Final Major Project. Developmental Work, Research and Final Piece. Trimester 2. Third Year. Virtual Experience ‘Finding Equilibrium’.

The blog will be separated into four sections depicting the development process of the ‘Final Major Project’. The four sections will be labelled ‘Defining’ (Creating Proposal), ‘Planning’ (Research and Fleshing out of Final Major Project), ‘Executing’ (Creating Final Major Project) and ‘Closing’ (Finished Final Major Project with Final Thoughts). This idea was conceived after participating in a Teams Meeting on Wednesday 20th January 2021 when Tina (Main Tutor) was discussing the topic of ‘Project Management’.

DEFINING:

The Word Document that can be seen below depicts the comments I made on a few of my peers ‘Final Major Project Proposals’ which are posted with the ‘Slack’ app recommended by Tina (Main Tutor) to encourage group collaboration during this period of producing out individual Final Major Projects:

The Word Document linked below depicts the final edited proposal before the beginning of the Second Trimester:

Screenshots below showcase replies to the comments I made to the said peers proposals on Tuesday 19th January 2021 alongside replies to my own Final Major Project Proposal (Said comments are highlighted):

The PowerPoint Presentation linked below showcases the initial development performed before the final written proposal for the final major project which should be seen linked earlier in this blog:

PLANNING:

The word document that can be seen linked below showcases the initial research performed before making the final decision on what form the final major project will take with added comments from myself discussing the research I performed. Research was performed on Sunday 24th January 2021:

Screenshots below showcase feedback, notes and discussions I had with fellow peer Fabiano Tavares within the Slack App. From now on I’ll document the Slack app discussions in a PowerPoint Presentation which will be placed within this blog to save space and time for main work produced for the Final Major Project:

The link below expands on the PowerPoint Presentation that collects all of the interactions on the ‘Slack App’ that depict both the ‘Planning’, ‘Executing’ and ‘Closing’ sections of blog:

Word Document linked below expands on further Research performed after talking to Emily Godden in relation to further fleshing out ideas which lead to discussions about Spoke (3D Environments) and Hubs (Social VR). Several links were kindly provided by Emily for me to have a look through which lead to me developing the ‘8 Chakra Idea’:

The word document that can be seen below expands on the further research in the seven to eight chakras found within the body alongside sites dedicated to ‘Mozilla Hubs’ provided both by Emily Godden and myself. The ‘Mozilla Hubs’ sites will prove to be useful as development for the Mozilla Hub Custom Exhibit further progresses:

The link below redirects to the ‘Photogrammetry iPhone App’ research I performed after having another conversation with Emily bringing up the possibilities of creating original 3D models for Mozilla Hubs Custom Exhibit depending on how much time there is left to produce the Final Major Project:

Although the Word Document below isn’t directly linked to the Final Major Project, it does depict a Questionnaire that myself and several other peers had to fill out for the Microsoft Teams Meeting with ‘Interior Design’ students within the university. This was set up so both the Digital Media and Interior Design courses can collaborate with one another in producing a potential exhibition piece despite the then current circumstances with the Covid-19 Lockdown at the time this was written:

The PowerPoint Presentation linked below showcase the initial experimentation performed on SculptFab before being transferred to SketchFab. This was done to see if original 3D models can be created and placed on Mozilla Hubs. Despite the experimentation it became clear that it would be expensive to create 3D Models and transfer them to Mozilla with the cost of upgrading the SketchFab being up to 7 euros (6.06 pound sterling) for one month. I might still produce 3D models but its all down to time and whether its important or not as the VR Spheres are the most important at the time this paragraph was written (27/02/21):

The Word Document that can be seen linked below redirects to the research I performed from between Friday 12th February 2021 to Saturday 28th February 2021:

The PowerPoint Presentation that can be seen below expands upon the initial rendered experimentation with the ‘Cinema 4D Lite’ program found within After Effects. The embedded YouTube video linked below the PowerPoint Presentation expands on upon the models animation despite not being rendered due to the export tool being unavailable:

The Unlisted YouTube video linked below depicts the first proper custom room exhibit I produced within Mozilla Hubs/Spoke, depicting how 360 Images and Videos can be incorporated into the digital environment (07/03/21):

The Unlisted YouTube Video linked below redirects to the second custom exhibit I produced within Mozilla Spoke/Hubs. Unlike the first custom exhibit this variation will inspire the final version of the major project when it is further executed during the last few weeks of this trimester. Excuse the background noise present in video as it wasn’t edited on Adobe Premier Pro (12/03/21):

The Unlisted YouTube Video linked below redirects to the third custom exhibit I produced within Mozilla Spoke/Hubs. After publishing the room it became clear that was difficulties uploading certain parts of the exhibit due to the amount of information that fluctuated between yellow and red, as a result I plan to create four separate rooms that have links that redirect to each other after talking talking to Emily during the Teams Meeting on Wednesday 17th March 2021.

