Today we had our mid-week critique, we received some really good criticism and we are super excited on how its turning out. Above are my pieces so far. We had decided on having the video in a Instagram format from a persons perspective. So for this we each created images that we’d put together in a fake Instagram to scroll through. It would be like looking into the life of someone who lives there. In the critique our tutors loved the idea and thought it linked into our previous theme of online personas. They suggested that we include little creepy things in the pictures to suggest the hidden secrets to Iceburg that would leave the audience curious. As I am making the pictures of Eira and she is computer generated, I wanted to put glitches into her pictures to show that there is something not right about her. I may even make a very small video as they have short 5 seconds videos in Instagram. It would break it up from all the pictures. Our tutors also suggested a better way to film this, by making a real Instagram and filming someone on their phone it would take out a lot of the animation that we weren’t sure on how to do. By doing this I think it will come out a lot better and we’d be able to achieve so much more in this short space on time.
My plans now are to create one still image of Eira have a slight glitch or something very subtle but curious. Also making one 5 second video of Eira moving and having a glitch, this I’m more nervous for as I’m not the best at animating but I look forward to see how it will turn out.
