DALEK VERSUS GOLLUM
Have you ever imagined what would happen if you brought together a Dalek and Gollum?
Well, we have. And not only that. Jojo, Joe and Mark have animated it!
Voice over was by Ollie and Joe. Mark edited the animation and added the background and music effects. For this animation we used the higher resolution camera.
TRAFFIC WARDEN GLADIATOR
This is the third part of the series Traffic Wardens through Time produced by the Seniors during the Autumn term 2006, to try out the facilities of the new animation studio.
The three parts of the series were modelled, animated and filmed by Joe, Mark, Jojo and Ollie. Voice over was done by Joe and Ollie, with Mark directing the recording. Mark selected the backgrounds, did the editing, and added special effects.
The filming was done using the ‘blue screen’ facility in the new animation studio. Figures were modelled solely from plasticine without using metal armatures. The camera used was a low resolution webcam (fortunately we now have a better one!). Backgrounds were superimposed onto the animation using computer software. The same software was used to insert voice and music, and to add special effects.
The scene in the film is set in Roman times. Our traffic warden is caught dreaming of a gladiator fight, but day dreaming has consequences…
EXPLORING UNKNOWN WORLDS
‘Exploring Unknown Worlds’ is the first Juniors animation production. It displays a series of 3D worlds created from scratch together with a series of rockets during exploration flights across these unknown worlds. The scenes were developed as part of the ‘Animation’ Activity Crew during Autumn 05.
