Week 7

Okay, it's hella scary that it's week 7 already, but let's not dwell on that...!

Okay chaps, this week looks a bit like this.

  • I'll be working on the animatic for most of the week.
  • I'm also in the process of getting in touch with some schools to try and get some monster drawings.
  • Other things to be working on include- the Mum design, props for the kids' room, ideas for the battle arena, designs for the monsters, (2d folks) practising drawing the kids.

Cheers chaps!

Week 6

This week is going to be a week of very little progress, seeing as peer reviews have been pushed back to next week, and I have to give a presentation on Friday for my other module. 

  • Character Designs have been finalised- model sheets/turn arounds are in progress.
  • Thumbnails are DONE.
  • Animatic is a work in progress, should be done for the peer review.
  • Model of bedroom has been started.

Next week will be spent on the animatic, the week after on finalising the Mum and the monsters' designs. Not sure if that counts as "on schedule", but it could be worse!

Mock-up scene for Animatic

Wee five minute job with a shot from the Animatic Room and a drawing from Sami, basically  just stuck together. Not remotely impressive, but it's nice to see the kids in their wee room haha

Mock-Up Room

So this morning was spent fashioning this little bedroom for use in the animatic.

Currently sticking cameras about it to get an idea of the shots I want. (Using the default camera, just for a rough idea)

Progress- Week 5

Hey guys.

As week 5 begins, just a few things to note- 

  • Finalising characters is taking longer than expected (my fault for still not being entirely sure what I'm after), but they're getting there.
  • The decision has been made to do the background for the kids' bedroom in 3D. This will hopefully tie the 2D and the 3D scenes together better, and make the 2D workload a bit more manageable. 
  • The script is final, as is the dialogue. Meeting with my child actors next week or the week after to capture the magic.
  • Storyboard thumbnails have been started.
Full speed ahead.
