Last saturday at dawn (10.30am) completely hangover, I walked more then an hour in the sun to pick up the screen prints.
And man was it worth it! They are brilliant. It’s my first screen print and I love it, I love it so much I might screen print some backgrounds from the film.
I will start sending them on monday to a few lucky backers.
I printed with Atom Printing, I highly recommend them, great work, fast and affordable.
Here’s the print:
If you wanna get one, they’re £20, just chuck me an email.
And here’s how screen prints are made, it’s pretty rad!
And a video that shows the screen printing process, nothing to do whit atom printing or the film, it’s just a youtube video :)
Today I finished shot MO_03_00 witch means that I reached 5 minutes 30 of animation!
That’s half the film animated!
This shot was a bitch, I emptied a whole pen to finish it, here’s a little preview:
I finished animating all the shots I filmed so far, so I’m back on live action.
I have a few “classic” shot to shoot, i.e. me going around in my living room pretending to be in the desert, but after that I’ll start the more complex shots, involving old fashion special effects such as building a fake head in latex. Ho boy that’s gonna be fun!
Here, a mock up layout of one of the shots I film yesterday:
And just a little reminder that the kickstarter is still going! (9 days left!)
I finished shooting 3 sequences last week and I now have 12 new shots that I can animate.
Some of them are quite scary…
This one for instance, each drawing is a proper a4 drawing… shaded and all.
I made it into a kind of zoetrope gif, for fun. So that’s 9 frames out of the 26 the shot needs…
I’ve now finished animating everything I shot a will back, so today and probably tomorrow will be shooting live action again.
It’s quite a pain in the ass, but it has to be done… the bigest trouble is that, since last time, my hair grew quite a lot, and I’m gonna have to shave my beard… What a drag!
Here’s another little GIF, enjoy:
I’m a bit out of Ideas on what I should post, Do you have anything you’d like me to explain about animation, or anything you’d like to see?
Let me know HERE.
I finished the pencil animation for the Bedroom sequence,
Those of you who bought the book had a preview of what the film animation will look like, thanks for your feedbacks!
I switched back to shading for a few days before starting a new sequence witch involves a different drawing technique…
Here is what 3 hours of shading looks like:
I have now drawn 56 Backgrounds.
I have a few left and my goal is to finish most of them this week and start animation next week.
I will need to make a new planning obviously…
There is a few POV in the film and I haven’t decided if they will be fully animated backgrounds and characters or if it will only be a big background with pans.
Anyway, here’s what it looks like when I try to review most of the BGs:
