Compin' for Cyfle

I loved an animating this scene, it was the first bit of lip sync I had done in a long time and I forgot how much I enjoyed it... its a really smug feeling outwitting that sound track and getting the lip shapes and expressions to fit *smug.*
It doesn't last long though, when you put the scene into After Effects and realize that now.... you have to learn after effects.

3 scenes down.... lots more to go!

Oh, remember that background test a few posts down? Here is a (...too low quality res) pic of the final scene.

Watch the Moon Pirates trailer here!

A better look at the panning background for the cheesy moon.

We only have another 2 weeks at Cyfle, and its been so much fun that I don't want to leave!!
I'm wondering if anyone will notice if I set up home under the desk and live here for a while, but the film is coming along, I'm compositing some of the scenes that I animated and there's always a buzz to see a scene finished.... and so much of the film is finished that people are buzzing all over the place.

Animation love.

Moon Pirates Update

Hello, been busy at Cyfle with the guys, we're in the last 2 weeks of our time on the course and our film Moon Pirates.
I've been working on some backgrounds, which are always fun, and bashing up that ship (designed by me and modeled in maya by the marvelous CG Ben and Matt) was very therapeutic.


Here is the final promo-poster for MOON PIRATES!! Designed by James White, who also illustrated the characters, and Allyn Thomas our director, who did the background (notice how much my ship got shrunken down up in the corner, lol!)

Below are some pictures of all our wonderful selves working away at Cyfle, posing with our characters (because sometimes you just have to,) discussing our work in progress animation with talented stop motion animator Tim Allen, and finally at the very bottom, at a production meeting with Rick villeneuve.
