no posts in a month?! i've been neglecting this poor blog (not to mention my social life.. sorry friends!) as the end of the year approaches, and the deadline for the final animation looms.
A number of us have been practically living in the animation studio, staying there to work until the security guards come to kick us out at 10:30 every night. But the end is near!
Everyone is in the process of doing their final online edits and sound mixes. I'm still recording some foley with Matt, and synching up audio to my animation.
Yesterday, we spent an hour making sizzling noises by dropping burning matches into a glass of water. We had a dry old box of matches to work with, so it was quite an effort to actually light the little buggers, and only a few of them worked! Enough to get a few good takes at least.
The good news is - I've finished the visual side of things! Or at least - It's beyond my control now, as I've already transferred the visuals to betacam. So no more endless tinkering. (damn).
Here are some stills from the film. Oh, and i've settled on the title 'Lucille'. Titles are the hardest!
