This is my first animation and I can't believe it's finally done. It took me three weeks - a week and a half to make the tram and rolling backgrounds and stop motion elements, a long Saturday to film the whole lot and the last week to edit. Phew!
I just have to work out how to show it in my crit tomorrow now... fingers crossed for some nice feedback, not just comments on my slightly dodgy steering of the tram! Wish me luck!
Well, the crit went pretty well, my tutor suggested adding a few extra sounds like the noise of children playing, as if the tram were passing a schoolyard or something. So I might do that. Also it was suggested that I get rid of the two people filling up towards the end, as I have already introduced the idea of people being represented by dots so it kind of "confuses the visual language". Something to think about anyway. Thanks so much for all your lovely comments!
