OK so we are almost there! Xmas break isnto too far away and everyone is busy working to get their work done good luck to all :D

Ok so i have now finnished my experimental!
heres the final thing :D

Over the past few weeks we have all be working on our experimental animations. for my experimental project i used cut ous inspired by Russian Constructivism. While i was in college i was hugely influenced by Russian Constructivism with their great use of shapes and angels this influenced me greatly in my college work and now i have done this project im happy that i could use constructivism as a focused point again.
During the project i had many ups and downs i encountered many problems e.g. the dope sheets, i didn't have a clue how to produce a dope sheet so this was hard. after about 4 days of development from my ideas to choosing the audio and then Finlay creating the dope sheet.
after doing several tests i thought about doing something completely different, after i spoke to Kathy she said that maby this wasn't the kind of animation that is suited for me and that this "wasn't me" i took her advice and i did about 30 seconds worth of animation to the same dope sheet however when i went to export it the images were all messed up and Monkey Jam wouldn't convert them so i was stuck. after that problem i decided to go back and Re do my first idea and that is my final animation.
after i created the animation and i added the audio i noticed that the timing was off and this really made me feel low. I guess it was because i messed up the dope sheet, i think that next time i do something like this i will have to understand dope sheets more and get an understanding about how they work. I am happy with the final out come alot of work went into it and i think the final outcome looks inspired by Russian Constructivism.
If i could do the project again i would double check the dope sheets gain and again until the timing is right and i would possibly try another form of animation like Kathy suggested. Like i said i had fun doing this im not 100% sure if it works however i was experimenting and it was alot of fun.

over the past few days i have been thinking/worrying alot about my experimental project.
this isn't good, i don't know why but i find myself thinking more and more than i wont get it done on time. i find myself saying to myself "if you think like that i wont get it done on time" so i have to stop.

over the past few days i have been a head case, thinking what can i do? how can i do it? how they hell does the dopesheet work!? i think what i have to do tomorrow is just sit down and just do it.

i have a rough idea
about what im going to do and i have a rough plan of how im going to do it.
so i guess its not all bad :)

Hello baby.

You kept your blogger signed in on my laptop, and I was about to blog when I noticed it was on yours...
anyway, I miss you loads. even though you've just left my house.. i still miss you. Your laugh, your smile, your hyperness in the mornings, your touch, your smell. I just miss you and everything about you. I'm sorry for all the shit that's been going on lately, and I'm glad we've been honest with each other now and said things that needed to be said and sorted out.
I just want to say how amazing you are, and how madly and deeply I'm in love with you. Everytime I see you I fall a little bit harder & it's getting harder and harder to say goodbye when we have to leave each other. :(
I'm so happy that I'm with you, and I want us to stop arguing and getting angry at things now please. Because I love you, and I feel physically sick when I think about me losing you. I love you, I love everything about you.
Lots of love, your girlfriend..
Dominique Frances Sharp.

This week i have been back to Malta.. (great timing darrien -_-') my mother booked this holiday about a year ago due to the fact that its my cousins wedding :)
it is the first time i have been to Malta in 15 years and i got to meet my farther i havent seen him in 12 years so it was a big deal for me. i also got to meet my brothers and sisters for the first time :D

im really angry that i have had a week off when i know my team mates have been working their butts off on our old man animation. im really worried that im falling behind with work and stuff :(
i have kept myself busy working on sketches for about a hour a day but i don't want to fall behind and get kicked out of the group. i feel that they are all going to be off with me when i get back and i dont want them to because there all really awesome ^^

pluss im a complete noob when it comes to flash and i don't want to hold anyone behind because the deadline is coming up D: i think over the summer holidays im going to work work work!!!

animation is one of the most important things in my life i really love it ^^ but im still a novice when it comes to animating im ok when it comes to drawing and colour just timing is a big problem and the programs are hard too.
however on a more positive note me and my gf broke up :D so i can now focus on work and friends!

thus giving me more time to work my real job and time to work on my course :)

i really cant wait till next September i cant wait to live with my best friends!
