Development and Realisation

The production work for this project is based around a A2 poster. I am looking forward to being introduced to new design software and developing the skills  in these programmes that will help me digitally design my poster. There is a list of potential project titles that we could choose from. This is my chosen project title:


WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN AND WHEN?

VISUALLY MAP THE PLACES YOU HAVE BEEN IN YOUR LIFE AND WHEN.

AFTER EFFECTS

To develop my skills in After Effects I used a 20 second audio of the Sales speech from The Wolf of Wall Street. It was harder than I had anticipated to match the audio words with text. As the task specified only to use pure type I experimented with different fonts before deciding on American Typewriter as I thought it had the most relevance to the subject of the speech. When possible I tried to use effects that demonstrated the function of the word for example ‘Harpoon’ I used a 3D x-axis to tilt and position to have it shooting across the screen like I imagine a harpoon to do. When playing around with different compositions for the words I also took into consideration the emphasis made on the words by Leonardo DiCaprio so the type emphasises the same words such as ‘1%’, I did this by increasing the scale.  

I plan on experimenting further with After Effects so I can improve my knowledge of the programme, this will hopefully help with simple navigation around the site so when creating a new project I will be a lot quicker with basic effects.
