This is my first short film ever, I made it from start to finish in just two weeks, tell me what you think!
For my first short film I wanted to convey simple tale of freedom. I came up with a story of a girl who literally becomes what she envies and dreams about. In the end, the girl trades up her humanity for a simple life flying infinitely as a crow in a painting. I wanted to convey more art forms in an already great art medium, video. I love animation, drawing, and painting, but don't see them together a lot. I hoped to achieve a good balance and mixture of these mediums in my short film, Crow Unbound.
I started making my film July 14, 2010. I finished the video on July 30, 2010. It was made on my personal iMac. I used Adobe After Effects to help start my rotoscope process. Afterwards, I used Adobe Photoshop CS4 to do all of the main animation with a Wacom pen and tablet. I pulled all of the clips together and did all of the major editing in Final Cut. For the music I turned to the royalty-free Apple Loops provided by Garage Band and did any mixing within Final Cut.
