|Look quite innocent, don't they?|
Here are some shots from the editing process.
These are some of the close up shots of the 'dead' jelly baby. Sad times. The top image contains a screen grab of all the still shots taken. And the left part of that screen is where Final cut pro is open to begin the editing the process.
The initial task we were given was one person enters a room, sits down opposite another person and exchange a few lines. Doesn't that sound...well boring? To make it interesting we did some brainstorming and came up with the idea of making the scene like an interrogation because someone died. Morbid, right? We weren't gonna show you how the person died, no way. Just plenty of close ups of them dead. Then in comes a witness. Or are they really? We then skip to the 'witness' going to the interrogation room, where we use several different shots to add lots of suspense. Then the 'witness' sits down and has the smallest of small conversations with the interrogator.
With limited resources for our animatic we had to make the props and scenes out of paper. This resulted in the jelly babies falling off the improvised paper chair evey time we tried to make it sit. It was hilarious. I wasn't there to take the shots, but by the looks of it my other team emebers had a blast.
