Description: I proudly present you my first ever animation music video called Ulek Mayang: Spirits of The Sea. My intention with this project is to create a beautiful animation that can be enjoyed by other people besides Malaysians even though they may not understand the language. I would like to portray the unique element of design in traditional Malay visual art and craft. This song has been presented in a form of dance before and what I am going to do here is an extension of this song and dance in another medium. I love the sound of traditional music instruments and I enjoyed watching Wayang Kulit (a shadow puppet play). This animation is the combination of both of my interest. I purposely made the background color for my project looks like that to represent the screen color in Wayang Kulit show. I can say what I am doing right now is more attuned to digitalizing the Wayang Kulit show. The patterns that you can see throughout my animation are basically the patterns that have been developed from the traditional Malay patterns. Most of these patterns and motifs you can see them all on fabrics called Batik. I grow up surrounded by all these traditional patterns and I found that it is really beautiful thus propelling me to wanting to incorporate them in my project. The process started with designing the entire pattern in Adobe Illustrator. During the designing process, I have a few problems to get the curvy line perfected and it took me a couple of hours to get it done. I did the arrangement for the animation using 'After Effect'. Then I did the editing and placed the sound in Adobe Premiere Pro. The major problem that I had was to get to know all the tools in After Effect and how to use them. Since I am a beginner in After Effect, I needed to look at the online tutorial and asked for help from my classmates on how do to it right. The major problem was on how to show the performance part for each of my puppet character. I have to work hard on this project, as this is the first time I learned about performance in animation. With the help from my supervisor and classmates, I have managed to overcome hurdles, however, this is just a humble beginning for me, as I still have to polish up my skills and widen my knowledge on the aspect of animation. I hope you enjoy it =)
