The arms of the model were bent to show the strength of the pulling, this was an easier method than fixing the hands onto the window bars and pulling and pushing the model itself. The hands were already starting to melt under the lamp as they were facing it through the window. The only problem was the walls again, moving when the model's weight was countering.
Part 9- Chalking Wall Again
It really does look like the chalking scenes are the most effective. I like the irritated look on the model's face. It's a similar effect on the opening scenes, the fact he doesn't look when he chalks up.
Part 10- Going Insane
The uneven speed of the rolling eyeballs and swaying head makes the insanity seem even more convincing. This scene goes on for a bit longer so it gave us a bit more to play with when we edit the whole film.
Part 11- Rocking Back and Forth
This was to check the speed of the rocking, the timing and spacing. However, the lighting was flashing so we had to start again. Also, the speed we tested made him look like he was hopping more than rocking.
The reason for the very attractive jump he has is meant to be because he hears a banging which makes him twitch :) when he stands up, this is when the switch-over is made into the kid's room.
Part 12- Kid's Room
The idea is that the previous scene is lead into this one. They're in exactly the same position so when the sound of a light switch is made, the room's change.
This is our first run cycle- and a very make-shift one but luckily, i think it still gets the idea across. Funny how the most difficult action we did was at the end. The kid brings his fist in like he's really happy he's not grounded and runs off. His room does look a bit empty though- poor deprived child.
The only scene we had to get rid of was one where we were going to have him sleeping in the corner, but the movement you make when you're asleep is so small that it was difficult to do without making him look like he was shifting around, especially in the small time he was given just to do this, not even 3 seconds. Tests from this are shown below.
