Next up were are a couple of shots I did on a different episode. In the first of these I had a bright light, representing a projector, shining from the background. The idea was to have it shining with a 'starry' effect, and so the positions of the sheep in the foreground were crucial. I spent some time posing them, and once they were I had to animate some object collapsing in the backgorund, thus revealing the light. Then other lights had to come on.
The first few photos show the set up of this shot. Because it was very dark (apart from the bright light when it appeared) I had to have my settings on my monitor adjusted, just so I coud see what I was animating. The trouble with sheep is - they are camouflaged in darkness!
The third photo shows some haystacks that were specially rigged in order to let them tumble over. I won't give anymore of the story away, but Photo 5 shows the set up for a little gag! More shots to discuss tomorrow...
