For the rotoscoping scenes i used a low quality phone video camera to record my flatmate ben doing the pilots actions.
i then converted these clips to .FLV and imported them to the stage in Adobe Flash. i found the parts i liked best becuase they had the best animation, framing and timing. Drawing around several of the images but added the imaginary pilots uniform onto the reference of my actor.
The flash animation had to have windows in so i pretty much drew the window frame and filled them in with a bright green.
Once the animations were complete i exported as a 1280×720 quicktime .mov file and imported into after effects, the plugin keylight was used to key out the green from the window frame allowing me to put the 3D sea and sky behind it.
