FINAL FILM DRAFT 1 - Caribbean Sugar Trade

Draft Sequences of the final film.
Carnival scenes aren't finished yet and sound effects haven't been added.

The time of the Boat and the Hut scenes will be shortened

Monday, 29 April 2013


My computer has just been off and on rendering since Wednesday. Second last scenes will take about 13-20hrs each. Which means when I re-work the last scene it will take about a day or so to render each camera view. During renders, I have collected sounds and experiences which I will add to the full animatic I hope to finish for Wednesday. I collected some of the sound clips from my re-visit to the Docklands Museum (using my phone to record the equipment used during that time period and some information provided by the museum), On-line Documentaries & Roots (TV series).

Below are images & short clips from the scenes I am rendering

Scene 3 - Slave huts exploding to express the lost of family and community

Scene 4 - Working in the fields producing Sugar

As shown in Wednesday's tutorial, below is the animatic development and different possible camera views of the models I may animate to provide other shots to cut away to as the main camera moves through each space.

AR Overlay Collages below:
First image was a quick overlay test and the second image was a change in the background and some other small changes. I will spend more time over the next few days trying to overlay one of my scenes into real footage to show the Augmented reality experience. I recorded some new footage on site which I will use to show this, the idea is to show it less immersive than the images below and responding to people's movement through the space.

The Century that Wrote Itself (Web Link)

This program highlights the history of my project, even my little boat got into the program haha!! Below is the link which will start 38mins into the program which is the main point of interest.

 Author Adam Nicolson traces the roots of today's globalised Britain to a 17th-century golden age of writing and communication. He reveals a century on the move, a time when London tripled in size and more than 200,000 people emigrated in search of work or God. And it was writing that made this new mobility possible.

Through the very words that kept them afloat in this mobile world, we meet a puritan family split asunder across an ocean, a lowly sailor able to document strange new worlds for those at home and a slave-trader laying the foundations for a new world economy. All these characters remoulded the medieval world into the one we recognise today. Their writings both reveal this turbulent world to us and helped write the change itself.

Need to do some key frame adjustments to improve the movement through the spaces. No sound as yet.