At the time of writing this paragraph I plan to further look into producing 3D models which will limit the chances of existing models on Mozilla Hubs being shut down as well as increase the possibility of gaining a higher grade due to creating original 3d Models for this digital exhibition. (19/03/21):

The three unlisted YouTube videos linked below expand upon the original animations produced on After Effects which were transferred to the third custom room as presented in the walkthrough video linked above. Despite how well the initial animations turned out, it became clear that tweaks needed to be made to them so they appear in a better presentation than they did in the walkthrough video for the third room exhibit referred earlier in this blog. (15/03/21)

The three Unlisted YouTube Videos depicted below expand on the three animations tweaked with the ‘VR Converter’ effect. After reapplying this effect to the original animations it has created a better presentation than what seen beforehand. The method of producing VR 360 Animations which is expanded upon in the Sketchbook Pages will be applied for the final custom exhibit on Mozilla Hubs (17/03/21):

The next few Unlisted YouTube Videos linked below expand on the ‘Kaleidoscope Experimental Animations’ I produced within Adobe After Effects which were later incorporated into Mozilla Hubs custom rooms. This style of animation will be further refined for the final exhibit of ‘Finding Equilibrium‘ (08/04/21):

The Word Document linked below further expands on Harvard Referenced Research performed in animations for Adobe After Effects and exploring the medium of 3D photo scanning model development (The chosen program being ‘Agisoft Professional Metashape’). (08/04/21):

Links that lead to free access to the Four Custom Exhibits produced at the time this paragraph was written (as of 08/04/21) can be accessed within the Word Document linked below:

Screens Shots of the three models produced within ‘Agisoft Professional Metashape’ can be seen within the PowerPoint Presentation linked below (08/04/21):

The PowerPoint presentation below expands on the Potential locations for Insta36 Camera footage/photo and photogrammetry/capture: 3d scan everything/sony 3d creator/scann3d/scandy pro. (17/03/21):

The PowerPoint Presentation below expands upon the ‘Meshroom’ experimentation I performed in trying to create and original 3D model from multiple photos of one object. Despite this I don’t plan to further refine this for the Mozilla Hubs Custom Exhibit as explained within the PowerPoint Presentation below:

The Word Document that is linked below further expands upon Harvard Referenced researched performed for this project from Sunday 28th February 2021 to Saturday 27th March 2021:

The Unlisted YouTube video that can be seen below expands on the screen recording of the ‘Second Custom Mozilla Hubs Exhibit’ I produced incorporating the Kaleidoscope Animations seen earlier within this blog post. This method of linking multiple rooms together with links will be present in the final exhibition of ‘Finding Equilibrium’. (08/04/21):

Another Experimental Animation was produced on After Effects including a different method kaleidoscope animation alongside original flower designs produced within Adobe Illustrator (Animated Space background seen earlier in this blog was also incorporated). This has proven to be successful like previous experimentations with animations and 3D modelling present within this blog. (08/04/21):

Expansion on Kaleidoscope animation technique seen in the ‘Experimental Mandala Flower Animation’ video above. This will not be presented as is shown in the videos below but it is considered for further moving flower animations if need be. (08/04/21):

The next four Unlisted YouTube videos expand upon the model experimentation before and after watching tutorials found on LYNDA.com. This process of photo scanning modelling will be utilised for the final exhibition within Mozilla Hubs. The final models will be exported to Mozilla Hubs as a ‘glb.file’ and a ‘JPEG/PNG/TIFF’ file of the texture (compiling detail from the original photos used for the initial scanning) would overlay the basic model frame. (08/04/21):

The various Lotus Flower and Graphic Designs produced within Adobe Illustrator (present in the Fourth Mozilla Hubs Room with 3D Photo scanned Models) can be seen within the PowerPoint Presentation Document linked below with added screenshots of the FX added to the individual designs. (09/04/21):

Another PowerPoint Presentation was produced showing further refined designs which are included in the final virtual experience with the chosen designs seen below the link in a small gallery (14/05/21):

