Effects; Week 3 (Raging Fire).


It didn’t turn out as nicely as I had hoped, but it was a ton of work to try and get done in a single week (week translates into about 12 -16 hours tops, considering my other classes, tasks, Hipposterous, and teaching). I had a good plan, but I struggled with being more free form, with relying on the keys a bit too much. A couple of the pieces of fire that break off don’t dissipate fast enough, lingering in the air unrealistically, and the wind that cuts across to change the flame direction should roll across the body of the fire, rather than just suddenly effect it like that. These are all notes that I had a feeling about, but that Kathleen confirmed. She was still rather pleased with it, and recognized that it was a challenging undertaking in comparison to a much simpler, contemporary, and flat raging fire I could have attempted, so I was rewarded in that regard.
