Pre-Production: VFX Animatics

Here's the animatics for the thumbnails I posted earlier. Some of them worked better than others. On some I restricted myself quite a bit on the motions as I didn't want to push the director into a shot or angle they didn't want to do.

Pre-Production: VFX

Way behind with this blog now. We're well into production now with 3 weeks off uni for Easter at the end of this month. Three weeks off uni doesn't mean three weeks off work though.

Things have been crazy busy on the work front, and it's been difficult finding time to get everything done. In order to attempt to keep on top of uni work I've let the blog slide alot. But I'll be trying to keep it up to date better from now on. After all third times a charm.

My dissertation was handed in a couple of weeks ago now so luckily I no longer have that to worry about. It went quite well but I found I didn't spend as much time on it as I would of liked since I also had to try and keep up with production work at the same time.

Anyway, onto the actual post. This time I'll be posting my pre-production for another project I'm an animator in. This one is a VFX project in which essentially, an elephant wanders through the streets of Cardiff. Filming for it took place a few weeks ago and it was very very cold carrying and guarding the equipment in the city centre. I'm due to start animating for this project sometime next week, if I manage to catch up with my other animation work...
