Here's me working with the Milo camera at Birmingham City University for the Focus project. I learnt a lot about how to light a set and back drop working with the Milo camera from Matt Cusworth. You can read all the books you like but seeing it done first hand helped a lot. Always remember the better the green/ blue screen is lit the easier it is to key out in after effect. In the future I would keep the table, stage or set closer to the wall with some light on the wall using light reflecting back onto the set. But be careful not to forget to light the puppet or you may have green/ blue reflecting on the puppet. So when you come to to key out the back ground it may also remove parts of the puppet.
This is my final animation for my end of year show at Birmingham City University. I've been teaching myself how to make armatures and how to use silicone for the body and resin for the replacement facial parts. Learnt a lot from this project and looking forward to the next project.
