I had an awesome Thanksgiving Holiday and it was a SUPER productive week off .
Our game has officially released and its ready to make lots of kids and there PS3's happy this Christmas.....
I used some of my comp time from our games harsh development to properly enjoy my thanksgiving and make a BIG ole dent in the films progress.
and DENT it we did.....
OVER 1 MIN of finished footage toward the film....woooo hoo!!!! I shot every single night- and some days when shel was working. It was fantastic feeling to drop a shot in the edit almost every day.
Here is a couple of shots-
and flea after crash-
What a POWERFUL week....
and you know what guys.....the film Clicked- It really clicked
It works - the whole film works.....what an amazing feeling!!
and The part of the film that was most important to me.....works incredibly well....
I am High as a kite on the project and cant stop imagining the scoring our latest film and then releasing it to the world....
I felt such euphoria ....and such awe in the amount of work required to get to the point we are at now........we still have lots of work ahead but the real story all takes place on the planet surface...so I feel great relief in the meat of the story being done and working well.
I have 4 FULL finished chapters now...and am working on the epilogue for 4 remaining planet shots.
Then....WE STRIKE the set and launch into space.
Shel has those asteroids looking good.....and is designing cool ways to rig them up for animation. I am going to start previz on the intro camera work for the miniatures.
It looks like we will be able to start shooting space chase in just a short 3 weeks.....just in time for christmas vacation......I will be taking another week off just to concentrate on the film during the holiday.
Keep an eye out....I have some interesting ideas on Puppeteering the mini ships in a couple of shots....and Ill be sharing them here.
wish us luck guys....its a House of MAGIC right now in our place....and we can see the finish line.
In PARANORMAN News- ITS out on DVD- BLU RAY and digital download. I got mine.....and I highly suggest you guys pick up your copy of this OSCAR contender and in my opinion - Best animated film of the year.
