This is what I’ve been working on all day. Well, this and another more complicated and detailed illustration, but this should be all the actual illustrations I need for my Communication & Interaction project, or for the trailer I’m making at the very least.
Basically I’ve decided to do a trailer for my interactive book, based on 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, as it’d be a fair bit easier than making the actual app, and it allows me to concetrate more on things like animation and type and other more designery things. A couple of weeks ago I wrote up a quick script for the trailer itself and the week after I drew up some storyboards, so I at least know where everything in the trailer’s going. What I need to do now is to design interfaces for various practical elements in the book, as well as text cards for in the trailer itself. I was working on text cards on Monday, but they turned out pretty naff, so I’m going to redo them.
We also go a lecture on a marketing competition that’s on now throughout Scotland, asking you to come up with a brief idea for a marketing strategy for Red Stag, some whisky thing from Jim Beam. We only have to describe our idea, within about a thousand words, so I might drum that up tonight, seeing I now have the evening free to do more work. I might also work on animating that little character I showed off the other day, so I have more to show on my showreel at the end of the year.
