using dragonframe:

  • relatively simple process, had most trouble with seeing when things were in focus –> solved this by zooming into screen and using focus cue cards on the set to ensure focus
  • kept aspect ratio at 2.39:1 cinemascope to create cinematic effect for animation

filming on set setup:

  • setting laptop on higher table allowed whole team to see filming process and identify any problems (hands in shot, blutack/tape sticking out, movement of props
  • ideally would have set placed on a higher table as the height was too low, had to stoop all the time to adjust and animate puppets
  • having large scale storyboard

  • animating process: tried to set up teams for rota filming but ended up more effective to just stay as a unit for longer periods of time without switching and setting up/packing up

  • whiteboard planning and writing lists/schedules really helped us to stay on task + communicate between groups in morning/afternoon when people weren’t around
  • clear filming list daily in chronological order so whoever was filming would know instantly what needed to be filmed

  • storyboard – was always being edited and re-edited, shots taken out and shots added to fit story chronology better
  • crossing off shots after they were filmed to keep on track of progress
