FX Shot



While my computer gasps and chokes (while waiting for its OS to be replaced) I'm working from the boyfriend's computer, and getting lots done.

Another screencap! Running, with background FX. By the end of the week, I hope to have the whole sequence finished, which will put the animation at about halfway completed!

Continuing Continuation




Screencap! Animation continues to chug along. I'm curious where I'll be by the end of the year, especially since I'll be working full-time (FINALLY!!!)for the first 4 months of 2011. Time to get some scenes out of the way before things get biz-zay.

Politically = I've been largely ignoring the 9/11 related politics as of late. Get caught up in petty rumors and arguments, and you lose sight of the gravity of what actually happened: Three thousand people ceased to be alive within the span of a few hours.

I see it as a day to be quiet a minute for those people, and maybe give my dad a call. Because I can.

One-Third Animated!



To celebrate, here's a rare peek at where the magic happens. Right now it's also full of sewing notions and half-finished projects, but I left those out for effect.

May flowers

Debris continues to move along at a steady - if somewhat slow - pace. Here's some animation I just finished today. The main character is losing his mind! And knocking over chips! Oh em gee!

I actually have a question I'll pose here, if anyone knows the answer - eventually, when I finish "Debris," I'd like to take it around to festivals, contests, etc. I'm concerned about posting more animation online, since a lot of these organizations frown on making stuff public before it's "aired." Then again, I also like sharing my work in progress with everyone...I think it's important, and it helps to motivate me.

Anyone had any experiences with this before? Should I plan on having to take down my blog/trailer in a couple of years when the film is finished and ready to be sent out? Am I already screwed because I have a production blog? If anyone's familiar with this, please enlighten me.

Wow!

Almost five months of silence on the Debris blog? It must be time for an update!

I've been busy working an assortment of freelance gigs, which is great, but I haven't had any time for Debris. Plus I was taking a storyboard class at Concept Design Academy. Plus my computer broke. Twice. EXCUSES.

Anyhow, here's a quick scene I finished this evening in about 2 hours. I feel like my drawings have improved a bit since January, so that's good.

I am Making Plans to spend a lot of time animating in May, so prepare your eyeballs for more updates! Endless updates! Yes!

Debris trailer is finished!



Woohoo! Here it is!
Next big step in the promo train is a website...then back to gettin' it done, one scene at a time.

The trailer helped me jump around a little, though, which was nice. That scene with the skunk in the grass took friggin forever. Skunks. Always takin' forever.
