A Winter Room of One’s Own
December 17, 2012 § Leave a comment
The days are short and to shoot an animation more often than not you need a dark room to maintain a constant level of brightness. Well, it can feel a little bit like “Groundhog Day” so a beautiful list help feeling a sense of achievement:
So far we did:
- 4000 frames coloured in
- 127 A3 Painted Props
- 66 A3 Painted backgrounds
And now we are about to watercolour and film 5500 frames… But we do still need to colour the last 1000 frames and composite the 66 shots together with the animation It will all takes two more solid wintery months. And after the animation we will do the edit, sound, music, and master it all for cinema viewing.
Here a small sample painting the character of 25 frames, this is only a second of animation.
We paint and film each single picture.
But at least we have already done:
- 10 meetings
- 3 events with 350 people (+ one extra event on the way)
- 1 casting day
- 3 Days Rehearsal
- 2 Days Shooting
- 1 week editing
- 1 week scriptwriting
- 1 week research with 4 mood boards
- 1 week for 2 animated tests
- 1 week to create the whole storyboard
- 2 days to print the 5500 frames
- 3 days to photographs object for reference for the paintings
- and about 2 to 3 weeks administration to organise it all
- and lot of thinking and solid “dreaming”!
Well we are workaholics!
