11/25 Animation

Ok, here's the stuff I got done for class tomorrow. The part that's storyboard is stuff that I should have had done, but didn't get to. That's alright though, because those two shots are fast and easy. I think my animation has gotten a lot better, but I'm also a whole lot slower. Them's the breaks, though.

You can't really see the damsel during part of the lunge sequence (the third shot) because they're all muddled together and her lines are so light, but trust me, she's there and she's pissed.

Also, the video seems to have gone insane and uploaded sound from the rest of the movie. It's supposed to stop after the cowboy looks up, so don't bother with the rest of it.

The part where there's a zoom to the damsel's face is supposed to shake as if the cowboy is skidding to a halt. I'll either do that or cut it. I could also just have the cowboy jerk forward and back in the next shot to show him stopping in front of her. Whatever.

The Zombie Damsel's first appearance

OK so I did this shot today. It's right after the cowboy has run through the group of zombies after his hat, which has floated away because he fell down. I think the cowboy's animation is pretty good, but that the Damsel's needs some major cleanup and more frames later on.

After this shot, there's going to be a view of just the zombie damsel, and the camera is going to shake and zoom in as if the cowboy is still skidding to a halt in front of her.

Then she'll lunge, he'll fall, and things go from there.

Look at me! I updated without having to!

Some Color Keys

Ok, I'm doing this like six seconds before I have to go present my film to the grad students. Here are some color keys for the first and last portions of the film. I'll have the red (middle) portions up later, I guess. I'm just asking whether they like the film to be sepia or regular. What do you like? Tell me. The sepia is just a quickie Photoshop filter, and I think it could definitely use less shades of color. I'll see if I can whip something like that up later. Holy crap I'm late.
