Hi Robin! What would you recommend to watch to learn a bit on how to make videos like the ones with Anti?
Well, any tutorials on just learning Premiere would probably serve you well, though I can’t really point to anything particular since I pretty much just winged it and made it up as I went along. Sorry!
Watching reference footage of something you wanna learn, and trying to recreate it just for learning purposes is always useful with anything though, not just in editing! As long as you learn the skills from it, and not just copy flat out that is. I remember seeing SO many reel-intros and demos back after my school-days from people who’d just followed Andrew Kramers After Effects tutorials on Video Copilot, and replaced the graphics with their name or whatever. Don’t do that. But learn from it :)
a social media au featuring taehyung as a travel vlogger!
summary: Taehyung’s friends keep committing grave and unforgivable sins against him, and now you’re trying to poison him?
“Y/N, did you pack a spare memory card?” Taehyung asks as you shove another shirt into your suitcase. He’s hovering around seemingly aimlessly, having finished packing his own suitcase. He’s surprisingly quite organised when it comes to travelling (probably from having gone on more trips than you can bother to count), so he tries to finish it at least a day before you’re set to go. And of course, he has convinced you to do the same.
These film stills show actresses
Rhoda Williams providing film reference for
Anastasia and Drizella from Walt Disney’s Cinderella (1950). The animators would then use this footage as reference – NOT for tracing and/or rotoscoping – when animating the characters.
This recap skimps on some details, but it also condenses about 200,000 words into a nice easy-to-swallow format of, uh
… well, arguably a lot shorter than my usual chapters. Hopefully it prompts enough to help folks catch up on the whole ordeal.
This recap’s gonna cover chapters 1 to 25 (or 1 to 28, if it’s AO3). I figure comic-onwards is going to be easier to remember.
Taking place after a Pacifist Run, Spectrum is the story about Sans trying to keep the past in the past, Papyrus trying to help the situation and only really knowing half the context, Frisk trying to provide moral support to skeletons who used to be their moral support, and Undyne carrying the whole goddamn team because the skelebros consistently don’t have their shit sorted.
It’s also meant to be a story about inner conflict, accepting certain things about yourself that you’re not happy with, and the bad things that happen when you repress them. Also there’s the power of friendship, teamwork, and body horror.
DO NOT POST THE VALENTINES DAY VIDEO!!! The agreement is to reference or post tiny footage/audio tracks of the video but IT IS FORBIDDEN to upload the whole damn thing!!!
Uploading tiny bits is permitted due to the ‘fair use’ policy as using tiny bits and changing the purpose from the original is counted as fair use and referencing it is ok as you are not showing the video and you’re just talking about it.
So quick reminder: DO NOT POST THE VDAY VIDEO… EVEN AS A JOKE!!! Phil will hunt you down and immediately give you that copyright strike. Dont you even dare try to upload the entire AUDIO as well! Dont even dare upload the entire visuals only (with or without subtitles or whatevs).
The film begins in the London nursery of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, where the three children are visited by Peter Pan. With the help of his tiny friend, the fairy Tinkerbell, Peter takes the three children on a magical flight to Never Land. This enchanted island is home to Peter, Tink, the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily and her Native American nation, and the scheming Captain Hook who is as intent on defeating Peter Pan as he is from escaping a tick-tocking crocodile.
Peter Pan was originally intended to be Disney’s second film after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. However he could not get the rights until four years later, after he came to an arrangement with Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, to whom Barrie had bequeathed the rights to the play. The studio started the story development and character designs in the late 1930s and early 1940s, and intended it to be his fourth film, after Snow White, Bambi and Pinocchio.
During this time Disney explored many possibilities of how the story could be interpreted. In the earliest version of the story, the film started by telling Peter Pan’s back story. Walt also explored opening the film in Neverland and Peter Pan coming to Wendy’s house to kidnap her as a mother for the Lost Boys. Eventually, Disney decided that the kidnapping was too dark. In another version of the film, Nana went to Neverland with Pan and the Darling children, and the story was told through her eyes. In other interpretations of the story John Darling was left behind for being too serious, practical and boring.
