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....

...just few days back i was watching finding nemo (again) ...in one of that particular shot when nemo is taken to school you can see lot of movements going on there ...i mean there are good chances that you may miss some of movements ...how necessary is then putting such elements ?
