A process






 Oh. Also I'm done with production. I might go back and make personal touch ups in a week or so, but for now I'm done.   Soon I'm going to make a post of all the cool things I made (fully animated scenes, boards, backgrounds, and etc that didn't make it into the movie).

I'm also cutting a short teaser trailer.

The Epic Jouney Cataloged.

I thought I would take a moment today to chronicle the journey that my film has gone along to end up where it is today.

Initially it was going to be a very epic 2-3 minute trailer for a feature idea I have with the same characters. However many people said, "Make a film, not a film trailer", So I forged a new story, with only the Tiger remaining as the lead.

But that story just has TOO much dialogue and exposition. Also time travel was pretty difficult to handle in a film that short along with an engaging story.

So out went the time travel, out went the dragon, out went pretty much everything except for the simple tale of a Tiger, a portal, and his missing father.

Oh, and the Tiger became an exorcist.

In my head I loved that exorcism scene but it was not working on paper at all and I can't believe I was EVER cool with those opening shots at all.

So that became this...

But still the lab scene and ending were horrendously boring, not to mention had no consequences or stakes.

So after much more work and brainstorming, it finally became this.

Yeah, I know it's password protected, you'll have to ask me directly for the password, because I don't want this publicly available yet. Also it's got some big spoilers (obviously) and if you haven't seen it and are coming to the screening I'd rather it be a surprise for you there.

Isn't it amazing how much a film changes over production? They really take on a life of their own! This is one of the reasons I want to do this forever!

Picture lock is comin.

That's right. It's going to be picture lock in a MATTER OF DAYS.

Time to do more character animation.

The ghosts (excluding the dragon beast) are being counted as fx animation and therefore will not show up in the picture lock "uncolored" cut, except in select shots.

That's all until after picture lock. Now back to the "drawing board".

A Lil' Dental Music...

"A little dental music,
strings a strumming,
flutes a trilling.

Numbing minds and calming nerves,
while steps away, the beast is drilling.
Muzak in the lobby,
helps the patients to ignore.

The fact that writhing agony,
waits right behind the door."
- Howard Ashman (1982)




Here are more score samples by the awesome Daniel Rothblum. There is no picture because I don't want to post too much of my film to compromise it for festival eligibility.  It is not finalized, but I'm loving it so far.


Easiest: Sitting down to animate.

Hardest: Making sure I finish by picture lock.
