MAD-AGASCAR-2

First of all, I'm thankful to my room-mate who got me the ticket for the preview of Madagascar-Escape 2 Africa. I was fortunate to be among some crazy lads from Dreamworks.I know you are least interested in this stuff. so here is, What I feel about the Movie.

I'll say 'Average' but worth watching once. Mr. I.S mathur ( NID professor ) once told us in our Film Language session that more and more sugar makes Poison.This movie is very good example of his statement.
So many things are happening there. Alex story is going on at one place, Melvin & Goria cooking something else, Martin at another place, Penguin are busy in their own world, New yorkers in their own, one villain ( New Character ) in his own and around 5-6 new character are also popping in to GET FAMOUS.
I will say Madagascar was far better as they had one concentrated story about someone or about a Group. But in Madagascar-2 I'm still trying to figure out that, this story is about whom.
I want to talk about many things but then you guys will curse me for disclosing it.

But there are so many thing which I won't forget to appreciate. Movie is full with Gags. Animation is Super Cool. So precisely I will say worth watching Once.

And yes there are few guys who liked the movie to the core. So its Individual thing and this is what I feel about it. I would love to listen from someone who disagree with me. So that I might see another perception.

animation monster logo storyboard






hey guys i thought up a small li'l story for the animation monster logo. i storyboarded it, so do tell me what u felt about it and suggest changes. plz DO NOT pay attention to the drawings... they suck!! anyway here's what happens (incase my drawings are worse than i thought!!):

1. an empty set
2. monster guy comes in
3. falls down flat
4. dusts himself
5. sees audience, gets embarrassed
6. looks right-left, sees a board onto his left
7. directs the audience's attention to it
8. tries to pull it out casually
9. realises the board is stuck
10. pulls hard
11. pulls even harder
12. falls flat on the ground
13. gets up in a flash angrily
14. ROARSSSSS at the board!!
15. the board panics and gets scared
16. it starts moving
17. ...right to the middle of the screen
18. monster guy relaxes

personally i'm not too happy with the ending. it changes his whole character. that's what quite a few seniors have told me too! so i'm lookin for ideas. do suggest some! thanks!

VISUAL ELEMENTS

No doubt audience watch any film, play or short by his own will. But while watching any artwork or movie, its not their choice what they look at, and what should be ignore. its an onus on Film maker to direct audience eyes...instead of letting them wander in whole screen...or even out of screen if you lucky to have one hot chick next to you... :)

And as we all know Animator are story-teller..so its becomes more important to us use Visual Elements intelligently.
Here is few element I want to share with you guys.

SHARPNESS & BLUR
I'm sure most of will be knowing of this.One of the basic element, Figure of lesser importance in frame goes out of focus from eye.

Our eyes attract more towards the figure, which is comfortable for eyes....Its natural thing.

LIGHTING
Do I need to say Anything ?


EXTREME CLOSE UP

Any distraction ? No...so do I need to say anything here?

When you don't want to say anything then why the hell you are here Kasana.... >:

Ok..Ok No offence here is another.. :)

STATIC V/s MOVING
See this particular shot in Ratatouille, In whole frame, share of Remy & his brother is almost nil. But still we don't distract from them... no doubt lighting also have his piece of cake.
Cause in whole composition, everything is static except Remy & Co. and our eyes attracts more towards moving objects. Again natural thing...not my fault.

EXCEPTIONS ALWAYS THERE !
But if the movements are general part of movements & flow then moving object do not distract our eyes but dramatically add to the static objects.So you need to be wise.So have milk & be smart.. :)

Huaaa....
