Ok. hello everyone. I'm back. Not that I really went far, I just haven't been blogging much.
Anyway I thought I'd start this post with my ideas so far, regarding my soundscape. Actually I think it would be better to say that I got soundscape 14 before I go any further. And here it is, if you want to listen.
Now I thought long and hard on an idea based on the soundscape. I knew immediately that it was going to be an environment or more specifically a scene, but I couldn't think of what. For a long time I was struggling to get this sci-fi scene out of my head.It was almost as if I was trying to it fit with the music, rather than it coming from the music. It was clouding my mind. But after looking at a box of rechargeable batteries, an idea came to me. (I'll explain that in a second)
Anyway, my Idea is a boat (not sure what kind yet) lost at sea, sailing right into a storm. Waves crashing, lightning, thundering and rain pouring etc, gradually getting worse. Then right near the end the captain sees through the fog, a graveyard of ships and oh dear. It's not looking good for the the captain and his crew now. And that's basically it.
And your probably wondering how I got that from a box of rechargeable batteries… well… there was a picture of some waves crashing against some rocks on the front of the box. Something just clicked together like a lego brick. I found that piece out of a million pieces, and I think it fits together with the music.
So thats my idea. Numerous ideas went through my head to come up with this one. I only hope that everyone else thinks its a good idea, or at least a good starting point. Any suggestions or opinions are welcome.
Just another note. I have't yet decided what the final outcome would be. I could go through the usual things like sketches and digital painting, up to a cg render. But an animation would be more what I would like to do. Just depends whether thats too ambitious for the amount of time I have left.