The screen recording depicted below showcases the ‘Fourth Room’ I produced within Mozilla Hubs with the three models produced within the ‘Agisoft Professional Metashape’ program alongside the ‘Experimental Mandala Flower Animation’ seen earlier within this blog post. At the time this paragraph is written I aim to make the rooms and exhibit as a whole less cluttered and simply in design, linking to the old saying ‘Less is More’, which I feel will benefit the final exhibit once the Final Major Project is completed. (09/04/21):

The two Unlisted YouTube Links depict the ‘Fifth Experimental Exhibit’ and three versions of the First Chakra (Earth/Heart) Room created within Mozilla Hubs showcasing the further refinement of the of the rooms presentation alongside the incorporation of the 3D models (29/04/21):

The following four screen recordings that can be seen below depict the final 3D models within the Agisoft Professional Program. The ‘Tree Stump’, ‘Rock’ and ‘360 Landscape 2’ will be considered for the final exhibit within Mozilla Hubs (29/04/21):

After talking Tina via Microsoft Teams she recommended that Animation should be long and slower in presentation, thus the ‘Clouds, ‘Space’ and ‘Kaleidoscope’ animations seen below this paragraph depict these added tweaks while being converted in VR presentation. Extra notes from that conversation can be seen within the Sketchbook PowerPoint Presentation within this blog post (29/04/21):

The extra animation linked below is a combination of both the ‘Space’ and ‘Kaleidoscope’ Animations for the Third Eye (Sixth Chakra) Room. This like the ‘Experimental Mandala Flower Animation’ was produced out of experimentation to see how it could possibly look when its eventually executed within Mozilla Hubs at the time this paragraph was written (29/04/21):

Following three colour pallets influenced the colour scheme of the three chakra rooms. Root (Red), Heart (Green) and the Third Eye (Purple). Harvard Referencing for coloured images linked in one of the word documents within this blog (14/05/21):

The three Unlisted YouTube videos showcase the videos considered for the rooms in relation to displaying the information for the composers music and the chakra the room represents. Despite creating the animations it became apparent that original 75% Transparent PNG Files were better at displaying the information than the videos did.

Four final versions of the PNG Files can be seen below the Unlisted YouTube videos after receiving feedback from both the Slack app and the scheduled Teams Meeting session which are recorded in their respective PowerPoints dedicated to Slack and the Sketchbook Pages. Original designs of PNG Files seen in Slack App PowerPoint Presentation (14/05/21):

The next few Unlisted YouTube videos display the further refined animations produced on Adobe After Effects which will be present in the final Virtual Experience ‘Finding Equilibrium’ after receiving feedback from peers/tutors via the Slack app and scheduled meetings through Microsoft Teams (14/05/21):

Written notes depicting the initial development of the PNG Information files which’ll be placed within their respective chakra rooms. Further research into the three chosen chakras alongside a couple of John Wilsons websites are also Harvard Referenced within the Word Document linked below:

Links to sites listing how to cancel subscriptions both ‘Agisoft Professional Metashape’ and ‘LYNDA Tutorial’ alongside further research in Mozilla Hubs, Royalty Free Music and the New Designers Award Show within the Word Document placed below this paragraph:

After performing a mind map of initial names for the Custom Exhibit in Mozilla Hubs, which can be seen in the Slack App PowerPoint Presentation, the final name which will be applied for the final custom exhibit will be ‘FINDING EQUILIBRIUM‘. The reason for this is it felt more in keeping in what I written in the Final Major Project Proposal alongside nicely fitting with the concept of finding balance between emotions and thoughts opposite the three chosen chakras at the time this paragraph was written. (04/03/21).

In the case of Kaleidoscope VR Animations not being uploaded the ‘Root Chakra’ and ‘The Third Eye Chakra’ respectively, both of the said animations are placed below this paragraph to showcase what they both would’ve looked like if they working and surrounded the environments they’re supposed to encompass (16/05/21):

CLOSING (FINAL WORK/THOUGHTS):

Positives that are prevalent throughout the developmental stages of the Final Major Project and the  Virtual Experience ‘Finding Equilibrium’ itself mainly draws upon the how well the said virtual experience has come together despite being unique in the sense of approaching a medium that is relatively new through the program of Mozilla Hubs.

A lot of the assets that are produced for this Virtual Experience utilise older skills from Adobe Programs to ‘Photogrammetry’ experimentation with a 3D modelling program called ‘Profesional Agisoft Metashape’ really gives the Final Major Project stand out from the other pieces of work I produced during the three years studying the Digital Media Production degree course.

Further networking was also achieved in the interactions with the composer John Wilson who kindly gave his free time in producing three new chakra music suites for my virtual experience, adding to the consistent good interactions I’ve had with creatives in a working environment after finding them on the StarNow website since October 2019.

