Here's a cryptic image to illustrate what I've been working on over the last week. This is art from a series of animations that correlate parallax error in photography to built-in parallax in the artist's eye. This image is simply decoration, not self-explanatory, so don't agonize over understanding it.
Here's the news: I just finished all rough placement of my initial voice over and animation for the section on parallax in my measuring dvd. This is major. This section is the crux of the entire video. Throughout the dvd, discussion will return to issues covered in this section: a) the point of view, b) the imaginary projection plane, and c) parallax. As rough placement, I am very satisfied. I can see all of the necessary elements in place. The script is almost completely tweaked, with just a few foreseeable changes to come.
I'm thinking it's time to try out final [quality] voice over recording. I will likely redo final voice over more than once, but now is a good time to bring out the expensive mic and recorder and run some tests. I want to decide what voice over style/standard I want to employ. Should it be casual, official, gentle, perky, argumentative? A blend? It'll be good to record samplers and get feedback from friends. I'll post here when I have something.
So, to sum it up, things are feeling optimistic today. I should celebrate!
