NEWS FLASH: Answer Leaves' Opening Title Sequence
This clip from the incredible animation resource BBC Motion Gallery, will give me an informative guide for how I may want to create a "Growing Leaf" sequence of answers emerging on the tree's leaves for Halfland's opening titles.
Now that the green leaves are placed, I'm thinking ahead to how to make the paper answer leaves appear on the tree. This aspect of the tree won't be mentioned until the second Halfland movie that will feature the writing Mouse living among the tree's roots. However, there have been some questions asked of the Answer Tree already and these leaves will be growing the answers out soon.
For the opening titles to Halfland, I'm thinking of making the finished paper leaves and animating the sequence above in reverse by crumpling up the paper into small balls. The color could be painted from green to white as they mature and the writing can be read.