The negatives that did appear throughout the development of the Virtual Experience came in the form of spending too much time trying to flesh out the experience itself while most of that time should’ve been allocated to the construction of the experience itself via work through the Adobe Programs and the ‘Profesional Agisoft Metashape’ program.

It also became apparent after completing the Virtual Experience that I should’ve used the platform of ‘LinkedIn Learning’ a lot more which would’ve provided all the resources and research needed for the experience and its assets which was wasted in looking at third party sources on the internet which are not nearly as professional or insightful as the tutorials found within ‘LinkedIn Learning’.

Improvements which will be considered if I am tasked with creating another Virtual Experience in the same vein as ‘Finding Equilibrium’ is to spend less time on planning and more time in putting together the experience alongside pushing forward the original aim of interacting with other groups that link to the Virtual Experience’s target audience which wasn’t the case for ‘Finding Equilibrium’  due to placing priority on the work itself as well as there being no need to gain an audience as the work will be displayed within the university website ‘The Present Award Ceremony’ at the time these written closing thoughts were written.

Final Thoughts I have on the Final Major Project as a whole is I felt it went very well considering the slow start due to the initial planning stages and working out how to create an effective virtual experience within the program of Mozilla Hubs.

As was addressed in the improvements paragraph a lot more would’ve been produced if programs like ‘Professional Agisoft Metashape’ and the final creative decisions were made earlier on rather than in the second half of the developmental process.

Despite this it was good further developing my skills within the following Adobe Programs of Illustrator, After Effects and InDesign alongside further knowledge into the practise of Mindfulness and the seven chakras of the body which links directly to the regular mindfulness practice I perform in my own time, thus why it was the main subject present within the Final Major Project.

Each video is differentiated by the three songs Sue liked the most from the Bensounds site. I emailed her the unlisted links to the video although I might send her the original MP4 files if she wants to put one of the videos on the Sookio site or the main YouTube channel. The Final Animations/Visuals were produced on Adobe After Effects and Final Edited Promo was put together on Adobe Premiere Pro:

Final Thoughts/Evaluation on the Professional Practise Brief as a whole:

The positives that I can pick out from the weeks collaborating with Sue Keough is mainly gaining a first-hand experience in how a possible working relationship with a client would be whether it’s communication via email or meeting up face to face within the university campus to capture the necessary recordings for the promo. Considering that up to this point I haven’t worked with many employers or clients that require the skills I have adopted from this course, it proved to be very beneficial working alongside Sue.

The negatives that accompanied the development of the ‘Sookio School Promo’ however is the lack of meeting face to face with Sue due to the situation with the ‘COVID-19 Pandemic’ at the time this was written. Despite this we were able to meet up and produce the necessary assets for the promo. Sometimes the communication through email with Sue can be tricky as a few things during the production process that needed be had face to face were not allowed which as a result created a challenge on my end to make sure that everything that I written down is clear, on point and addresses what needed to be said. There was a few slip ups initially in the email exchange between myself and Sue but this gradually improved as the weeks gone by.

Improvements that I’ll implement in future collaborations will consist of making sure that I have received all the assets and guidelines the client provided before working on the commission they asked me to work on. I bring this up as I accidently only received the other half of the guidelines from Sue during the last couple of weeks before the commissions deadline which luckily didn’t deviate to far from what was addressed in the pitch video I proposed to her a couple of months beforehand. Another point I’ll bear in mind in the future is to make sure I maintain regular contact with the client from the beginning to the end of the commissions development as the first stage of development had little to no communication with Sue to begin with.

Thoughts I have overall after working on the ‘Sookio School Promo’ commission for Sue Keough is very positive with Sue being very hands on in the development of the promo as well as being understanding and courteous when providing feedback on the edits I produced of the developing promo for the ‘TikTok for business’ course. I’m really glad I managed to gain the opportunity of working for a client and managing to produce the final commission that meets up with the standards Sue originally wanted after looking at my initial pitch proposal video for the commission. This has proven to be a very good experience overall which will prove to be useful in future collaborations with clients and companies who need the skills people like myself have.

