Brief 1 – Character Design (Process & Practise)

I downloaded the clip and then imported it into Premiere Pro so I could slow down the part I wanted.

I print screened the 3 second clip I wanted, frame by frame. So I ended up with about 50 frames. I then uploaded all of them to photoshop and recorded an action ‘add a new layer, turn down the opacity of the original image. This meant that I could draw over the top of the screenshot on a separate layer and also see what I was drawing. I used an A4 Wacomm tablet to speed up the drawing process which I really enjoyed using.

I then made the background layer invisible leaving only the drawing. Then I saved each drawing as a jpeg. Until I had completed the entire sequence frame by frame. Screen Shot 2013-12-12 at 11.22.03

I then imported all the jpeg frames into Premiere and then reduced the duration of each frame till it played like the original clip. I then added the sound of the original video and exported the file.
