Final cut notes

The final animation and the ending music was well liked, and the b-roll was the best parts to watch of the film.

On the interviews, the background was well liked, it was blurred enough to not distract from the foreground but the audience still knew what it was.

The intro (After effects) is a mixed review, it looked good but it was not in the same theme as the film and it need to be placed better to separate it from the film. Fade out on the wolf picture, and change the font on “Team Chloe productions”.

The low resolution clips of the animation films does not match the quality of the rest of the film. Make them smaller to increase the resolution or source better quality footage.

Suggestions was made to show more of the progression of the animation within the body of the film. The intro could also include a explanation of how long an full length can take to produce compared to the one we made.

If possible, include more footage of Thierry and Arne.

Mike:

The intro could have a softer opening for example a short montage and/or dialogue (who doesn’t like animation…) before chloe starts taking about the project.

The end felt to quick after showing the final animation, suggestions could be to show the animation again, loop it, slow motion it or add effects.

Lower thirds need to have more information under the title such as addressing us as students and arne as an instructor.

Could use some extreme close ups of some pencil lead on paper, a line being erased, a pencil being sharpened. The environment of an animator.

Mirror some interviews so some of them are on the other side, they seem too much of the same at the moment.

Cut out some of the black fade outs.

Better explanation of how animation works and what we are doing for people who do not know.

Could probably use a short montage in the body.

Give the audience a anticipation on the reveal of the final animation (build up to it).

At the end interviews talk more about the project, time it took, etc…

Jerry:

B roll was the best footage to watch so more b roll is recommended.

Be more clear on what we are doing.

The music was good at the end, and more of those type of music throughout the film will be good.

There are some variation in color in the film, color correct the film into on similar tone.

Interviews at the end are too long, there was long pauses that need to be cut out, but overall shorten the end interviews.