After receiving feedback from the main tutor (Tina Burton) in relation to the current mark of this module, she recommended that I get in contact with Sue again so she can provide final feedback on the three promo edits I produced for her company. The photos below showcase the final exchange I had with depicting the feedback in question. The feedback Sue provided was mostly positive with critiques made on certain creative choices and minor mistakes I made during the production process:

The Unlisted YouTube video shown below depicts the first recording i made on my own within Microsoft Teams which will be implemented in the recording sessions on Thursday and Friday (although this subject to change depending on how the performers feel on the day or other factors that might prop up);

The next two Unlisted YouTube Videos depict the edited recordings I done with both ‘Anthony Stuart Lloyd’ and ‘Jessica Gittins’. Added Noise Reduction and -24 Loudness was applied to the chosen takes to make it sound more polished and professional:

The YouTube Video embedded below depicts the edited slideshow presentation of the recording session I done with ‘Anthony Stuart Lloyd’. The video was edited to together by Anthony and the video is located on his channel ‘anthonystlloyd’;

The Unlisted YouTube Video that can be seen below depicts the final edited rendition of the audio drama ‘The Magic Wood by Henry Treece’ for Project 3. The Audio Drama was edited on Adobe Audition;

A link to a Word Document containing the Harvard Referenced Research performed for this project can be seen below;

The positives that are present within the final edit of the audio drama ‘The Magic Wood’ is how the individual performances of Jessica and Anthony overlap each other seamlessly despite the fact there were two separate recording sessions with the performers in question relying on my direction alongside describing the basic outline of how the drama will come together. The music and binaural effects are also worth commending as they both enhance some scenes within the production as well as mimic the standard quality that is found within professional Audio Drama Productions.

Negatives prevalent however mostly relate to the production feeling as if it needed more sound assets to flesh out the audible world which I feel is slightly lacking in my production. Some sound edited tracks of the performers appeared unrefined and needed more adjustments so the vocals blend in with the rest of the environment (This can also be said of other sound tracks that had similar issues).

Improvements that I would have considered if I had more time or if I find myself doing a similar project in the future will be focused on discovering methods in creating more seamless transitions and overlays of different sound tracks so the entire production runs in a smooth manner without repetitive ticks that come in the form of sounds not natural to the constructed environment produced for the production.

Thoughts I have overall for this project is mostly positive and relief considering that I managed to produce a full-cast audio production within two weeks under the current circumstances at the time this was written in relation the government lockdown implemented within the United Kingdom. Although I would like to a similar production again in the future the need to have a timeframe of more than two weeks will be refreshing as well as provide the necessary time for me to refine and tweak the production to the highest standard.

Further Sketchbook Pages below showcase two possible narratives that were considered for the animation with the ‘Hyter Sprite Transformation’ idea being the final one chosen. Storyboards were produced to showcase what bot ideas could’ve looked like if further expanded upon;

The sketchbook page that can be seen below further expands on how the Fairy Transformation will look like with added notes dictating which animation techniques will be used on the fairy herself. Facial Expression storyboard depicts the prominent animation which will be prevalent on the fairy when she appears. Apart from her facial expressions that rest of the fairies body won’t move or at least this is what is planned at the moment;

The photo and screenshot that can be seen below showcase the critiques I made to Manon (Fellow Colleague) in relation to her current work development as well as comments from her relating to what I need to consider for the animation I’ll produce;

Microsoft Teams Meeting Screenshot. My Comments to Manon via Chat on right hand side.

As is written in both the sketchbook pages above the animation project changed from the ‘Fairy Transformation’ back to the ‘Fairy Ring’ idea after gaining new enthusiasm for the idea which will incorporate unused VR photos that were taken earlier in the year.

The idea of the short film being the viewer will be in the centre of the ring seeing the fairies appear alongside the mushrooms before the said fairies disappear with only the mushrooms remaining. This came as quite a nice revelation considering I unsure on how the idea could be realised.

VR Footage was considered but i felt it was better using Photos as it’ll save space on the final film itself, focus on the animations of the fairies and the mushrooms themselves. I also at the time i written this down could’nt access the said footage for some unknown reason so the decision was made to use the photos which were accessible rather than spend time trying to recover the footage.

Three of the Insta360 Photos (taken originally for the ‘Graphic Design for the Web’ module) that were considered (one of them being chosen for the final film) can be seen below;

IMG_20200227_171040_00_028.insp (This will used for the final VR film).
IMG_20200227_164732_00_022.insp
IMG_20200227_165857_00_024.insp

The 10 second YouTube clip embedded below showcases my attempt at the ‘Electric Ball VFX’ tutorial on YouTube which was considered for the transition effect for the mushrooms to appear. Despite creating this effect it became clear at the end that there was no way for the background to be transparent thus another tutorial called ‘Glowing Orb’ was used instead. Despite this I felt it was worth linking it to this post to show the experimentation I performed for this project:

