Sorry for my prolonged absence, but now I’m back. With exciting developments to add. All animation was finished 6 weeks ago.
I have been coloring for the past 4 weeks, and now a total of 18 shots are colored. With 24 remaining and six weeks to tackle the project, everything’s shaping up nicely.
This progress check features some color shots, but those are not the final comps (missing digital VFX and backgrounds). So trust me, the final look’s going to blow you away.
As I approach the homestretch of the final semester. I enter into coloring and editing. I’ll have a rough cut and colored animation prepared soon.
Rough cut – end of the week
Colored Progress – February 25
When I look at my production, I think this video may end up having two releases. The first will be for school completion, but I’ll want to redo the background art and add a second layer of color animation. This debut music video must rock all of the socks.
The final stages of the the animation process are drawing near. Here are a few pencil tests taken from my most recent work. At the start of February, all rough animation will be complete. My final semester at KCAI will be dedicated to coloring, compositing, and editing. I’m in good shape to meet my deadline in May.
My homemade multi-plane camera system is reaching completion as well. I’ll be able to produce clean and consistent tests with this little marvel. Just cut a hole in an old coffee table and I’ll be attaching a camera mount for my DSLR.
I’ve been chipping away at the colossal block of animation which is my senior film (music video). You can see the old pencil tests in the animatic, but here’s what I’ve produced in addition to those. So, I have about the first minute done. YAY!
I have the animatic finalized as far as shots, compositions, and timing. Little tweeks will be made as needed, but for the most part it’s done. I have a shot list put together, and I’ll have my rough animation completed in an update later today.
