Layout/Pose Test Reel

video

This is the layout/pose test reel for the film. Layout (background drawing) was the part I was dreading the most, but it turned out to be somewhat less excruciating than I predicted. All the backgrounds are drawn now, however the character poses on this reel were pretty rushed. The actual animation pose tests will be a lot more refined. This was a good way to see how things work (or don't work) one step closer to the final film. There are a few things I'll have to adjust between now and the end, but this is more or less what it is going to be like.

Electropolis Online

Our 3rd year film from last year, "Electropolis" will be online from November 6th to Nov 15 for the Puchon international Student Animation Festival. Due to swine flu they decided to make the entire festival online, so that it can be accessed from the comfort of our own fallout shelters. You can check it out here .

EDIT: okay, it turns out you have to create an account on the PISAF website, and even then it doesn't seem to be working. I'll get back to you on that...

EDIT: okay, I'll be honest, I have no idea how that website is supposed to work. If I figure it out I'll keep you posted

EDIT: okay, it doesn't seem to work for me in Firefox, however, it does play in Internet Explorer (albeit not very well). So, if you want to see it, you can create an account and watch it in something other than Firefox.

Quote Unquote Final Leica Reel

video

Well, this is the quote unquote final leica reel that we had to hand in today. I will still probably tweak a few things, but this is more or less what its going to be. The screening will be on wednesday (at noon, I think) in the SCAET building. Personally I can't wait. I've only seen a few other's leica reels so far, so its going to be cool to see everyone elses.
