Today is the third day of my production work, and its a long way to go.
I’ve been trying to keep this updated but its hard. Yet, I want to try to revive this platform and share more of my ideas and content. Sometimes I find it hard to get my head around to what I should develop all of this into, but somehow I will never succeed if I will postpone everyday for a better day. So to this I should try to maintain and equilibrium and become more fluid and fluent within the content that I post.
I’ve been still recording my days and somehow I want to share this with you guys. These images although they might seem quilted with some sort of tension, they have been the get away and instance of my constantly busy days, where I took a slide and a moment for myself. Me time. Absorbed by the work, and constant battle of developing creative things I find it hard to make a constant self persistence of myself. I will try.
Here is a sneak pick to the development of my thesis. The narrative as I explained before is about a guy nicknamed Brice, who takes himself into a journey in understanding his purpose and relevance within his quiet and voided world.
Initial design developments that I have undergone, through my post production development.
The concept art that I am eagerly developing. I hope this gives you an idea of what all of this is about and how I will develop and generate my content in.
I will be working on models in the coming week and as well I will kick off with my initial 2d animation development, hopefully keeping you updated more often. I will look forward for this, but for now salute!
For today’s agenda I shall talk about the aesthetic and narrative that I am developing so far. It’s a bit complicated but bare with me.
So as I said earlier before the narrative that I am exploring is that of an individual that is facing inner dilemma, and he escapes within the wonders of his inner childhood and dreams. It sounds complicated, and to some extent it is. Nonetheless, what I am trying to capture is an aesthetic that delineate and submerges well the scope and resonating factor of the medium in the context of the narrative.
This in all intent is possible, yet I am finding it hard to actually express it in solid 3d spaces. To this I have been considering shifting the essence of 3d aesthetic into something that is more 2d in a bear essence. This sounds awesome, but developing enough power to gain this is somewhat hard and I need a vibe of momentum that will ignite me to find something interesting within.
Looking through splendid work of Glenn Keane and his wonders, I was awestruck how such a 2d animator could evoke 3d elements even within the essence of flat planes.
I know that here there is something deep through which I should look closer. There is something deep, that if I analyse deeply I will find my way into expressing this confusion of thoughts that I have within my head.
What struck me the most was the sheer sympathy and love that this guy has to music. Unlike no other person he stood quietly, and elicited the beauty of music.
This is a good reminder that no matter what and how if the love to something is so big there can always a way of growing.
Animation makes me feel like I have never grew older. It takes me to places where the limitations is only the ones I put into. Looking into work such as Genndy Tartakovsky with his great ability to capture essence, I feel driven more than ever to develop and grow older in this medium.
The beautiful smears that this movie has within its motion, truly makes drives me to develop and understand further the beauty inside this.
‘Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle’
Looking back to where it all started one should be startled to realize that we all came from one foundation. Today I came across something an artifact that has been part of my past. Although it might not connote anything for some individuals, I believe that looking back into any past, one can trace and understand the essence and presence of being this present individuality.
There is a moment in this film, where you forget that its a movie and you get mesmerized within the wonders that lie within the french caves. Away and still these images narrate something more profound than any technological advancement in this current world. Although only through film one is able to perceive this beauty, one come to terms to realize that the most profound wonders lie within the simplicity of our hearts.
To this I was drawn to look and develop something that meant and created a meaningful venture within this development. Although I clueless immersed myself into this, I started to acknowledge powerful synergies within these paintings.
Synergies that took me back to my past. Where all I saw was magnified with my own perception. The funny thing is that I still find myself that same crazy kid from the inside despite the physical growth that I have undergone.
In this way is everything we do in life has a certain permanence to its unfolding?
Is it something that can never disappear or it is bound to be forgotten to the instance we think about doing it?
Sometimes you need to step away from what you re presenting and analyse to full extent what you would like to achieve with all of this work. Through the past months I have been working and developing my skills into becoming better and more proficient in what I do.
Rediscovering techniques, reanalyzing methods of practices I started to understand how much I still have to understand within this world that I live in.
From pitching, to project management, to Python and all the chaoticness that logic brings with, diverged into compositing and animation configurations, I have given myself time to learn and digest all the greatness that knowledge and time can offer.
The missions will soon take of to a new level of grandiosity. I belief that great things will come my way.
