Extended Deadlines are the Best

Good news, I can sleep tonight. After all that stress about making the deadline for the Pond5 Title Sequence contest this week they extended the contest till the 30th!!! I CAN SLEEP GUYS. SLEEEEEEEP. Which is important because I have a lot of networking opportunities tomorrow…after the 4 I’ve already done this week….so much follow up. I’m so tired, but having so much fun. Denver Startup Week is so amazing!

Since the contest is extended I halted my hasty animating. Now I can focus on making good animations and finessing, rather than rushing. Still going to hustle and get more animation done tonight, but now I can stop at a reasonable time like midnight. There’s no need for me to look and feel like my animation right now.

Here’s a short preview. Ignore the real cursor. If it wasn’t obvious I was prepared for a long night considering how tired I’ve been from Startup Week. Glad I can relax a little bit. Still got tons to do, but now I can have better animation!!!

More Vectors | Title Sequence Process

Why is furniture shopping so tiring? I spent half my day at IKEA…I’m tired. But getting closer to finished with those vectors. I’m slowly becoming a morning person so I’ll do my best to wake up early to finish the vectoring tomorrow. It’d be nice if I can start animating before midnight tomorrow…I might shorten the animation due to time constraints…Or like I said yesterday, abandon sleep.

BookTube-A-Thon Title Sequence WIP

Working on my title sequences for my BookTube-A-Thon TBR. I was aiming to enter the giveaway for a box of books, but I realized that I didn’t have enough time to finish. So here’s the process of the lettering so far. I’m in the middle of the vectoring and have to still animate it a bit. Not to mention edit all the video I filmed today. Planning on doing some more takes tomorrow. I don’t know if I said this before, but I’m using this as a test run for my Selfi Animation, also, it’s been fun diving into more lettering.

I have a lot to do tomorrow so hoping that I can finish this up and get it done by the end of tomorrow so I don’t have to worry about it. I’m trying to get ahead this week so that I can allot more time to reading next week.

Vectored Ideas

I have more lettering pieces that I’ve been working on for my selfi mograph, but I’m still trying to vector everything. I keep thinking “Today’s the day I can start animating” and then I realize that I haven’t even finished the vectoring part. It’s just a long project that I’m working hard on, and have to keep reminding myself that it takes a lot of time.

Here’s a few icons that I’ve vectored so far, but I’m still perfecting them.

I have a very specific idea for how I want to animate them into each other. The icons are suppose to follow the script that says ‘from books to film to tv  to…’ I want the animation to be very fluid, but I just haven’t gotten to it yet. Been working on the lettering too much. Gotta find the balance between creating all these assets and actually getting my project done pretty quickly here.

So more designs to come soon with this. I’ve recently updated my techniques so I’m hoping that will speed things up. Anyway, I need to get back to writing for NaNo Wrimo, so more updates later!
