Stay on Target-----

Hey Guys!

After a long couple weeks at the office I kept the seconds rolling in by doing lots of After effects work for the film....I did get in the garage during the weeks too but it wasn't always easy.....here is a recent shot from the last chapter in the film-its got the long pause in the middle because its cut into 2 shots in the story-
and here is an element animation for the fight scene.
I did manage to do most of the computer console work for the film which adds up to alot of footage......
....... progress was made even though it didn't always feel like it.

So..... now that me and shel finished the line layout and Dober choreography

-we have to get in there and carve all the lines in the clay which actually takes some time.......and then set up the camera for our big reveal.

This shot will be a camera move so I will have to crank a little bit on the manfrotto to get it moving.

I am not feeling real confident on the camera move at the moment but I am gona do my best.

I also wanted to post about my excitement about this years lineup of stopmotion films. For the first time EVER- 3 Feature Stopmotion films are coming out all in the same year. WOW!!

{Pirates}-This looks like classic Aardman fun- Lots of silly -clever humor that I'm sure I will enjoy tremendously. I really hope it finds an audience here in the U.S.....WoooHoo!!! I would be very proud to have worked on stop mo film this FUN!!

{Frankenweenie}- Now I thought the trailer hit you right away with a concept most kids with pets can identify with- Losing your pet - I had dogs all growing up -and I am a tim burton fan so I have High hopes for this one. I am a bit afraid the black and white is going to limit the success of the film t.....but ........again Fantastic work by all the folks involved!! and I cant wait to watch it.

and PARANORMAN-
WOO HOO!!!! I am sooooo pumped guys- they released the second Trailer and I have a BUNCH of shots in this one- little pieces from a few of my sequences-sprinkled all throughout.
Its so crazy that I have had so many in the trailers so far.

..........I also still feel very confident that Paranorman is gona be the NEW Standard for stopmotion film making.....and belive it also has a HUGE chance to be the Breakout FINANCIAL HIT of the bunch. I cant wait!!

2012 is gonna be a great year for stop-motion and animation in general! And your short already is looking awesome, and as always, incredibly inspiring! I definitely needed the inspiration today, so thank you.

Freckles said...

So exciting! The string stuff looks so fun and cool. I'm SOO excited to see ParaNorman, and Frankenweenie and Pirates too, yayay stop motion! Keep up the awesome work!

amoebaboy said...

DUDE! lookin good, have you made any progress with the dogfight yet ? cant wait to see what you do with that.
oh and thanks, glad you like the band.
all the best mate.

HwangNguyen said...

Great stuff and I love the trailers. That dog from Frankenweenie reminds me of the dog for Family Dog.

don C said...

Wow Man!

The Trailer for 'Weenie is like Nightmare Before Christmas 2. It sounds like Elfman did the music and the animation is very reminiscent of Nightmare. Amazing to see such a touching-looking film come out these days. You know, you expect directors to stop striving for putting out great movies- but Tim Burton has really stuck to his guns and I've never been disappointed with anything he's done.

This is going to be an amazing year indeed!

Alonso said...

you're going to give too much away ;)
I'm curious if you're in the habit of leaving extra frames at the beginning and end of your shot (handles) for easier editing?

Rich Johnson said...

oh man. the subtle detail in the face is amazing! he looks real! wonderful work.

Don Carlson said...

Awww, whoops, I meant to comment on your awesome animation! Hard to believe how far you've come since the first 'Bumble video. But even then, I could tell you weren't new to animating. And you definitely don't look new to it now. Cheers!

MexVike}thanks man....I get the same buuzz from all of you guys bloggages...

amoebaboy}no dogfight yet but its close than ever!!

Hwang}I thought the same thing....

Don c}I am excited about it too man....and thanks!

Alonso}ha! yep ...I animate the handles...its always better for shel and the editing!

and I think seeing the shots doesnt take away much at all....it feel sooooo different all edited aup and in sequence....plus...it keeps folks interested in the film.

either way....Its fun to show family and stuff.

Rich}Thanks bro!!
