Primary Research- When collecting my research I found that gogglies was a great way to deliver the children’s TV programme. So I went onto which fruit and vegetables I will need and how which one would be better to cut in half and make flat, so when I make my animation it will look realistic. Using stop motion the fruit will need to be flat as the camera is looking straight onto the background so the fruit and vegetables will need to be suitable to cut in half and be suitable to use with stop motion animation. I am hoping by taking on my own research and finding out by my self my animation will look great and be suitable for my chosen audience and they find the animation enjoyable.
Secondary Research- From looking at all my research via the internet I collected a lot of useful professional work to help me with my infomercial and my interactivity, audio and visuals to do with my animation. All the infomercials that I looked at all had some sort of message to tell from telling the story of the infomercial.
Before buying fruit and vegetables I looked at doing cut outs of them but I didn’t like the flatness of them when on the background and the wiggly eyes didn’t look excellent on them. So I decided to get the real fruit and vegetables so that it looked more realistic and so that the eyes fitted perfectly. I needed a message to get across that you need to eat you five a day. So I thought of “Stop, Remember your five a day.” which maybe told the younger children that were my audience that they should remember everyday and also find the infomercial enjoyable and exciting for them to be glued to the animation and to not get board about it.
I also researched into different types of animation such as infomercials, stop motion, and key frame animation which is based around photography which I wanted mine to be based on. I found out a lot of information to be able to pick that the best one to use for what I wanted to do was stop motion and to use dragon frame when putting the animation all together.
