The driving question that led me to pursue this project was “How can I animate my skating through rotoscope animation and still have it look interesting?” I’ve always had an interest in graphic design and animation, so it was pretty clear to me that I wanted to create a project based around this. Before starting my video, I was (and still am) pretty confident in my photoshop and drawing skills. I’ve had a pretty solid goal the entire time, and I really like how the video came out. These two components really helped me find my way in this project. I was able to learn a professional 2D animation software along the way, called Clip Studio Paint. Learning CSP really helped me make smoother and more detailed animations. I ended up with about a minute and a half of animation, mostly including rotoscope animation of my skateboarding, but also interesting title and ending sequences. The only challenge I faced was focusing on the animation work, because of how tedious the drawings can be and how long it takes to animate a 3-5 second clip. If I could continue my project I would want to get as creative as possible with it. I might even try 3D animation if I had time to learn the software. Overall, I’m really proud of the work I’ve done, and I’m happy I was able to get so creative with it.
