Montage is DONE....Shel the Puzzle master.

Hey Guys,

We have been hard at work and I am happy to say that Shel conquered the Montage sequence.
Pfffeeew.....what a challenge.

She managed to edit a HUGE bunch of shots into a working Montage that builds in energy till the BIG reveal in the story....

This was a bit of a  intimidating task to her and it took alot of massaging and playing......but she Nailed it!!

Our intent in the chapter shifted a couple of times...which confused us but we got cleared up and made it happen.....

  I am excited to say goodbye to this chapter since I am sooo looking toward the Finish line....I now will be concentrating on the END chapter which will make the first use of our miniature Ships....

Speaking of ships- Ill be sharing a cool Video of shels progress on the Flea Mini ship next post- getting ready for Molding and reproduction.

This means we will now have 3 FULL chapters in EDIT and working ...Way over the HUMP.

here is one of the last shots from the montage.Dober Dealing with LINES retrieving parts....and more lines
being drawn...

and the last line drawn shot -

  so.....Things are starting to FINALLY chill out at Work and our game is in the BUG fixing phase.
I will be Nit picking and just fixing things here and there untill we finally hit GOLD Disc on this project.

The excitement online is very cool.....and I know folks are gona have some FUN with this one.

Paranorman is getting closer every day and I am going crazy inside in is a pic that was on the internet that shows me animating my favorite shot from the film I had the pleasure of creating!! I seriously had a smile on my face nonstop for the  week it took to animate was a beautiful set-awesome scene- 3 great puppets- 2 vehicles and a great little GAG....DREAM stuff.

I am also seeing adds everywhere and I hear people talking about I am really Feeling this film could be exactly in the right place at the right time!!  I am smelling OSCAR Winning Film guys.....

 here are some more Great behind the Scenes videos from Paranorman- I am in a bunch of these especially this honored to be a part of this.

Trick of the week-

I can't wait to see your short finished and see some of your work in Paranorman! May God be with you as you get through it all!

Awesome Awesome! Looking forwards to Line, excited for Paranorman. What's fun about that pic of you on set, it looks like you are just a giant puppet with a rig sticking out of your head (I think it's a light rig behind you)
I think around this time on Gerald you guys mentioned that you had the next film in the works, so ... do you have something bubbling on the back burner for after Line?
Of course you have a pomel horse at your house, how else would you do the loopy things :P
