D4M: Project Lost Files Check-In 4


I have still been working on the credits for the animation piece.  I've put a lot more in from previously.  I sped it up.  But after careful consideration, I really have not liked that it's sped up.  So I'll be slowing it back down.  Also, since we don't know exactly what music we'll be using, I've left that slot blank.   The credits are still uncompleted.  I need to readjust the roles that the crew members are contributing.

Since I have spent much of last Tuesday defining everyone's roles, I have come to the understanding that all is not as it seems....  Pretty much, we're not exactly following the the assignments we had signed up for.  That's not a bad thing.

Here's an example of the work that I did to identify what everyone should be doing.

I have also done the weekly Thursday recap, as always.

So, please, stay tuned.

D4M: Project Lost Files Check-In 3

I've been working for the most part this past week on the credits.  I've compiled the list of the people that have helped in the creation of this project and I've been adjusting and editing some of their roughs as parts of the credits.  It still isn't completed.  I am not sure how much I can do without the progress of other members in the project and having access to some of their animations or images.

These are the credits so far:
You should note that there are no more images/animations after 11 seconds.

I plan, when I have more images, to intersperse them between animations, so they're not clumped in patches throughout the credits.

I have also done the weekly Thursday recap.

Nothing new has been created, but we've been working on what we have and uploading our pieces bit by bit onto our dropbox account.

D4M: Project Lost Files Check-In 2

So, now I'm recapping.  I've been the eavesdropper in the group by being the scribe and I know everything that's going on:

  • Animators are beginning to play around with the characters and they produced a little demo reel.
  • I, along with the head of editorial, created a website.  It wasn't that bad, but when we were editing the design of the website, we ran into a lot of technical difficulties to the point where when we finally succeeded creating the website we envisioned, we were quite ecstatic.
  • You should also note that there's been a rough animatic created for the animation.
  • Also, a Facebook page has been made, YouTube account, and the best of all, a logo.

All of these links are provided on our blog.  However, if you want to go now, they're down below.

D4M: Project Lost Files Check-In

So now that all the voting has settled, I've teamed up with Project Emma!  Ha ha, but I have actually joined Emma's pipeline.  We'll be working to create a 2D animation.  If you'd like to see the original proposal, click here.

My role(s) in the team are as 
  • scribe/pipeline (aka the secretary) - as of now, I organize and keep track of what is going on during the meetings.
  • animator - self-explanatory
  • publication - possible make a book once the process is done, like a "the art of...." kind of book.  Who knows?
Anyway... if you want to see the progress that I've contributed to the team so far, please check out our blog!  I have submitted the notes for everyone to see, published the director's goals and where she wants us to be by the next meeting, as well as set up a crew list with Renee.

I have also dabbled a bit into the festival aspect, if we were to submit and I have found this one festival that's deadline is shortly after our project is finished.  However, it is in Spain.  So if we get accepted, maybe a flight?  I'm not sure.  Anyway, this is the one: Libelula Animation Festival.

I am excited for this project.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.  I hope you're interested as well.
