Well, my movie has been done now for a couple of weeks and I finally got around to posting it. So, thats me with the stack of 1887 frames I had to trace for my Intro to Video final. For those who dont know what rotoscoping is, ill give you a quick run-down. Basically, its tracing over film. I shot the original footage myself, edited it, and then exported the movie into jpeg files. I printed the frames out, punched holes in the top with the animation hole puncher, and then layed a blank sheet on top and traced the figures. I ended up using about 50 black Prismacolor color pencils. The entire project took me about a month and im really glad its done. I didn't go out on the weekends and didn't get much sleep while working on this project. My friend Bryan Tims from my school helped me out with a couple of scenes. He took on about 8 seconds of animation and did a fantastic job adapting to the style I was working in. I had to make a quick way of drawing the frames and tried not to spend more than 3 minutes per drawing. Some scenes took longer than others, especially the scenes with 2 figures.
I used the song "Go It Alone" by Beck from the album Guero.
The actors in the video are my brother Jeff Guimond, my girlfriend Nicole Duran, my roomate Dylan Barrett, and myself for a second..
Well here it is.. Id love to hear some feedback from you guys!
