This week we were working with our composer to refine the music in the final version and record announcer voice over. We had two versions of the announcers recorded, but after listening to the animation together with the audio, we felt the audio might be a little overpowering and detract from the film. Before we made our decision, we decided to gather feedback. We showed our film at the BVW Festival (without voice over)and asked guests after if they were confused or didn’t understand parts of the story. We were happy to see that nearly all guests were able to understand the story clearly without voice over. Before we made our final decision we talked with faculty to see what they thought. Most agreed that the story was clear enough without the speakers. However because the announcers did help to establish character for the creatures, we instead decided to record voice/sounds for the creatures to reflect their personalities.
With production wrapping up, the team switched to finish creating several technical tests for the transition, scene and expressions.
