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.

Score Samples

Hey hey,

Not much to say this week but, I'm working on my new 2nd half of my film, which can be seen in storyboard format by CLICKING HERE.

I've been a little sick, which just makes me tired which is no fun, so I'm trying to deal with that while I animate and draw backgrounds all bloody day every single day. I've already cut some scenes of my new ending, but I'm TRYING SO DAMN HARD TO FINISH IT LIKE IT IS THERE.

I've realized that my panther has become the fun character to animate, and the tiger is SO borrrrrrring, that I will certainly be toning his animation down, making it more limited, thus saving myself time.

Not much else to say besides I'm working hard hard hard.

Oh. Here's a score sample. I'm meeting with my composer tomorrow to go over more specifics!
