For a few weeks, after my first art project at university of cumbria, I've been to multi-media lessons with a tutor named David. He's been teaching me and my classmates on how to create our own video designs. The assessment I was to create is a short video or advert, on a subject, so for a start I was given a kind of title to create the design. It's called “All Aboard!," a meaning of trains and railways. The first thing I did was creating a mood-board of the idea, and then I work on creating a storyboard of how I should make the video.
Talking with David about what I needed to do and how to do it, it's helped me out in this assessment. I start by doing some drawings for the video and scan to the photoshop app, before I could use any them on the video apps. I've also used the images and photos of all kind of trains and railways for the video, whether they're steam trains, diesel trains, coaches, trucks, tracks, speed trains, fast trains, sheds, stations, abandoned, children stories, etc…. Once I got the images in place I get started on after effects, to create the video. In the process of creating I've made some changes in the middle in one of the storyboards. The changes I made were, in the beginning of an on-coming steam train appearing from below the screen pulling a long train whether its coaches or trucks and in each one has an image of a railway. When that train is gone from above the screen, several more trains speed pass from both sides, like at a subway station there'd be one or two images/photos, flashing behind them for just a second and finally the mood-board would then appear last, with the main title "All Aboard!". It's a difficult task to do for getting all the images moving in place and adding some sound effects (both trains and music) to go along through the whole video, but it was worth it at the end. The images of railways I used, were of photos from old to recent, and some of Thomas the Tank engine images, it was real fun looking through these images to go with the video design.
Before going away for the Christmas holidays, I did my best to get everything I've done on the video design bit better, but again it was a very difficult task to do. There're still some gaps in the video that needed work, but in the end I did a very good job in making it.
