Production Updates - November 28

So even though we had thesis this Monday, I didn't bring in a thing to show. Doesn't mean I didn't have new stuff though. I was just really tired and got two hours of sleep and felt a little rebellious. Ha.

Backgrounds for The Packrat have been coming along now, and I've slowly accepted that they will all be hand-painted instead of digital. Also been tweaking out some of the story kinks I kept getting stopped for and re-laid out scenes.

Lookit all the storyboard craziness!


Good thing about all this tweaking is I believe it's making the film a tad bit shorter. Which means more room for padding and any extra animation that sneaks it.

I'm using so much paper. Thank God it's free. I grab printer paper from one of the offices on campus that gives it out since it's apparently "unusable" because of four butt-end text characters left at the top of the page when they're done printing out audits or some such nonsense. They don't get in the way at all though and I'll take a huge chunk of the freebies and get them acme punched in our equiptment office. At least it's sort of like my school is funding my film in a roundabout way!

Mmmmm dead trees.


Here's a little background I'm working on:

I agree, great value study for the layout. Can we see character designs too?

How much time do you have to work on your film? I worked on a 2-D short in college and it took me 9 months from pre-production to finished product, all for 2.5 minutes! It's really cool seeing the progress of the film, keep it up!

thanks for the comments guys...and yeah, i'll be posting more on characters soon.

anonymous...we get the whole year to work on our thesis...which is roughly 8-ish months. I know a lot of us started early in the summer with planning and pre-production, so that gave us an extra 2 months or so. I was a little down when I spent most of last semester though tweaking more of the story than actually working on my film, but it's coming along very well now. I want to have as much done as I can before April. My film is approximately under 6 min.
