Layin Down the LINE-----

Hey Guys!

been getting a bunch done....


3 more weeks of meeting and exceeding my weekly quota..........
I have pulled in close to 25 seconds of footage in the last 3 weeks...woo hoo!!

here is a shot from the Montage sequence....
A big milestone for us is laying down the final lines which will remain for the rest of the film and define the brain shaped puzzlenasium of personal territories that the characters need to respect as they recover their ship parts.......

We have both been waiting for this moment for a LONG time......we started laying it out today.
I drew out a bunch of line for the early story boards
but now was the time to get real and have them make sence and create interesting problems for them as the Traverse the field.

Puzzles are one of shel's many talents....so she lead the way here.....
.....we broke out some yarn and started going to town.........working out everything in non permanent easily adjustable ways.
this is exciting and going to require some set up for the following week......

Filling in clay cracks....

...Preparing the characters and camera choreography...

Laying down the clay lines- actually carving them into the clay....

...I am also going into a super crunch week at work.....which is gona directly kill my output this coming week....sukkks

In preparation for the slow progress I plan on doing some Post production - computer monitor shots which is more easily picked up and put down as I need to catch some zzz's...from the LONG work days.....while still getting some seconds on the boards..
otherwise.....chug chug chug....we keep moving forward.....

cant wait to animate Dobers Ninjafied moves through the crazy field....

Tricks of the week...

uf, you guys are unstoppable. Clever idea to use the yarn to lay it out. Sounds like a fun problem for your characters, expecting to see some twister and limbo type montages :)
Flea's pretty damn strong to be able to lift up his ship and still have a free hand. Robert doing music on this one as well? What kind of music are you guys thinking of? (or is that still underwraps)

jriggity said...

Yep...Fleas got some power in dem Gams...

Well....Robert has a bunch of ideas for the music....some BIG cool star wars kinda stuff for the DEEP SPACE DOG FIGHT- and then some ecletic - orig-planet of the apes stuff for when they are on the planet waking up.

that music plan sounds fantastic! wow flea should probably hold off the roids.

Matt Chappell said...

Wow, I didn't realize how large your sets were. Those are some serious animation tables. The fact that you can crawl on top of them is awesome.

The details on the ship look terrific too.

Can't wait to see more :)
