginner i did find it hard at times and had problems with a few things. This week we’ll hopefully get more building’s added, lamp posts, cars, and other things to furnish it as well as adding textures, lighting and camera’s.

I also started to practice trying to convey body language in characters, which will greatly help with our next project for New Narratives. I downloaded the free Flour sack rig and tried to convey the emotion of sadness, happiness and anger;

We also started to look at different ways to presenting the data we got on Belfast and added facts and statistic’s about Belfast in the bus tour video;

Looking up on data visualisation, it’s a way to communicate information in hopefully the easiest possible way! Which is something my team want to incorporate into this project! Looking through information found on the internet it was obvious the visuals were more effective than just writing down the statistic’s below are some graphs we found online;

The simplistic style is easy to understand and hold a lot of information! Although as a team we kind of leaned toward charts and infographics, but I found this link below of different software, websites, etc used that help show information in different ways too;    http://www.creativebloq.com/design-tools/data-visualization-712402

I also found these video’s below really interesting!

The video above, is kind of something more advanced in style to show information through video. Kind of what we tried to do with the documentary of the Belfast tour bus.

On top of all this we gathered as a group to manage the project better! Sorcha had took it upon herself to create a plan for the plan! She’s done a lot of research into planning and management, teamwork and how should teams go about projects. We ended up making a priority list!