Two screenshots below highlight key comments from the ‘Electric Ball VFX’ tutorial that answered questions to issues that I came across while watching the video. The ‘evolution’ issue was sorted but the transparent wasn’t thus why this VFX piece was not considered for the final VR film;

The first experiment I performed with the ‘Lighting Effect’ (Mock Fairy) laid over the Insta360 Photo (IMG_20200227_171040_00_028.insp) can be seen below. I thought it looked really effective the risk of combining elements that could or could not have worked. As can be seen the second video produced on 15/10/20 it was a matter of making the animations small enough so the viewer can see them as well as the animations not disappearing off out of site, creating disorientation to the viewer in question;

First Experimental Video. 15/10/20.
Second Experimental Video. 15/10/20.

The four embedded videos that can be seen below depict the individual animations produced on After Effects using tutorials which are Harvard Referenced in the ‘Research Word Document’ which will be be linked at the end of this blog post. The After Effects Animations are then placed within Premiere Pro as seen in the experimental videos above this paragraph;

‘Light Stroke Effect with built-in Plugins’ (1). Mock Fairy.

‘Glowing add Lights’ (2). Added ‘Stylize-Glow’ + adjusting ‘Mask Feather’.
‘Glowing add Lights’ (3). Added ‘Stylize-Glow’ + adjusting ‘Mask Feather’.

On Friday 16th October 2020, i experimented on After Effects and Illustrator to produce a Mushroom animation which will be needed for the middle and ending parts of the VR film that’ll be produced for Project 2. The two PNG’s below showcase the early experimentation on Illustrator using the the ‘Watercolour brush tool and Wacom pen tool’ opposite the traditional ‘curvature tool’ technique. Research that informed the Illustrator experiments are Harvard Referenced in the Research Word Document which will be linked at the end of the this blog. After experimentation was done it became clear that the ‘Curvature’ Tool’ is not only quicker to produce an effective mushroom illustration but is also appropriate considering the short period that is given for this project:

Two PNG Files that were used for the animation experiment performed on the 16/10/20 can be seen below. The animation technique I applied on the mushrooms as they fade in and out is the same one used for the ‘Great Stukely Logo’ in Project 1 called ‘Text Animation-Writing Text Effects- No Plugins’ which felt looked really affective and will look great in the final VR Film;

The embedded Unlisted YouTube link can be seen below showcasing the finished Mushroom Animation with added distortion effects and a Glowing Orb Transition feature;

The experimental distortion effects i applied to the mushroom that appears in the middle section of the video above comprise of ‘Stroke’, ‘Bulge’, ‘Spherize’ and ‘Ripple’. I might apply these four effects during the transition phase when the mushroom is materialising into existence. Three Mushroom Animations will be produced surrounding the viewer of the VR film (create three different mushrooms?).

After some thought i will start the film with the VR photo being in monochrome initially till it changes to vibrant colours at the end emphasising the magical supernatural occurrence that is happening in the scene. I might include stock sounds of animals in the film if need be. Four to Five Mock Fairies will be created and multiplied within the film itself. Animations will be produced on After Effects first (Mushroom and Fairies) then applied within a Premiere Pro Program where the final VR Film will be rendered.

The seven second Unlisted YouTube link below showcases the 360 photo transition from Monochrome to vibrant colour which I referred to earlier in this blog. The use of tweaking the Opacity feature was used prominently for this sequence;

(17/10/20) The embedded clip below showcases the early development of how the final VR Animation will be structured. The ‘Bensound’ Royalty Free Music ‘Piano Moment’ felt more appropriate and whimsical compared to the other royalty free music I chosen which comprised of ‘November’ and ‘Relaxing’. The VR Transition I’ll use for the final film which can be seen below will be ‘VR Spherical Blur’ rather than ‘VR Chroma Leaks’ presented at the end of the mock film below;

Two JPEG’s that can be seen below depict the two final Mushrooms/Fungi that will appear in the final VR animation for Project 2 with added colour combinations that were used for the individual designs;

The first 18 seconds showcase the Mushroom transformation scene that will appear in the final VR animated film. This is the second mushroom animation that I produced for the animated VR film ‘The Fairy Ring’. I felt it was appropriate to call the film @The Fairy Ring’ as links to the original English/Cornish Folklore that researched during Week 3;

The embedded Unlisted YouTube video below showcases the final opening title sequence to the VR Film which incorporates the techniques used for the mushroom animations. I thought it looked very nice after the brief period of experimentation thus why the clip below will be present in the final film. The font used for the opening title is ‘Viner Hand ITC’;

Final Opening Title Intro.

