There were a few iconic ones I found such as Tomand Jerry, Regular Show etc. I also researched the environments from the 50’s and in the future.I also had to research Cell Animations to see what it is and how it works, since I am doing a Cell Animation for my FMP.Finally, from my research I collected earlier in that week, I started thinking of story ideas that could blend both classic and modern cartoon show elements together.Wednesday06.03.13This week, I continued story planning and developed a Story Board, coming up with a Sci-Fi Sitcom that involves Time-Travel; I also researched shows which were popular fromsurveys that I made last week like Tom and Jerry, Ed Edd n Eddy, Adventure Time etc.I did my pitch this week as well, explaining what I plan to do with my FMP, what I have been researching, what I have found etc. I talked about the environment of both the pastand the future, even technology from the past and future and the cartoons made past and present.Wednesday13.03.13I began researching my findings to get an idea of what sort of humour was in those cartoons and take ideas from those. I also finished it within the same week and began to getmore ideas for my story, I also got the risk assessment done this week, making myself aware of possible hazards and how they can happen.Wednesday20.03.13This week I did the pre-production of my FMP, I had to figure out how much everything I would need to do my FMP would cost, getting all of the stuff I needed etc.Wednesday27.03.13I didn’t produce anything this week.Wednesday03.04.13This week, I made a start at producing the backgrounds that I plan to use based on the storyboards I did, I decided to design them in black and white because most cartoons inthe past were in a Black and White Style. The backgrounds I did this week were both outside buildings next to roads.Wednesday10.04.13I had finished all my black and white backgrounds this week and moved on to start designing different backgrounds for Flash, most of which were based in a single room fromdifferent perspectives, from the back, the front, etc.
Wednesday17.04.13I updated my schedule this week as I knew that I wasn’t going to have enough time to finish the project off, so I extended it by taking 2 weeks off my spare time. I started doingthe Animations of my Characters. I started with the Futuristic Scenes since I had already done those on Flash.I did the Scene of when the Main Character “Tinuem”, goes to the future. I got half way through doing this since this was a really long Scene.Wednesday24.04.13I finished 2 scenes this week; including the one I got half way though. The second Scene that I finished was of hover cars flying outside as my main character was looking at them.I started work on the scene where Tinuem’s Future self finds his past self in his home, mistaking him for an intruder.Wednesday01.05.13I finished the Scene mentioned last week while moving onto the scene where the 2 Tinuems are talking to one another. However, during the week, the file got corrupt so I had tostart again from the previous file, I did manage to catch up with my work by the end of the week though by getting half way through the second scene again. I then began thescene where Future Tinuem explains about the robot power core and what dangerous effects it could cause if not properly used.
Wednesday08.05.13I finished the explanation scene midway through the week. I then did the final scene where Past Tinuem returns to his own time. I also did a Title scene and a To be continuedscene. I also had to edit my schedule since I didn’t feel that I would have enough time to finish.Wednesday15.05.13This week, I had to tweak any minor problems with my animation and delete the scenes that I wasn’t going to need or use.Wednesday22.05.13I finished my Animation, I then had to screen capture it, then load it onto Adobe Premier, then I saved it as MPEG2 to upload to YouTube and upload that onto Blogger. I also didmy Evaluation this week.
