Hello! So right now we are doing an animation project. My teammates are Isaac and Alina. Isaacs character traits are that he is clumsy and indecisive. We are going to exaggerate these traits in our animation by making Isaac a kid who has 2 emotions in his head (Alina and I), and he can't pick between us. Alina is a big perfectionist. She wants everything to be neat and organized. I am a procrastinator and I don't really care about what other people think. I'm messy and very unorganized. In our animation, Alina and I are opposites and we need to work together to solve problems.
One of the requirements is to add humor into our animation. The way we did this was by really exaggerating our character traits to a point where it is somewhat funny. We also tried to add in some humorous dialogue. Our animation has a couple of life lessons. One of them is that you don't have to be perfect. Another one is that you have to work together to solve your problems. I think that a lot of people can relate to this because many people don't like the people they work with, but sometimes you just have to deal with it.
When picking teams, we had to work with new people that we have never worked with before. I think that we work together great. We all shared our ideas and opinions, and tried to combine everyone's ideas into our animation. I feel like we started to get more productive as the deadline started to get closer and closer. We got a little more familiar with puppet warp towards the end of the project and were able to animate a little faster. I think our biggest challenge was that sometimes not all of us were here. I was absent a couple of days and so was Isaac. Another challenge was that other GT kids from other periods use the same computer as you, so if you wanted to work on it during recess you really had to fight for your spot. I think our best moments were putting our animations together in iMovie because it was pretty cool seeing it match with the voice overs. Something that looks like just random people moving their arms and legs has now becoming an entire story.
What's up people!
