The storyboard for the animation I finished not that long ago!
A lot more changed than I thought it would, but I'm glad I finished it either way :]
One of the examples that changed as the water frames, in concept his head pops out of the water, but the perspective was really hard to animate. So ultimately, I kept the colors but changed the perspective, it came out a lot smoother too.
You can view the animation in my previous posts, or on youtube, I can't wait to make more stuff like this in the future.
AI and the future of design
Already, artificial intelligence is all around us, from self-driving cars and drones to virtual assistants and software that translate or invest.
The future is going to be awesome, we are only seeing the beginning of the impact of AI on product design and now AI has started to impact our work as designers. Robots are not replacing designers, well, at least not in the near future. You probably remember the announcement of The Grid a few years ago, a website development and design system powered by artificial intelligence — where site modules and other interaction patterns design themselves, without the need of a designer.
Two particularly challenging questions arise :
1. How do we retrain a significant percentage of the workforce to occupations that are more resilient to technological automation and what are the characteristics of these automation-proof occupations?
2. For how long will we be able to stay ahead of the gradually accelerating capabilities of automation systems?
Thinking about the long term outcomes and answering these questions will be vital, even as we get all absorbed into and giddy about designing the next Alexa, the next Siri, the next self-driving car, and the next Grid…
There it is!!! Another exercise to reinforce what I've learned and done so far!! And the results corroborate with the experiments I've been conducting. Now then...on Sunday (since tomorrow's an "exploration day"), let's see what happens when the shadow meets an obstruction! 😈😈 Micah Markray

Storyboarding has never really been apart of my production process. I always thought,"I don't need that. Its all in my head no need to waste everyone's time writing it down." Boy was I naive. I started storyboarding officially for The Vial Part 1 (link in bio) and loved it! It helped to convey the shots I wanted to my actors and kept me on track with the shots I needed to get. So really it saves time not wastes time. I also worked with first time actors so these were almost key in explaining what I needed from them instead of trying to explain it for 10 minutes. These are some story boards against the stills from The Vial Part 1.
Working on a project which I’m pretty excited about. The whole thing needs storyboarding out first so I can work out its structure but I’m looking forward to working this up. #animation#storyboarding#toonboom
