Line -Here is a Shot from the montage
I just had an Incredible week at work guys....In fact the most FUN I have EVER had doing animation in my whole Career!!
Its such a funny thing.....It was nothing but a BLOCK- Just the KEY frames and some breakdowns timed out in preparation for the real shot....But jeeez loooouise...was it FUN.
It was a Fairly complicated shot - 3 NEW Characters -2 NEW vehicles - Nice Acting - serious Comedy and ACTION.....Yeeeeeee Haaawwww!!!!
All wrapped up in a 6 second shot.
I have been doing animation for a good while now ...and I have always loved it....but man.....this latest shot is just PURE MAGIC and FUN.
I was literally smiling all alone in the stage for hours and hours as I did the block. It was sooo freakin fun.....and completely confirms my being in the right place in life.
I am now tomorrow going into the new week....where the shot difficulties will start to come in...I will be rehearsing for 2 days and will be shooting for 4...so I am hoping to maintain the magic through the hard stuff.
otherwise- at the apartment..... I have been doing some cg animation on the weekends to get some pieces for my reel as I return in January to the cg world. I might Post some of them here as well.
Wish me luck guys!