The embedded Unlisted YouTube Videos that can be seen below showcase the various final ‘Fairy Animations’ which will be incorporated into the final VR animated film. These animations were produced on Sunday 18th October 2020 using the YouTube link Harvard Refenced below this sentence. Experimentation performed using ‘Turbulent Disturbance’, ‘Wave Warp’, ‘Ripple’ and tweaks to the ‘Glow’ ratios achieve the final results present in this blog;

(19/10/20) The two embedded Unlisted YouTube clips seen below showcase the updated ‘The Fairy Ring’ title sequence and ‘A CALLUM FORSTER FILM’ with the added glow effect to link to them of glowing fairies and magic that is present within the two minute VR Animation. Thought it would be cool to create my own opening title animations which feel turned rather nicely after a bit of experimentation using the ‘Distort’ features on the ‘Effects’ section;

(20/10/20) First Edit of the VR Animation ‘The Fairy Ring’;

The Embedded YouTube link below showcases the final edit of the Short VR Animation ‘The Fairy Ring’ completed before the final session dedicated to group critique on individual Project 2 development so far. The cog symbol on the bottom left of the video has to be selected with the ‘720’ option selected so the quality of the video is lowered to a blur (20/10/20):

(21/10/20) After receiving feedback from Tina during a Microsoft teams Meeting the selected tasks set out for me to complete before the 22/10/20 deadline is as follows;

Incorporate actual photos of mushrooms rather than Illustrator images (looks more effective and magical. Images will be found on the internet and Harvard Referenced in the Research Word Document at the end of this blog.

Make it clearer the fairies are creating the mushrooms. I will tweak the animations so a select few circle around the mushroom transformation until the mushroom is fully formed.

Tweak the opacity of the Fairy animations to make them look more ethereal or increase the colour adjustments of the VR Photo chosen for this project. I will attempt to tweak both these areas.

Four Images that were found on the internet that appear in the VR Animation ‘The Fairy Ring’ can be seen below alongside separate image files that were produced for the four after effects animations for the final animation;

The Unlisted YouTube links seen below showcases the Mushroom animations using photos from the internet;

The final edit of the VR Animation ‘The Fairy Ring’ with added tweaks as suggested by Tina (Main Tutor) can be seen linked below;

The final thoughts that I have as a whole after completing this particular project is mostly positive considering the last minute change of concept from drawing a actual fairy to creating ‘The Fairy Ring’ narrative depicted in the abstract two minute VR Animation that I eventually produced.

The animations of the glowing fairies and the fade in/out transition effects on the mushrooms I thought looked very effective and high quality despite the large amount of time put into experimentation to achieve these particular effects as documented through screenshots and unlisted YouTube Videos throughout this blog.

The only negatives that occurred during the development of this film is how much time was dedicated to some sections of the film more than others (Focused more on Animations rather than standing back and see how the animations compliment the narrative I want to tell in the film) alongside trying to create to many assets within a short period of time which i only just managed to complete a day before the submission of this pilot project.

Improvements and factors that I’ll consider from this project is to be more productive during the first week rather than the second week as I wasn’t very productive in producing work during the first week of this project than I was in the second week. This would allow me to stand back and see how all the components work together and compliment the story as well as spend time on how to create a more polished VR Animation presentation which I felt I didn’t achieve for this particular pilot project.

The sketchbook pages that can be seen below showcase feedback from Tina on the Microsoft meeting held on 30/09/20, early script development for the final dialogue spoken within the advert (Including final track chosen from the Adobe Audition session performed on 03/10/20) to extra notes documenting further research in producing the final logo animation. A page was also dedicated to the development of ‘The Process Book’ as well;

PNG Files linked below showcase the final logo separated in individual files with a transparent background. This was done so separate animations can be done on the letters and paint strokes to make the final animation appear seamless within the final Village Advert. The final logo was animated separately from the advert on After Effects;

The Final PNG File below depicts the final Logo (and extra information for the ‘Stukely Parish’ website) that will be depicted in the final Village Advert:

The First Draft of the ‘Village Advert’ with the ‘Final Logo Animation’ can be seen embedded below with the Royalty Free Music ‘Memories’ from http://www.bensound.com. Video was produced on 04/10/20:

Three photos below depict the equipment I used to record the footage which can be seen in the embedded YouTube link above. The equipment in question consists of a Canon EOS 4000D Camera and a Manfrotto Tripod. The day the footage was shot went very well throughout the afternoon;