It was not until 1947, as the studio’s financial health started to improve again after WWII, that the actual production of Peter Pan commenced, even though Roy O. Disney did not think that Peter Pan would have much box office appeal.\
Milt Kahl, the supervising animator of Peter Pan and The Darling Children, claimed that the hardest thing to animate was a character floating in mid air.
Rumor has it that Tinker Bell’s design was based on Marilyn Monroe, but in reality her design was based on Tinker Bell’s live-action reference model, Margaret Kerry. Margaret Kerry posed for reference film shots on a sound stage; the footage was later used by supervising Tinker Bell animator Marc Davis and his team when they drew the character. Like Kerry, Bobby Driscoll was both the live-action reference model, mainly used for the close-up scenes, and the voice actor for Peter Pan. Peter’s flying and action reference shots, however, were provided by dancer and choreographer Roland Dupree. Similarly, Hans Conried, the voice of both Captain Hook and Mr. Darling, also performed the live-action reference footage for those characters (it was one of the few elements left over from the play, that Hook and Mr. Darling were played by the same actor).
The film was a commercial success and was also the highest-grossing film of 1953. In 1955, it was reported that the film had earned $7 million against its budget of $4 million. Peter Pan was praised by most critics during its initial release. The New York Times gave the film a mixed review, praising the animation itself, but also declaring that the film was not really true to the spirit of the original Barrie play. Walt Disney himself was dissatisfied with the finished product, feeling that the character of Peter Pan was cold and unlikable. However, experts on J.M. Barrie praise this as a success, as they insist that Pan was originally written to be a heartless sociopath.
Peter Pan has been seen as racist in recent years due to the way Disney portrayed the Native American “Indians” in the film. They are displayed as wild, savage, violent and speak in a stereotypical way. These stereotypes are present in J. M. Barrie’s play. Marc Davis, one of the supervising animators of the film, said in an interview years after the production that ‘I’m not sure we would have done the Indians if we were making this movie now. And if we had we wouldn’t do them the way we did back then.’”
If something in this show doesn’t make sense we question it. Think about the skull picture. The lost plot lines. John’s fucking letter! Arwel’s elephants. TPLoSH references. The lost footage from setlock. The promises of explaining everything, of making history, of the best writing they have done. These haven’t been met and they will be.
On an emotional level I am gutted, like most of you, but logically?
Think of every tjlce video by rebekah @quietlyprim and the metas from everyone but in particular that first ‘operation johnlock is go’ by nattie @loudest-subtext-in-tv and all that evidence we have burned into our minds and the interviews with the cast and writers. Remember Sherlocked when the music producers said they would keep us specifically in mind for writing the score.
All of those references to clue and to the princess bride.
“I’m not actually gay.”
“Well I am… Look at us both.”
“There’s always two of us.”
“The things you wanted to say but never said.”
“It’s always you. John Watson, you keep me right.”
This is not queerbaiting. This is romance AND WE KNOW THIS. We have done all these years.
Yes this is a really terrifying stunt, it’s honestly horrible and I won’t try to justify their actions with how it has affected our community tonight.
I’m begging you all. Please do not forget all that we know. This series and this episode are wrong and ‘off’ for a reason. The writers did NOT suddenly forget their show and how to write. The actors and crew did NOT suddenly forget what good writing is and call this series ‘the best’ against all their tastes of good television. The BBC did NOT commission a series of a show that loses all it’s previous tone and quality for no reason - because TFP was truly terribly written and presented.
But we have been told repeatedly - ESPECIALLY in this series - to not lose hope. We had a character named Faith in and episode where the meaning of a name is absolutely relevant and essential (Eurus, the East Wind). We had nurse Cornish saying that John’s blog has gone down hill a bit - in obvious reference to what the writers KNOW they are making of the show. Sherlock told us people always give up after three, but they really shouldn’t. There are hints at a fourth episode and I really believe we will get this.
