Shake, Rattle, and Roll

Well... was that an underwhelming Oscars? I think so.

Once again my pick for Best Animated Short didn't win. My choice was a toss up between Day & Night or The Gruffalo. Oh well. Congrats to all the winners.

One more picture to keep you hungry people off my back.

Still a few changes here and there with the lighting and associated effects. Why is the lighting now red? What's with the camera tilt? Hmm...

Been a while. Feel like I'm saying that a lot on here.

As the title of this post says, there have been some changes to my film. Due to various reasons, I've had to change the rig I'm using for my film. I'm now using the Blake rig by Jason Baskin. I've been busting my everything trying to catch up and get myself in a good place to finish my film on time.

Here are some stills of what things are shaping up to look like with Blake.

Still in the blocking phase, but hope by weekends end to be finished with blocking. As you can probably see with the vending machine, still some minor work to be done here. Should start animating this Monday/Tuesday.

Who needs sleep?? Psh.

Been learning as I go.

In Progress: Part I

Wow, so I can't let this thing die.

The holiday break is over and back to school. Unfortunately I wasn't able to work on my short during the break as I didn't have a computer to work on. Since that was the case, I took advantage of the downtime to do a little reading, enjoy the company of family and friends, and get in a little video gaming.

Now it's business time. First week back to class and I'm putting in overtime everyday to get this thing moving. Will post some pictures of my short as a work in progress. Right now I'm working on my lighting. Waiting for a few small things to get finished on my rig, then animate!!!

Here's the first one to get you going (don't mind his eyes, he'll have them eventually)

easter egg in this shot. can you find it?

looking for something sweet to listen to? I've been jamming to this while working:
