So, a lot of people are asking to see progress on my short film, and it's just reminding me that I really need to redevelop my existing website so that I can post my dailies. I'm starting to sketch out some new ideas, so I'll let you know when that's in order. It's long overdue...
Here's a quick look at my first half of blocking (plus).
"Misfit Magician - First Half, Blocking Plus"
The blocking passes always seem more challenging to start, because that's when I have to make all my decisions on acting, poses, etc - but, it's also very fun to see this film take shape. Supposedly this week I should be completely done with all blocking so that next week is just refining of the first third... I hope that happens! It's been really busy with my workouts (I hired a physical trainer to help get my waistline down a few inches before my wedding), and we've had company for the past few days which has been great, and that lizard is still under my dishwasher (I think)... So I just have to be diligent and stick to my dailies. It helps that I'm super excited about it.
Also, just a quick note on how awesome Animation Mentor is, again... yesterday afternoon I got a call from Suzanne who is a counselor with student care at AM. She was merely calling to see how I was doing (presumably because I took that LOA last month, and now we're halfway through the term, 6 weeks from completing the courses altogether). I can't believe how fast this time went. But I gave her all of my positive news, including how much better my mindset is this time around, and how glad I was that I took the LOA when I did. She was glad to hear it, and hopes to see me at graduation on January 12. Wow, that's coming fast! I'm so psyched.
Well - gotta get back to work! It's another beautiful day in Orlando - gotta use it well. :)
