Shipping off

"Tall Tales from the Trail" has been completed, and is currently in the process of being shipped into various cracks and corners of the world. Most festivals will announce their screenings later this autumn, others a bit earlier. So while we play the waiting game, here's some thoughts I've had with the production still fresh in mind:

I wrote something related to this, 
but changed my mind. Please 
enjoy it regardless.
  • When working solo, keeping yourself motivated might sometimes be quite the chore. When talking to yourself doesn't lead anywhere, try getting a second opinion.
  • Working continuously over a longer period of time is always better than bits and pieces now and then. The first option is a luxury on an unfunded project.
  • Animation isn't just visual. Music, voices, sound effects... Jam it in there!
  • A broken computer will slow down your workflow about a 1000%. Get a new one. Your body will adjust to the starvation after a while.
  • Start every day with a list!

I'll keep this list updated when more comes to mind. Can't get enough of those lists!

    Where's the film?

    This is my face right now.
    Just lettin' you know "Tall Tales" is still going strong! I'm in the middle of moving at the moment, but should be set up again by the start of July.

    Thought I'd post some proof of progress. They vary in degree of completion.

    I made a little Tumblr to dump all the little stuff that doesn't deserve its own little post. You know, for the little people.

    Also been foolin' around with remaking some backgrounds. Check out the changes on the lake city entrance:

    A journey to the depths of After Effects

    It's been a while since I updated, so I thought I'd chime in with some progress. I'm currently mashing together an early draft of "the lake venture" in AE and it's starting to look like something already:

    Draftin' some drafts.
    Since I'm just starting out it's probably going to look somewhat different in the final result when I've had the time to play around with color adjustments and the environments. Right now I'll have to keep my main focus the animation.

    The next weeks will be very exciting. I'm already in the possession of some pretty bomb voice acting, and the music is coming along nicely. I'll reveal more of this at a later point, but for now you can enjoy Nathan the lakeprince's personal soundtrack of the day (by Primus. Thanks Primus!):
