Camera Set Up & Screen Shots (Part 2)

In continuation from a previous blog update, I placed more cameras for various scenes in the environment. Please keep in mind the following screen shots are test renders at a low resolution.

Here we have the Canoe Man and his dog walking along the sidewalk of George’s home. (I left them in their default poses just for placement purposes.) You can see little George gazing out the window in the distance.

In this screen shot, we have George in mid-air; jumping for his leash on the hook rack. Because this scene is not animated yet, it seems very posed due to the lack of motion blur. Once I do start key frame animating, motion blur will definitely be a plus!

After George grabs his leash, he patiently sits in front of his owner so they can go for a walk outside.

In this screen shot, we see George’s reaction to the sudden change in weather outside. The Owner wasn’t originally in the shot, but due to the placement, I thought it worked well. I can animate her legs as if she’s shocked as well.

The camera suddenly zooms out to the view of the house surrounded by water. We also have the secondary characters (in default poses for placement once again) on the canoe. Rowing down the “road.” (I will be adding rain when keyframe animating begins for this scene.)

George happily walks outside! But..

…he’s actually on a treadmill.

These are the main cameras that I needed to place. The other cameras tests (i.e. 12-15) are the same camera placements but with different animations. There are a few things I have to do, such as the animation logo design, promotional poster design, and render, and of course the test animations. So please expect those elements in later updates!

Thanks for viewing!
