Some Of The Initial Steps Involved In Making An Animated Film In Flash

The production of an animated film happens in 3 main stages which are the pre-production stage, production stage, and post-production. Let us look at the pre-production stage

The pre-production stage is the most essential in the making of an animated film in a flash. The central concepts are formulated and first turned into a complete story and when the story is finalized then the script, sequence of shots, and camera angles are formulated out. The major components in this stage are story-board, layouts, models, and animatics.

Story board

This helps in the finalization of the storyline while it is also essential for the part of the process of animation. Drawings are made in the style of comic strips which helps in visualizing the animation and communicating the ideas. The details about the scene and animation changes are usually clarified with the help of text notes which describe things occurring in the scene, like the movements of the camera. If animation films are made with a combination of traditional and modern methods of animation, then it can take 20-25 drawings to create one second of an animated film.

Animatics

This is done by the pre-visualization department which creates simplified mock-ups after the storyboarding process. This is done to provide the ideas of the timing and motion of complicated VFX heavy scenes and animated sequences. With the help of these, the director can decide how to go about the staging of the sequences and how the visual effects can be included into the final shot.

The next stage is production in which the real work starts. The major parts of this process are layout modeling, texturing, etc. Let us take a quick look at some of these.

Layout

Geometry blocks or lo-res models are used instead of the final characters and set. It is the artist preparing the layout who composes the shots and delivers rough animation as guidance for the animators. What the animators produce is the 3D version of drawings of the storyboarding artists on paper. It is at this stage that the director will approve the moves of the camera, field depth and model composition that make up a set and the dressing of the set. Then comes the modeling department which delivers these sets which are approved, prop character models in the final layout stage.

Modeling

With the close association between visual effects supervisors, art directors and animation supervisors, modelers turn the concept art which in 2D format and sculpted maquettes into highly detailed and topologically good quality 3D models. The modelers are separated into two groups – one is the organic modelers who have a background in sculpture and specialize in the building of characters and the other is the hard surface modelers who have a background in industrial or architectural design. Once the modeling is done comes the texturing stage where different textures are provided to the characters and components of a shot.

Many other steps follow the modeling process during the production and post-production phase before an animation film is finally made. Creating an animated film requires a lot of hard work and creativity on the part of the different artists at work.

MONSTER VAMPIRE FISH – Amazon River Monsters

MONSTER VAMPIRE FISH – Amazon River Monsters

[ne_semantic_video video_id=”rc22MPCNoA8″ title=”MONSTER VAMPIRE FISH – Amazon River Monsters” upload_time=”2014-04-04T15:17:06.000Z” description=”BLOOD DRINKING FISH STORY CLICK HERE Hey Guys Bill here… I don’t know about you, but Vampires always scare the heck out of me. From Dracula to the Twilight” duration=”PT6M43S”]BLOOD DRINKING FISH STORY CLICK HERE

Hey Guys Bill here… I don’t know about you, but Vampires always scare the heck out of me.
From Dracula to the Twilight Saga, these creepy blood suckers just send chills down my spine.

But did you know humans aren’t the only creatures to claim blood sucking vampire status? It’s true. In the animal world we have Vampire bats and even a fish that will give count dracula a run for his money!

It’s called the Vampire Fish in English, but in the Amazon it is known as a Payara. it can grow up to 40 pounds and lives the jungle rivers of south america. It’s most famous for the two giant teeth it has in the front of it’s mouth – perfect tools for comping down on Sookie Stackhouse.

The payara’s most noticeable feature is the two long fangs protruding from its lower jaw. These fangs can be 4 to 6 inches long. Parayas grow to be around 3 feet long with an average length of 1.5 ft. The payara’s diet mainly consist of smaller fish; they impale other fish with their sharp teeth and consume them. Payaras also share the same habitat with butterfly peacock bass (Cichla ocellaris). In the Amazon River basin, payaras are restricted to tributaries above the mouth of the Rio Tapajós.

Today I am with Steve Townsend who sometimes goes by the name of The fish finder.We’re going to see if we can catch a vampire fish for a up close and personal look at one of the most famous Amazon River Monsters around.

Vampire fish can be caught just about anywhere in the Amazon region of South America, but for me, Venezuela offers more beautiful scenery than other areas.

Vampire Fish are known to like rapidly moving water so we head down river looking for some good current…

The fast water makes it difficult to fish from the boat – so Steve perches himself on some rocks.

There turns out to be plenty of Vampire Fish here, but with all the currents running wild, it’s extremely difficult to keep one on the hook…

The next day, we head up river and find an area that has strong current but not strong enough to prevent us from fishing from a boat….

Within a few minutes, Steve knows he’s found the right spot … he is so confident that he says he can predict when a vampire fish would hit his lure!

Steve went on to catch 21 more Vampire Fish during our trip… there we so many, I even caught one myself!

Well it didn’t turn out to be capable of draining me of my own blood, but there is no doubt I want to go swimming with one anytime soon. Nor will I ever fall asleep earlier than my rum drinking fishing buddies – who staged and photographed this on my pants while I slept.

And that brings me to the question of the day. There is another “vampire like underwater creature that sucks the blood from it’s victims? Check out this real vampire of the water at

Also! I am really looking forward to the new season of River Monsters with Jeremy Wade. Just read this in the newspaper.

River Monsters has resonated with viewers, because “people like stuff that looks weird, that looks gnarly, that looks big.” Plus, “everybody is fascinated by predators. It’s in our DNA,” says Wade. The show offers that winning, attention-grabbing combination.

“I mean everybody likes dinosaurs, but we’re actually quite familiar with dinosaurs now,” compared to our limited understanding of creatures that inhabit the river, he says.

The goal of Wade’s show is to inspire people to educate themselves on river-dwellers; not scare people away from the water.

Thew season begins on Sunday April 6th 2014
