Today I plan to start animating my film even though I have a few puppets and backgrounds that I still want to work on. My animation is minimal so there wont be a lot to do but i figure I should get started soon. I hope to finish the whole thing by the end of this weekend, but that is just a goal for now.

this weekend

I worked on some backgrounds and some more flash puppets. I went to the job fair and saw a few companies. they seemed pretty interested in the things i designed for flash.

How it's going

This weekend was pretty hectic as far as my senior project was concerned. I shot my film for most of the weekend and it took a big chunk of my days. I was also able to see Laika's Coraline and I liked it a lot, but also found it to be a bit creepy. As far as flash work I still have a few simple puppets to finish and so I'll be working on that a little more today.

This Weekend

This weekend I completed a puppet for my final animation in this class. I was also working really hard to get my set ready to shoot for my stop motion senior project. I really wanted to see the Coraline movie but I did not get to.

Walk Cycle

This is my walk cycle, I think it turned out alright. She walks in a rather goofy manner though, I think it's the big feet and be cause there is no separate heel and toe.

Work to be finished

The only things I have to finish are the second rotoscope and the walk cycle with my character. I think I will be able to finish.

Lip Sync

This is my lip syn animation, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out

Second Jump

I don't know why this movie isn't exactly like the flash file but this is it. I think the jump looks okay.

These Past Few Days

These past few days I've been working on my lip sync, my storyboards, and my script. I have also been trying to finish my second jump but it's been giving me some problems. During the jump my character breaks into different parts for some reason. This weekend I was also working really hard to finish my puppets and set for my senior project. I have alot more work this quarter then I expected.
