Emily’s shot looks great with the background and colors. Having two figures walk towards the camera with no tracking for the feet can be a bit intimidating, but she handled it really well. Emily really matched the style of my keys and breakdowns, this is one of my favorite short acting sequences. Thanks Emily Brown!
Opal helped with ink and paint on shot 12, and took a pretty challenging task of animating three characters in a slightly complicated perspective for Shot 3. Here you see the rough, with the charts and my keys / breakdowns and her first round of inbetweens, and then one of her cleaner passes (not the final one). I prefer looking at the roughs myself, but I’m a luddite like that. With only a little bit of notes she was able to control all of these elements. She later did the ink and paint on this shot as well. Check out Opal’s site here! Thanks Ms. Baines!
This summer break / accelerated semester is being spent churning out all the remaining layouts so I can focus on animation and audio in hopes of hitting my primary deadline. The layouts cover a lot of the beginning, third, and final quarters of the film. There will be a number more color cards and simple two color backgrounds, but these are the complicated layouts. ONLY FOUR LEFT! But some of them are going to be quite a bit more difficult.
