I really had fun with this project yet some challenges were thrown at me. Once i finally sat down to begin the project i didnt know where to really start! Though true, once i got the first initial point down it was smooth running. Though i say smooth running, i feel that some of the physics of the body movement was not as smooth as i wanted it to be. One problem i ran into was that my object was moving, but everything else was very static. I found a way to create a camera movement without changing it into a 3d layer and i feel that it helped a lot. I also reduced the size of the head because i found it a little distracting. Overall, I enjoyed this project and for my first animation i feel that it is pretty successful.

Hearing this assignment, I felt that creating photoshop layers to create an articulate object and a layered back ground would be considerably easy. Though in some aspects it was there was still steps I failed to address upon getting the assignment. One, was that I had no clue what i wanted to do. The other was not knowing if I were doing it right. Its like when you have the most freedom to do as you please the more it makes you feel like you can't do anything in a fear that it's still not what is wanted. When i started the project i began with a mistake by erasing the pictures instead of masking them. I soon realized i was doing that i quickly changed that. The basic idea for my piece is taking the concept of the first man on the moon and creating a time where there was the first classical pianist who played on the moon. I used a black and white theme to play on that time period. Overall this project was pretty simple. Though a little discouraging I feel I did an exceptional job.
