For this assignment we were to create a title sequence from a brief, our group chose to do ‘radio to screen’ which is making a title sequence based on a radio play.
Overall I think the final video is pretty great! There are so many little things that I’d like to have tweeked, such as timings & FX just so it all looks a little more professional, but this project combined with all the other projects we had this year (plus some discord within the group itself) left us pretty stuck for time, so it wasn’t possible to make this look as good as it could have been…
My role in the group was Director, and Animator. All the animations were made in Celaction, and I made all the puppets
Been pretty busy lately working on my Title Sequence project. This is the biggest project I’ve ever worked on in a group, and I cannot put into words how happy I am that I’m working in a team and not alone, because something like this I’d never be able to manage alone.
Our group chose to create the title sequence of a radio show called “Paradise Lost in Cyberspace”, a british comedy set in a dystopian future where once you reach the age of 70 you are to willingly kill yourself (by taking a suicide pill), otherwise the age police will do it for you. Despite how dark it may sound, it’s actually really funny, very reminiscent of Blackadder with it’s humour.
The images below are the final concept arts images of the main characters featured in the opening. The original character concepts were designed by one of my team mates, then I chose what style we’d work with and adapted the character designs into that style. The radio play gives very little description of the character’s appearances, except one, Andrea Sunbeam (the yellow one) who is described as wearing only a bikini and having a yellow polka-dot gun holster. The style is very different to what I’m used to working with but it’s something I knew we had to have as it would work well for the title sequence.
