Creation Sneak Preview Scene

A sneak preview 'scene' of my upcoming movie Creation. This was one of the hardest things to animate, ever. The color correction is still a WIP, however thoughts and opinions are appreciated.

Sneak Preview

2 frames of my upcoming movie. The movie's goal is to improve my skills with a camera whilst still giving quality content. Enjoy!

The Cancellation of Rift

Today I must bring some sad news. Rift, a project that I have been working on (although only have animated about 10 seconds of) has been canceled. The reason being is that almost all the shots require things that I don't have, or something that is just plainly impossible with LEGO. Do not fret though! I'm currently thinking about some new ideas and I should hopefully have something pretty soon.
Hope you guys have a good day,
Kees

Updates & DeviantArt

Hello one and all!
I'd like to start of this post with some good news. The final scenes of TOoP have been shot and now editing remains. Sadly this may take a few weeks for school has provided me with much work (thankyouverymuch14pagehistoryassignment). Some other news though, a while back I made a Deviant Art page! For those who don't know what Deviant Art is, it's basically an art sharing website. I've done this because I've taken the liking of making some digital art. Some feedback would be appreciated. My account is called IntrepidDrawer (http://intrepiddrawer.deviantart.com/)

My entry. This might not make any sense if you don't watch his videos.
The second topic of this post regards a contest of a user called Zisteau of whom you may or may not know. Zisteau is a LPer (someone who does game commentaries) and he recently hosted a contest for his T-Shirt designs. I decided to give it a shot, and here is my result:









And that's about it. Have a good day, and see ya in the next post

Updates

Hi everyone,
You might be wondering, why I haven't uploaded anything in a while. Well, I'm working on something huge and it will probably come out in August. It's a pirate themed brickfilm, starring Loic, Pritchard, Jargon and Shutterbroke. More I won't tell :P. I will however show you some raw pictures:














As an extra; my updated BiM signature

Making Animations in Windows Live Movie Maker

Please note that the following tutorial is a Windows 7 exclusive and covers only the animation, and not sound design. 

So you just started brickfilming, but you're broke. You don't have any money to buy the software, like Sony Vegas or Dragonframe. You wonder to yourself, how do I do it then? Well fear not, that's why you're reading this! I'll show you step by step how to make top-notch animations with just the standard software that comes with Windows. 


Step 1.


Open Windows Live Movie Maker. It should come with every windows 7 PC.

Step 2.



Open up your images.

Step 3.


Make sure that everything is selected (you can see if that is the case if every image has a blue box around it) and then set the time to 0,07 for 15 fps and 0,04 for 24/25 fps.

Step 4.

Click save as and then High-Definition. Choose your file name and location and you're done!

Tips & Troubleshooting

  • If the image quality is seems low and blurry in the display box but not on the actual file worry not. WLMM is just rendering the images. The same applies for a black screen. It should be over in a few minutes.
  • If you have a bad case of light flicker but don't feel like re-shooting you can click the visual effects tab and click on the brightness slider.
  • If you're images are coming out in a 4:3 ratio (black bars on the side) but your images aren't then click the project tab and hit the 16:9 button.
  • If you have any more questions be sure to send me a PM on Youtube or comment below!