Further Development on the Advert can be seen below with an email from Tina (Tutor) providing critiques on how the ad itself can be better presented. The two ‘Lumetri Effects’ used on Premier pro for a select few clips within the ad is also seen below. The effects were added to make the footage more in sync with the family friendly; several of the clips were more brighter and clearer in presentation than others:

The final edit of the film with a slightly tweaked logo animation transition can be seen embedded below;

The embedded Unlisted YouTube link showcases the final version of the advert applying the feedback provided by Carla and Manon (Fellow colleagues in the colleges) earlier in the Microsoft Teams Meeting at 07/10/20. Although the feedback was helpful and did improve the advert there are still a issues with the final presentation with some edited footage being more oversaturated than others. Despite this the first project went well overall;

Final Thoughts/Evaluation of the First Pilot Project:

The positives aspects that can be found within the first pilot project, in the form of the mini-documentary, is how smoothly the developmental process proved to be despite the restrictions imposed during the Covid-19 Pandemic in 2020 at the time this evaluation is written. The written and verbal feedback picked up within the Microsoft Teams Meetings in relation to the mini-documentary proved to be very productive into producing a more structured edited production.

However, the negatives that were prevalent in the project  is once again related to the Covid-19 Pandemic which made it difficult to gain access to the university initially, thus why the footage which was shot appeared lower in quality due to usage of a camera I have at home rather than the higher quality equipment the student services provide within the university.

Improvements which will be implemented in the future if I produce a documentary production is to involve a group of people within and outside the university who work on specific areas of a documentary production which was absent in the original developmental process for this project. As a result of this absence, the mini-documentary was lower in quality  in comparison to similar productions I done for the Digital Media course in past modules over the last few years.

Final thoughts I have overall after completing the work for the first pilot project is although I managed to put together a short and informative mock advert that delivers on what its suppose to be within a short period of time, it has become apparent that I tried to produce a production that needed more time to be the appropriate quality it needed to be as well as the realisation that a group collaboration with other creatives was also needed to improve the quality of the production as was the case in the third pilot project.

Further development and fleshing out of the adverts content can be seen throughout the entirety of this post;

Word Document Link below expands on Logo Experimentation performed on the website CANVA (as reccomended from the ‘Business for the Creative Arts’ module from the second year). Despite the decision to create a new logo from scratch within Photoshop the experimental logos do have an influence on the final logo for the short advert;

Three JPEG’s below showcase the initial experimentation (Fonts, Colours etc.) performed on Photoshop;

Due to technical difficulties with the Adobe Photoshop program which I used for experimentation I had to save the detailed sheets/experimentation of the brushstroke effects found on ‘Brusheezy’ and other details like fonts to PDF documents. The links to the said PDF documents can be seen below. ‘Underline Photoshop Brushes 3’ variants that I chosen are 3 and 8, I mention this here as I haven’t made it clear in the original PDF Document;

Links to sites expanding on Processing and NCH Software. Interactive Environments.

Three videos can be seen below showing the early testing of the software which I felt went very well. This was also applied to the VLC software with little success due to the VLC software not having the capacity to record audio on the computer which is a problem considering I need to talk over the tutorial to specify key information that will be in the final tutorial. Despite the problems encountered in the ‘VLC Software’, the NCH Software’ manages to have the capacity to record audio so its this software that will be used for the final tutorial with Uttara;

The screenshots that can be seen below shows where the recordings are stored on the downloaded NCH software. Once the recording is dragged out of the ‘Find and Play’ box onto the desktop, delete the original recording in the box to loosen up space on the computer;

(10/05/20) The screenshots that can be seen below showcase a further design produced by myself to propose to Uttara and choose between my design and her design.

(03/05/20) The video that can be seen below demonstrates the implementation of the final title of the film and how the opening and closing credits will be presented in the final film. Music by Rory Condor ‘Theme 1 + 2’ is also incorporated into the clip below and will provide the final score for the film although two other composers are still in contact in relation to the film so there might be different versions of the film with its own score. The opening/closing titles will be smaller and more consistent in changing its size and form. Change colour of font from orange (o% opacity) to red (100% opacity) ?;

The word ‘Refuge’ felt suitable to the films narrative as a whole as the character in the film tries to seek refuge and tries to seek peace/natural control over the mental conflicts that briefly arise within the film. The viewer (player of oculus rift headset) will be in the position of the said character throughout my creative visual interpretation of a meditation/mindfulness session. Film might begin and end with a Gong sound (Eastern style music influence) to emphasise that the meditation/mindfulness influence that inspired the film. The other titles in comparison felt to vague or were too sombre for the film which in itself is not a sad film.
