I finished roughing out my animation with music today: First draft of Cthulhu trailer. I’m not really satisfied with the music, it feels way too calm, although it’s possible that to someone who hasn’t been editing this together, it makes sense. It also needs secondary animation and better transitions for the pictures (and maybe not having the ripple throughout)… Which means I have to think of some secondary animation for it. :( I’m more pleased with this than some of my previous motion graphics projects, but I’m still not very impressed. I’ll stick to interactive design.
Either way, I have the first draft roughed out (yay!) and tonight I’m super excited about going to see Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing auf Deutsch (“Viel Lärm um Nichts”). It’s one of my favorites with all the quips that Benedict and Beatrice trade :P I know it’s hard to understand Shakespeare if you’re not familiar with the old-fashioned language, so I’m a little worried about whether there will be a similar problem in German, but we’ll see.
