Citizenfour

Full Disclosure: I'm as green as green gets :)

I chose the oscar winning documentary of the year: citizenfour  I want to play with the idea of transparency and secrecy, maybe by incorporating a refelction on the screen or showing the real world next to the digital world. Im also hoping that the laptop is an easy object to play with using shape layers. 

Keywords:

Storyboard Idea: 

  • X black screen
  • X line to rectangle to laptop(polygon)
  •    open the laptop STUCK HERE!!
  •    zoom to screen with screen frame as the border and reflection of snowden*
  •    hand covers camera with black tape
  •    zoom in to black screen
  •    cursor blinking
  •    type citizenfour (Should take Kenetic Type class first)
  •    highlight it
  •    delete it
  •    cursor blinking
  •    black screen 

Art for reflection of snowden completed :D Pretty happy with it.

Ok... I definitely bit off more than I can chew here. I've only made it 1 second in and I'm totally stumped. As much as I want to push through, I'm going to take some of your beginner classes and come back to this when I have the experience to actually complete it without throwing my computer out the window. 

It should open like the lid of a laptop next, but every time I try to do that, it changes the position of the lid piece throughout the entire video. Clearly, I need to cover some basics, but when I got that tilt to work, I was estatic!
