Back to the FMP....


End of Dissertation celebrated in the true geeky animation way of fancy dress! woo!

Extremely glad to have the diss out the way but now I am extremely scared about the next couple of months. >.< eek! We only have until May to get these films made.

Assessment results came through. I got a 2.1 which I'm pretty pleased with. But it is still only half the mark! I have to work extra hard to keep it there for my final grade! Suzie made me panic slightly when she told a story of a past student who did really well at this assessment stage and then went on to mess it all up in the 2nd half. I pray to god this is not me!

So to set me off on my mad working spree I spent this morning constructing a HUGE list to cover my wall. It outlines all the scenes in my film and all the elements they need. I am about to enter some strange animating trance... o_O who knows what the result will be... lets just hope for the best!

REPOST: Working Animatic

I added some ending scenes onto my animatic for assessment.
They are not perfect... but it gets across the idea. I really need to work on this over the next couple of weeks. >.<
Dissertation is taking over now though! >.< eek!

Ending Scenes

Trying really hard to get my ending scenes storyboarded >.< Finding it really difficult though :( especially the flying scene... I am still unsure what the backgrounds are going to look like. I am not too good at background design... I might do some experiments today. Wanted to get my whole film storyboarded and a whole animatic on time for assessment but I don't know if I'm gonna manage it... I don't want to force the ideas out and rush them cause that always creates rubbish.
I've been thinking about the final scene as well. Here are some sketches I did last night...

I finally watched Grave of the Fireflies last night. It was such a sad film :( although I did see many similarities between it and my story. It was a good reference for my film though and I'm glad a watched it, after keeping it locked in my cupboard for all these years. o_O
Everything seems to be going a bit slow this end of the week. Which is extremely annoying considering assessment is on Monday >.< I want to do more work! I'm just struggling to get any ideas out! >.< ah!!!