It’s scary and horrible and please take time to care for yourself and mourn if you have to, but what we have here is not wrong. We said it’s elaborately planned gay or absolutely defying all laws of reason trash, and it appears we ended up with the second tonight, but it does just as I have said - it defies all reason.
In order to doubt TJLC you have to believe that the writer’s have suddenly forgotten how to write, that the actors suddenly have no taste, that the designers are suddenly so sloppy that they allow for a skull picture to be differently lit multiple times in the same scene (which arwel has explicitly said on twitter that it is completely purposeful). You also have to believe that thousands of people saw something and proved it to be there only to be told it isn’t in a way that not only defied us but defies the show itself and it’s creators.
thisis from the wikipedia page 4 disney’s the fox and the hound n idk if its just the matter-of-fact way its written but its maybe both the funniest n most tragic paragraph i ever read
. Thinking the movie had a weak second act, Reitherman decided to add a musical sequence of two swooping cranes voiced by Phil Harris and Charo who would sing a silly song titled “Scoobie-Doobie Doobie Doo, Let Your Body Turn Goo”. Live-action reference footage was shot of Charo in a sweaty pink leotard, but the scene was strongly disliked by studio personnel who felt the song was a distraction from the main plot with Stevens stating “We can’t let that sequence in the movie! It’s totally out of place!” Stevens notified studio management and after many story conferences, the scene was removed. Reitherman later walked into Stevens’s office, slumped in a chair, and said, “I dunno, Art, maybe this is a young man’s medium.” He later moved onto to undeveloped projects such as Catfish Bend and died in 1985.
The word “speedpaint” (when it’s not referring to footage of painting that’s sped up) really bothers me because it’s either really misleading or straight-up untrue, ESPECIALLY when the image has a noticeable and considerable amount of rendering.
When they say “speedpaint” but don’t give an exact number, assume they mean “I thought this would take me 10 hours to paint but it took me 7 hours instead”. And if they say “oh this took me 1-2 hours” and the painting has very noticeable detail and color variation, there’s an almost 100% chance they are lying.
imagine the artists animating the sausage party orgy scene. imagine them getting feedback from their supervisors. imagine them filming reference footage. imagine them coming home to their families after a long day of animating food frick fracking. imagine them lying awake in bed at night with images of a mushroom sucking off a beet repeating in their head over and over again
Do you use reference footage when animating, and if so, how do you go about making it?
I very rarely use reference footage, but I do study a lot of things so that I understand various movements. For Giselle I looked at the ballerina Gelsey Kirkland in The Nutcracker. She’s a great dancer and the nightdress costume had a good feel to it. I’ve looked at ballet dancers for years, it’s a great place to look for understanding the human body.
We did shoot a handful of reference shots of Amy Adams in the wedding dress for the scene where Giselle arrives at the castle, and I used one of them in particular, when she exits the coach. I’ll post that later. Those were just shot with a cheap video camera, nothing special, no matching camera moves or anything, just something to see what cool things Amy would come up with.
The important thing when using live-action reference is to understand the movement, the weight, the balance, the anatomy, the foot placement etc. Only then can you interpret and use it effectively, and not just copy it.
Went and cleaned up my last animation assignment! You’ll probably recognize the motion.
Also, I added the second part to it. The assignment was to A: rotoscope over a brief segment of footage, then B: use that footage as reference rather than roto material and do a sequence based on that.
I actually emailed Zag a few days ago about the 2 minute guideline (just to clarify if they meant just continuous/uncut footage was disallowed or anything at all) and thought the response would be useful to others. :)
The “clip[s] (longer than 2 minutes)” which AREN’T allowed under the ML fan guidelines apparently refer to “Any footage longer than 2 minutes in length continuous (without cuts/edits)”.
I believe this means that Miraculous fanvideos (of any length!) have the OK, as long as you don’t use more than 2 minutes of uncut footage inside it!!
(I’m just so glad I don’t have to awkwardly cut down the massive video I’m working on right now orz)
