Actual picture lock

Here you go:

I realize that the horse should turn more, and that there's a black spot, and that the sky shot should probably have birds reacting to the gun shots, and other things, but let's just enjoy this for now, shall we?

Picture locked!

So my film is finally picture locked. I'd have a sample of it up here for you, but the file is over a gig. I'll render out a new one before I leave the lab and then I guess upload it here tomorrow when I'm back down here to give my gig file to Bethany. Great! Time to start clean-up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ugh.

Animation - Done!

Remember this day, February 25, as the day I finished animating my senior thesis. Animating, not clean-up, color, backgrounds, or special effects, but animating. It's a big step. Hopefully the next portion of my life will go way more easily. It probably won't. I'm going to put up a picture locked version of my film on Saturday or something because I have to have it done anyway.

I realized Spring Break is like two and a half weeks away the other day and I freaked out. Where has this semester gone? Where has college gone? Did I live it up enough and make a decent amount of mistakes? Definitely not. This is not the place to wax about how I'd do college again, though, so let's just watch a small piece of animation I did this week instead. I realize the horse needs to turn more and stuff, but just live with it.

February 4th's update

So, guys, here's what I've done for the past two weeks. Not all the shots in this clip are new, but maybe you ("you" meaning the zero people who actually read this) will realize which shots are the newer ones. The run time is around 3:49 now, which is great for me. Three more weeks of actual animation left!! Picture lock by February 26!!!!!!!!!!! That's going to be so hard.

The reason I'm picture locking then is because Bethany Sparks has graciously agreed to do my sound for a paltry $500. That makes me nervous, but only because I'm anal retentive and that means I'm giving something major about my film over to someone else. I'll be happy about it later. My friend Alex has agreed to do the music (with the help of our friend Duncan) for $200 (or more depending on work load). That's also great. Wowee.

Anyway, here's the stuff. Note: I realize that there are two shots where the guy puts his hand on his head (when he sits up and then the shot where he runs his hand through his hair). During cleanup, the hand won't be there as he sits up.
