Hey, here's a short animation i did this week using an overhead projector for the main part, and a water tank for the background effects.
I've been using this technique for a while for little test shots, but as a precursor to working on something bigger i thought i'd actually complete something (however short!)
The overhead projector always adds instant "grunge" to proceedings but i'm also very pleased at the atmosphere i can get from the background effects too.
I shot with dragonframe and edited (lots of blending modes) in premiere, btw.
Looks beautiful. Very effective technique.
OH WOW!! very cool! Loved the whole apocalyptic landscape look
The combination of silhouette figures with a rich background works really well!
Did you first shoot the cloud tank effects live, then composite? Looks too smooth to be done frame-by-frame.
I can't quite figure out how you used the overhead projector. I still have one of those, from when I used it to enlarge sketches traced onto clear acetate to 5 metres x 8 metres to make backdrop paintings, but I haven't used it for 15 years. It would be nice to find a new use for it.
Thanks, that all makes sense!
Great atmosphere, I love that style of animation and you got it just right!
