For the animation “The Ugly Dinosaur”, I have the role of documentary director. Oscar, our main character, was inspired by a toy dinosaur found by the directors In the tradition of “making of” documentaries, it will show the processes used in the animation through footage and explanations from individual interviews. But what I personally would like to capture is the effect of the character of Oscar on the members of the project.
taking on the bulk of of the shooting, directing and editing myself, getting all of the shots/audio I have in mind together is taking a bit of time. To make sure I get all the material I need, the editing has not been the main focus ( WILL HAVE THINGS TO SHOW SHORTLY)). I do however have a break down of basic scenes and know the footage I need to capture. The majority of shooting will be complete by this following Tuesday to leave time for editing to meet the deadline
I have already shot a bit of team meetings as well as interviews with , the directors, on the how the idea came about, the initial visual ideas, and the concept of the main character Oscar and the morals that can be taken from his story. I plan on using that audio over footage through out the video, mainly the opening and ending, starting with the short explanation of how our “ugly dinosaur” was picked and footage of him.This week the main focus of shooting is interviews and film of each person working on their piece.
-Brief Explanation of how concept came
-title Opening credits, start with directors, short interview, then 5-8 second footage of each member of the project working on the animation with their name and role under
-footage of various team meetings, starting with guidelines fon characters backgrounds and colors, as well as shots of individuals working on backgrounds/animations/concept etc.,
-interviews on how each member feels about oscar,
-Brief footage from the final product, final words from the directors on Oscar
