Black Hole Studio are starting the new year working on an animated music video. The artist, who will remain nameless for now, has recorded a track with our sister company Nucleus Recordings and we have been asked by them to make a video. The idea of working with animation to create a cartoon character for the video was siezed upon we set about writing the storyboard. With this now complete, actual work on the animation has begun.
The first stage is to design all the characters that will feature throughout the three minute action-packed story. The sets have to be designed and drawn up and the characters put into them to make up each scene. The animation has to work well with the music so the length of each scene is carefully considered before work commences. After all this is done the final stage is to save each as movie clips and transfer them to an editing programme for the final tweaks.
As this is such a long process and we have a small team to work on it with a low budget we are hoping to have it finished by the end of March. We will keep you up-to-date with our progress. Any funding or assistance from anyone who has skills in Flash animation will be welcome. Just contact us for a chat.
