Moving onto the content of the book.
This year I have created a lot of props and used photography so the challenge now is to make sure the way I present my work isn’t messy and my type and layout doesn’t distract from it.
I have decided to use two images of the process and then one big one of the outcome. I have added text explaining the idea as I think it’s important to understand my concept and the title for it. I am still experimenting with layouts as I am not the greatest at it. I need to remember that this is a book but a presentation so need to follow certain rules.
At the beginning the struggle was how to I put all my images together and how to present it as I have a lot of colourful images and stills from the animation. I decided to present it as strips of images not just to include more but also create a sequence. I may need to make a gap in-between?
As I have created few animations I want to make sure that the best stills are included. I may look greedy trying to squeeze in so much but I want the story of the animation to be shown. I have explained the story while describing prop making process so here are only images no text. I decided to put it all on one page as there is quite a lot of it.
The most I have struggles with a content for chapters like talks and visits etc. It was a challenge to make it go with everything else I have in my book. If it was up to me I would definitely leave it out.
Fist stage looked well messy
In the end I kept it simple as the images are very colourful on its own. Once again I have only included quotes no description.
