'Roasted Coffee Mornings' 

Animation stills 

This is the first animation I developed. I liked the idea of creating a light-hearted animation using only a simple idea. So as preparation, I had filmed some footage that represents a morning routine. This involved drinking coffee, smoking a cigarette, and reading a book. I had prepared and planned out different angles/shots before going, to make sure I had enough footage to choose from when it came to animating.

 

I decided to use the technique Rotoscoping for my animation. I felt as though this was the perfect opportunity to start drawing digitally. This was my first time creating digital work, so I chose to rotoscope as my preferred technique using it as a form of guidance to help me draw over footage on photoshop. It enabled me to get my proportions right while also creating smooth transitions.
