Painted up this scene this morning as we had a demo from Darren Fereday. I am really enjoying using Photoshop for painting at the moment. These will hopefully become a more regular thing.

Morning! So it's about time I show my film animatic on here so all the previous bits of work make more sense and overall you know where I am heading. It has been a tricky process putting this story together, and my terrible habit of not being able to leave something alone means that this animatic is forever changing. But with the schedule tightening, it will soon be done and left alone (I think!).
In short, my film is about a young guy who wants to take a different path to the standard one set before him, and the comparison between the path he is currently on and the one where he really wants to be.
I hope you enjoy it, I will be uploading progress through the week of different aspects, and hopefully getting some help with sound-design soon!
Have a good week!

This is a turnaround for my main character, I've been keying out recently and ran into some trouble on different angles so I thought this task would help out. Is it bad if he still doesn't have a name? Naming characters is so difficult!
I'm planning on keeping this blog a bit more up to date regarding my production, just so that I am able to reflect on my work and can step back to see where I am at as the different stages are beginning to blur all into one!

It's hard to keep up with regular blog posting when you're mid animation production because I find that it's hard to show a part of the process that is interesting to everyone, and I also don't want to show you too much before I show the final film!
Luckily when I am finding some time I still need to work out background elements, so I am going to try to do that more so that this place stays more updated. Above are some thumbnails (ment to be kept small! ;) ) for some different shots that I am planning. I am finding greyscale digital thumbnails to be really effective in judging the composition of a shot as it's clear what is stronger within the shot.
Overall, things are going well at the moment, it's all gradually coming together!

This is my character line up for the film. These were enjoyable to design and I am excited to get animating with them and see if they work as well as I hope. But backgrounds? They're a challenge. I can't tell if I am thinking too much into them, or just plain scared to have a go and realise they might not be my strength, but that's where I am at the moment.
