So this week we began our final pieces of animation. We have each been given clips from creature comforts to work with between 12-25 seconds long. Mine is 12 seconds but with the added acting at the beginning and end I think its going to end up being more like 20. We have 3 weeks in which to shoot this and then we start editing our showreels!
We are using 2 puppets for this final piece, only one of mine is talking and the other is reacting. I am using Darwin and Peg Leg Hastings from the Pirates film and because it is set at and parent & baby night I had to make some (pretty gruesome) babies. They are both sat down throughout and holding babies so its all purely character based animation. I managed to get my first 146frame shot done on thus/fri and tomorrow I start the next one.
I don't have many photos, but I did jazz the set up a bit after that one was taken!
