    Animation I Final

    Hey,

    Just finished up my first undergrad Animation class in December....had to produce a 20 second short as our final, no more no less. Would love some thoughts on my short :

    CRAPPY QUALITY, FAST YOUTUBE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76SOe...e=channel_page

    GOOD QUALITY, SLOW QUICKTIME: http://www.nateswinehart.com/somethingwickedrevise1.mov

    Everything was drawn by hand, scanned into Harmony and colored. Wish I had more freedom with the timing, but pretty happy with the results. Empowered girls ftw.

    Hey, that's very good!

    I do have two questions, one, why did you use Harmony? If you made this yourself?

    And two, where do you go to school?

    Thanks Mystical Chocobo

    Our assignment was to plan out a 20 second short, draw it by hand, scan into Harmony and color/piece it together there.

    And I go to Columbus College of Art and Design

    Very nice work

    I'm sorry for my ignorance,
    but what is this Harmony you're talking about?

    Thanks liolev

    Well, I guess maybe our prof just refers to it as Harmony and our school comps list it as that so I've gotten used to it calling it that, but it's toonboom software, and I think the version we're working with is Digital Pro?

    Yeah, it's pretty much Toon Boom Digital Pro, only Harmony is set up for a network of people. Which is what prompted my question, why did you use Harmony RATHER than Digital Pro? Seeing as how you made this yourself?

    Ah, I see. Well our system at school doesn't have both programs, so everyone uses Harmony whether they are collaborating or working solo. I haven't noticed any drawbacks to it thusfar...

    Though I did get the free trial of Digital Pro for my home computer, just to get a better feel for how the program works. It lasts forever but you can't export anything worthwhile cause of the watermark

    Nice animation I can see you have a feel for it

    Few things though:
    1: it looks more sketchy then finished
    2: When the camera zooms in on the faces of the villains (cheshire cat right?) it acts awkward. You rotate to the left and to the right and that gives the camera a fake digital editing edge.

    last small crit: I dont think its nessecary to zoom in on the first shot (overall view). I believe you can keep it still, and then zoom out as you did in the second shot (Alice grabbing her bag).
    In the directingworld its almost a golden rule to not zoom out after a zoom-in.

    The animation in its self is actually really good.
    I hope i helped a bit. Sorry for my crappy english btw.
