Film Stuff: The Discard Pile

No less that 2000 discarded storyboard panels, some of which are seen here, all of which were at some point an integral part of our story, none of which are there now. The story has changed substantially, almost every week for the past 3 or 4 months. Come to think of it, its been over a month without any major story changes. I guess that means we're almot satisfied. There's still some work to be done on the leica reel which I may or may not post at some point, and then we can start actually making the film.

I think my last film related post was about the pitch presentation. The only thing from that story that remains is the bare bones of it. It's still about a walking signal that wants to be a dancer, but that's about the only thing that has remained constant. It is much, much simpler now. We cut out the entire electropolis world and are focusing a lot more on the character and his effect on people who take life too seriously.

Check back in half a year and we may have the finished film up and running.


I've been taking this extra digital painting course at school, so been trying out a few techniques. I don't really know what this is supposed to be about, I just kinda started drawing and this is what came out. I kinda like this approach to art, not a whole lot of planning, just letting it tell you what it should be. Not really a suitable approach for draftsmanship though, just fun to do on the side.

Demo Reel 2009

Animation Demoreel 2009 from Adam Pockaj on Vimeo.

My 2009 Demo real as it is. There are some things I would have liked to have gone back and fixed, but time is short I'm afraid. Gotta keep moving forward...

A "Reel Breakdown" should be posted sometime within the next few days.

Dialogue in the 3rd dimention

3D Dialogue Animation from Adam Pockaj on Vimeo.

Semester Six is off and rolling. Having spent half of the Christmas break working on our beloved leica reel for our film, I have neglected to post recently. Here's something from last semester that I added a bit to during the break. A dialogue scene in 3D. It's still looking pretty mechanical and there's some weird lighting stuff going on near the end, but its probably as finished as its going to get for the time being.

"Andy Rig" by John Doublestein, One Eyed Green Guy rig by Mike Watters.

Audio, of course, from 'Dumb and Dumber'.
