last week I was off of work with a BIG focus on kicking off the Fight scene sequences. This was a major undertaking for us because its going to put us off schedule a bit in order to create the footage.
We are feeling that the ammount of animation needed to get across the story needed will require quite a bit of footage- over a minute at least I am thinking....OUCH!!
Thats quite a bone to swallow.....but I am really excited aboout the entertainment value that could be gained in the telling- watching .
me and shel went down in the gym and choreographed the action and then I spent alot of time thinking about the scene and drawing tons of thumbnails -I basically let my brain soak up the movement and poses before I began the animation.
Well here is the Kick off footage from the NEW first meeting out of the crashed ships -
this will have LOTS of cuts to close ups and detailed-clarifying moments.....I did the whole sequence from this one perspective-staging - so shel would have lots of cutting options in the edit.
and here is the no wire removal version.
I have started now the second fighting pass....and should finish in the next couple of days. We are planning on 6 fight passes for them to fully exhaust themselves......in which will motivate the New line drawing- You stay on your side- Ill stay on mine.
wish me luck guys....Ill keep ya posted.
