Big Thank you

Well we have come to the end. I can't believe it. The project nobody thought could be finished is finished on time. We still can do some more to perfect the film for degree show, and we have to start thinking about what festivals to take the film to, but we finished it. We had some tears during the making of this film, but I hope we had some laughs too.

Firstly I would just like to say a big thank you to the teachers Mike Smith, Mike Hirsch, Kieran, Jared and Dan for all the help guiding the film.

I would like to thank the voice artists John Bell, Kim Crow and Chase Padgett for lending their talents and being understanding. Big thanks to the sound designer James Hodder for doing such an awesome job with the sound design.

I would like to thank Harvey and Mo for helping out when they didn't really need to. I would like to say thank you to my brother Lewis and Neil for helping me out with the film.

Of course a big thank you to my crew. Elisha and Harry did a great job on the background. Al and James, I know we had some problems, but thanks a bunch.

Finally I would like to say a massive thank you to Simon for being the best co-director a guy could have. Thanks pal.

All that is left to say is that I hope everyone likes the film and that we did you guys, we did it.

The Day before Submission

Ok it's the day before submission. Luckily I was going through the film creating screenshots for the shot list and I noticed some last minute mistakes.

  1. The banana shot had the old background in it.
  2. The Prof's Goodbye shot had the old RAM in it before I whited out the eyes and the chair was moving too much anyway.
  3. I thought the the Prof was animating weird in the Competent shot, so I had a look again at the flash file and compared it to my drawings. I found out that Harrison had missed 6 frames and duplicated others to fill in the gap.
I fixed all these things yesterday and today so hopefully we will be able to render and the movie will be finished for submission.

New Version Film

Here is the latest version of the film. It just needs to be doubled checked that everything is ok and rendered finally for submission for Friday. It still could use some cleaning up for the degree show but it's good enough for submission.


Aftereffects Tests

Here are all the scenes I composited in Aftereffects. Simon helped me out a lot and did some extra lighting effects to them. Thanks Simon.

Progress Report

Hi,

Here is just another post explaining what has gone on the last few days and what hopefully will be going on until the deadline of Friday. First of all, I must give full praise to the sound guy James. He has done an amazing job with the sound. In fact he did such a good job that when we look at the previous copy of the film I realised the most of my edits weren't necessary. We did go away and cut down one scene, added a puff of smoke and added a TV switching off at the end. I felt that it ended the film quite nicely. I tried to do this pan, but it was just proving to difficult to do in Aftereffects, so we decided just to cut to single shots.

Hopefully, Simon will get a finished cut of the film done by early next week and hen we can spend the rest of the week cleaning up the film.

New Version of Film

Here is another version of the film. I have tried to fix some of the problems that arose in the previous version. It still needs finessing a tad.
