Scene 14 - That took how long?

It's amazing, and quite frustrating at the same time, the length of time it can take to produce a few seconds of simple animation. This scene where he falls off of the cliff was a successfully animated clip, though upon finishing it my feeling of pride was somewhat eclipsed by the realization of how little I had actually created. It comes with the territory, however, and animators aren't allowed to complain about this.

  1. You should have heard James Baxter the other night. He was talking about how even if he took every shot he'd ever done, it would still only be about an hour of footage... harrowing.

    Still, this all looks really awesome. I can't wait to see your film.

  2. Fantastic splat! I can't help but think of the sound of lemmings (from the appropriately titled video game "Lemmings") splating. Woorshe. Hahah, i'll try and find the sound bite if you've never played it. Anyway, I'm very excited to see more of your film. Your sense of timing is thrilling.
