I've been trying to find an amateur stop motion short I watched on the old animateclay page from around 2005/2006 I think.
It was a black and white silent film with subtitles and comical music in the background, it was probably 3 to 5 minutes long. It was a dark comedy and started with a father figure opening the fridge to a flickering light bulb. The camera pans by a girl sitting at a kitchen table tapping her fingers impatiently. The father tries to suggest a variety of things to eat to his uninterested daughter. After numerous suggestions he finally stabs her in the head with a spoon and ends up eating her for breakfast. I remember the characters being creepy/ blob like but were also simply made and the armature wire shown through their fingers and such. I can't remember the name of the short but it was something simple like "Breakfast Time" or something like that. Any one have any ideas?
After Effects....... looks like it would work for the Animatic but Adobe has (Adobe Animation CC) and that would be better choice its more like editing software. There is (Storyboarder) [
] its free or I use (StoryBoard Pro) [
] it does a good job outputting Animatics as well as the story board thumbnails but its not free in fact the price has gone sky high Any animation software or Video editing software can be used to make a Animatic it is just a simple Animation, You will have too find the right software that works best for you and affordable. Good thing is there has never been so many free or Open software out there.
One other peace of software I can mention is OPENTOONZ, 100% free, Open Source Uses X sheets, great tool for Storyboarding and Animatics and Animations in general but It is so
hard to master, its not something just any one can just hop into and get the results they would like to see.
Yes that helped out alot!!! Thank you very much. Wound after effects be a good one?
There's different ways people do or set this up. I would Story board the project then make an Animatic of the Video from start to finish adding voices and any Sound FX that are important to the animations timing. You can also use an older method, the X-Sheet (Exposure sheet) its very handy. Then you Could Start work on the animation, scene by scene using the Animatic as a guild with its part of the sound track loaded into DF. Once the parts are finished edit the scenes together in software Such as Sony Vegas or some other peace of software. This is where all the sounds, FX, voices are moved around to fit and then rendered out as a final Video.
Hope that helps
