Happy New Year everyone.
Its already 2 month since my last post, but that doesn't mean I sit idle okay. I'm currently working on a personal project, which is a 2D animation, which is similar to japanese anime. The plans starts since last august as far as I can remember, but while the production start, I always go back to the planning stage. This is because I want to make sure that the story is good enough, the storyboard is working so that the animation can be accepted by the audience.
The story part is always my weakness. I want to create a sci-fi kind of story but due to the animation length constrains, the story need to be revised back and forth to make sure audience can understand. I'm working alone, so the longest animation that I can do with at least the same quality as the japanese anime may be quite short, maybe around 20-30 minute.
Last time my friend from facebook has refered me to a training set by a a goverment agency, named Multimedia Development Corporation (MDEC), under trade name CGSkill. They provide a free class which are Pre-Production, Games art and 3D Animation. The training offer came right on the time as I just graduated from my Uni, but then I have to choose only one.
I decided to take the offer, and I choose Pre-Production. The reason is that I dedicated to develop my own 2D anime styled animation and those other two courses are more to 3D. Pre-Production covers Scripting and Storyboarding which is essential for creating an animation. Im not sure whether they covers the concept art and model sheet but they do said they have sketching class.
Anyway I still have a long way to go, and this is just a beginning.
Anyway, thanks for reading and have a great days ahead!
