The Soup That Got Away

Here's a drawing of my favourite saying 'The Soup That Got Away', it may seem a little odd, but it has a true meaning behind it. The way I see this phase is if you had a chance to get what you always wanted but you let it slip through your fingers and years later your reminiscing amongst friends and you'll say 'That Was The Day The Soup Got Away'.

Job Hunting

here its is sixteen weeks of solid work and my 3rd year animation film is finished hope you guys like it!

End of year evaluation

The film is finished, it’s done and dusted, the but the amount of work that had to be done in the final few weeks was epic and I’m glad Relentless cans are on sell down in the cafe, without those magnificent bad boy drinks, especially the berry one, I wouldn’t have been able to stay up late and finish Job hunting.

While animating on my film i bought two books to help me along the way, one was Drawn to life by Walt Stanchfield and Don Hahn and the other one was Character Animation Crash Course! By Eric Goldberg .Looking back now that my course work is completed I’ve learnt a heck load of new skills throw flash, using texturing layer and placing the alpha levels down, this year I mainly animated frame by frame instead of motion tween. I also worked with Scott Lewis this year whole provide me with five backgrounds and mike Morgan from my last year’s film created the sound effects and music. One thing that I will stress to myself again and again now is organising my work and to stay on schedule because over the Easter a small group of us had the opportunity to go visit Volda in Norway for acting in animation master class, I fell two weeks behind due to this but it was worth it. This trip was amazing, the amount of knowledge Robert Bennett (the acting lecture) pass on to us will never be forgotten and will always be applied to my animation. The most enjoyable part making this film was working with Scott making the back grounds, and while in Norway I had a few hours spare to work in our hotel room with Leon Dexter constantly giving me feedback while working on the fire fighters scene.

Looking back at the film I would have used a lot more camera moves and close ups on the characters faces to catch the expressions and I feel that the film is a little long. It would have been great if I could have used a lot more textures in flash and to experiment them in the way Chowder uses them. Again stressing about time keeping would try and stick to the schedule as much as I can compare to this year.

final major the last week!!!!!

its come to the last week of animating and as i would have expected from myself im behind in my productions, this was due the the ash cloud, myself, ken, James, toke and the two leons were out there on an acting and animating course back in the Easter break we had, but due to the ash cloud we were stuck out there . . . but we got back home and same two days later and we were suppose to be, this had a huge knock on effect to my work and fell behind.

luckily i have a weeks extension and hope to finish this film by Wednesday and with only 8 scenes to colour its looking promising

by the way my blog did have previous post of roughs from my film but they need to be taken down for the glammies
