3D stereoscopic music video: "Everything That Grownups Know"

Postby simplecarn » Tue Feb 14, 2012 4:17 pm

Quick bit of background: I'm a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who has jumped head first into 3D stereoscopic animation. As in, hand-drawn limited 2D animation, but assisted with a computer and rendered in stereoscopic 3D. (Think Yellow Submarine being viewed through a ViewMaster, and you're most of the way there there.)

Instead of releasing my next album as a CD, I decided to take on the challenge of making a stereoscopic animated video for every track on the album. I plan to release a 3D blu-ray instead of a CD when the project is complete.

This is the latest video I finished:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9Vt11n4dtE

You will need red/cyan glasses to properly view the 3D effect, but you can turn it off by clicking on the 3D button on the YouTube player and choosing "Turn off 3D" from the popup menu.

I'd appreciate any comments/critiques you have. Although I probably won't be changing much on this particular video (I spent the last five months on it), your feedback may help with the remaining videos.

Thanks!

Very nice experience watching your video. I especially like the music. The visuals are pretty basic but you did a good job with it. My suggestion for your future attempts would be to find ways to enhance the imagery and animation a notch or two and match it up with the quality of the song.

I appreciate the work you put into the video. It shows and I wish you good luck with your next project. Looking forward to it.

Here's the embedded video...

Thanks for the very kind words, Charles!

Yep, that's indeed the plan. I have nine more videos to make, so I'm hoping to come out of the other end of this project with the equivalent of a self-taught filmmaking/animation degree.

Unfortunately, when you put an embedded 3D video in this forum it doesn't show it in 3D. You need to actually go to YouTube to see it in 3D, or to switch it to full screen 2D. At least it's that way on my browser.
