Making Of

A behind the scenes look at the film. As part of the submission we had to produce a 'making of' film documenting the production process. A few folk have expressed interest in seeing it so I've uploaded it.

This was made right at the end of production when I was pretty worn out, so much as I tried, I don't sound very alive. Maybe I'll hire a narrator to re-do it...

Hey there folks! I'm noticing some people are linking to this blog, which no longer updates (the film's finished!) so here are some links to some more current work:

I finished Trooper about 3 weeks now (seems like 3 days) and the Degree Show is now open! You can see Trooper and all the other films from my year on the website!

Or visit the Degree Show here in Dundee to see all the films in superior sound and picture quality.

A super quick concept painting for the poster to experiment with layout and colour. What do you all think?

And coming up to the Finish Line...

One for the log. Today I got the final music for the hand in from Hans Zimmer's secret love child Sarah and it's getting added to the film with along with the sounds Tom and I recorded tomorrow. I've nearly finished scene 2B, which would only leave scene 43B. However, I've now divided that into scene 43B and 43C - so I've given myself an extra scene to do but actually reduces the amount of animation required while at the same time making that part of the film work better. These should be finished tomorrow too. Then I just need to piece together all the components I've collected for the making of reel and Bob's your Uncle, Fanny's your Aunt, I'm ready for the hand in! Then it's putting together the folio and preparing for the degree show and getting some much wanted sleep. The end is in sight.
