Hello all, just wanted to create a thread to track my progress on this project.
This will be my first serious animation, and I’m expecting to learn a lot of new things in order to see it come to life! I wanted to make a small animation, but to attempt a fairly high production quality. Since I’m fairly inexperienced with Blender, I wanted to avoid a lot of detailed character animation, and certainly wanted to avoid syncing facial animations to dialogue. The simplest way for me to achieve this goal is by creating the short in the format of a movie trailer. I will be creating a 90 second trailer with music, sfx, and a voiceover.
The concept for the trailer is still a little loose, but essentially it is about the dawn of the age of vikings, and the beginning of their raids on the coast of Britain. Because of the format of the trailer, I should be able to do quick cuts from shot to shot, thereby eliminating any drawn out scenes.
I had started work on some weapons for this project (thread here), but decided that I needed a new thread to properly reflect the actual goal of the project.
I will be posting various work as I plan and make progress. Comments and advice are always welcome!
