Making another Short Film!!!

I'm excited to say, I'll be working on my next short film. As some people know, I wasn't too happy with my first one. I was going through some stuff at home, and couldn't get the amount of time I needed to push this thing. But I had to wrap it up.

I was at least able to render it though, since I took care of the lighting, textures, and all of that stuff before beginning production on it in class (I thought it'd save time later to just be able to hit render when I was done, lol)

Back to the new film... I just finished timing out my boards for an animatic. I have some minor tweaks to make in the timing, but I think after getting some feedback it will be solid. A friend of mine did my character model, and I plan on texturing him soon, and getting him rigged up using Anzovin's The Setup Machine, and The Face Machine .

I've been working out the story off and on for about 6 months, and it's something that I've put my own experience into, so hopefully that shows through. I'm not sure if I'll post it yet. Maybe some work in progress stuff, like images, animation tests, etc. Nothing with the story playing in it's entirety though.

I have some other acting tests that I'm working on at the same time as the pre-production stuff for this short, but as soon as these tests are done, I'm going in all the way. I work about 50 hours a week at Crystal, so I won't have a HUGE amount of time to work on this, but I can't wait!!!
