Just a little something to keep you interested.
The poster was drawn before Xinyi Guo and Lie Yandi Leonard joined the group, plus the hair of the character isn't what it is in this poster anymore, so it's already irrelevent. But still, I like it.
Ok, so the animatic is done - today we'll be trying to focus on getting character symbols ready and starting on backgrounds. Our aim is to be animating as quickly as possible - if we can start before the end of the week, then that's fantastic.
We'll also be sorting out who is tackling the sound today as well. The Staminaid advert will likely be voiced by either myself or Lewis.
Me and Lewis have started putting together the preparation work for our film, working title "Is Your Fridge Running?". I'm working on the animatic for it, currently at the 26 second mark, and probably just under half way through at the moment. Lewis is working on the symbols we'll be using to animate the face of our main character.
We'll be trying to use a mixture of symbol-based and straight ahead animation to give it a clean, professional looking feel - though we may decide to go with 12 fps on the animation simply to save us time (which we're already short on).
Our aim is to have the shots worked out and divided between us by the end of the week, so that we can begin animating as quickly as possible.
I'll be uploading some of the design work we did over the summer later today, probably, so you can get a better look at what's already gone into this.
EDIT: It's no longer just me and Lewis. We're also working with Lie Yandi Leonard, and Xinyi Guo.
