For a (experimental) shortmovie I am working on I did an animation of a ship. It is evening, we hear seagulls, camera points down from a great height, coming near the ship, tilting down to the black sea (thats the point were I cut it to real footage shot from a real ship). After that shot we jump inside the boat and the soundlayer (seagulls, horn) tells us we are now inside the ship. So you can say it is an establishing shot that should:
-set the mood for the film
-tell people were the rest of the action takes place
-what time of day it is
I think it worked out quite well, but now its your turn ; )
You can wath the video on youtube - watch in 1080p if supported:
People said “whow that guy must have rich parents for him to hire a helicopter” :RocknRoll: But what does your (more trained) eyes think? And the seagulls - are they realistic enough (first time using bones, first time using boids - in fact it is my first serious blender thing I did). I am not sure. Also I don’t know if the sea is okay without foam (just didn’t get it ‘right’ with my cycles shading).
What do you guys think?
Edit: Color corrction is not finished
