The Day Outside

Introduction:

Hey! So for school, I had to create an animation or a cartoon and I did. But I also decided to post it on here for you guys to see. Up above, there are a few pictures of my project. They are called my storyboards. These storyboards helped me plan out my project. Written below, are my script and my developer's logs. My script has all the dialogue and actions of my animation. The developer's logs are short paragraphs of each reflection I did, when I worked on my project. Even further below, there is a link to my actual animation so go ahead and watch it. So, sit back, relax, click my video, and enjoy!

Developer's Log:

Session 1: Wednesday 3/11 @School: Steps 1-6
I exceeded my schedule for session 1. I found it was quite easy for me to do these steps, so I managed to do an extra one. I ended up taking less time for these things and I had no problems.

Session 2: Friday 3/13 @School: Steps 7-12
I went below my schedule for session 2 by 5 steps. I didn’t realize how hard it was to keep going back and forth to have the characters speak to one another. I had to have them say, then broadcast it, then have the other character receive it, and vise versa. This took longer than expected so thats why I didn’t complete my schedule. Next time I should bank more time for speech and backgrounds.

Session 3: Saturday 3/14 @Home: Steps 12-24
I fulfilled my goal today because I was able to complete all the steps I planned to do in my schedule. It took a little longer than expected but I was still able to finish all of them with very few problems.

Session 4: Sunday 3/15 @Home: Steps 25-47
Today, I actually went over my scheduled steps because I found I had more time then I planned. This helped because it allowed me to complete more steps for my project. Although I had a few problems, I solved all of them real quick so it did not take up time.

Session 5: Monday 3/16 @Home: Steps 48-50
I was able to complete all steps I planned for today because yesterday I went over my plan. This was my last time working on this project. During this session I was able to finish up the last details of my project and complete my evaluate section.
