PART 4 – NOMENCLATURE
This involved creating a name for our Production House, for this task I created a name generator and lined it up to create numerous combinations, these are seen in the picture below. With previous tasks it has become habit to go with the idea I favored most or the one that I was immediately able to establish an idea for, I wanted to avoid this scenario and so when choosing a name I actually got someone else to chose several for me (these can be seen midway down the right hand side). This ensured that I would have to develop ideas outside my comfort zone or my first idea.
PART 5 – TYPOGRAPHY 2
I began to think of the different styles of font that could be used for the different names, you can see in the picture below some quick notes on what I was looking for.
Next I went onto Photoshop and began looking through the numerous fonts, finding ones that I thought emphasized qualities of the word I was creating. The ones that I thought best met this task are seen below.
Below I have included the reasons as to why I have chosen the different typefaces:
Bad Apple 1 – I think that this font has a very handwritten quality that I think lends itself well to the wording, It also has “attitude”.
Iron Python – I looked for fonts that I thought had a powerful and strong quality, I also chose this font because it has a “blocky” quality that I think would be effective when using a metal texture or embossing to make look like it is made from “Iron”.
Golden Sword – I chose this font because I thought that it would be the type of text that may appear on a gold bar or something similar. I did originally want to find a font that was very old fashioned looking. However I liked this one and thought it looked more modern and would lend itself better to the type of work that would be done at the Production House.
Bad Apple 2 – chosen for the same reason as previous “Bad Apple” font.
Python – I thought that the shape of the letters was representative of a snake.
Blue Zombie 1 – When i saw this font I thought that it looked like the type of text that would be found on a “BIO HAZARD” material or warning sign etc.
Blue Zombie 2 – I chose this font because it reminded me of the type of font used on the titles of an old “B Film” zombie movie.
Blue Zombie 3 – I chose this one for the same reason as previous, this one has a blood/slime dripping from the text which i think communicates the gory nature of zombies. Possibly the text could start off blue and normal and then slowly morph into this font and change to red as if bleeding.
Golden – As previously mentioned i was looking for some really old fashioned text, although i do think this was typical of what i was looking for i didn’t think It was suitable for the style/message that i wanted to create.
Blue Zombie 4 –
Bad Apple 3 – This font reminded me of something that would be used on Halloween merchandise etc.
Iron Python 2 – chosen for the same reasons as previous “iron python” font.
Blue Zombie 5 – chosen for the same reason as “blue zombie 3” but this is a slightly different one.
Purple Fear –
One of my original ideas for “Blue Zombie” was to have a text that decayed, I felt like the text below was exactly what I was looking for, this text would then crumble further with parts falling off. The below text i also applied a stone font to add to the effect that it was an eroding/decaying surface.
The below text is one that was displayed previous, Here i quickly added a metal texture and embossed the letters to create the impression of being a raised metallic surface.
The below text was actually my favorite, I feel that it has an immature handwritten quality, Here i tried white text on a black background, believing that my imagery would work better on a darker background.
PART 6 – STORYBOARD
Next i sketched a quick logo and created a very brief storyboard sequence.
Next I created a very quick animatic to see how the sequence would look.
Next I will further develop some of the other ideas I have and then decide on the most effective before fully creating the final piece.
