Animation

Tonight will be just a little update, because I will go to sleep now. Tomorrow I’m leaving for Germany, because there I will shoot the final scene (in the film the first) on a beautiful graveyard.

My 8mm fish eye lens arrived this week as well and I already did some HDRI shoots. Will do some rendertests soon.

Here’s a little progress excerpt:

and this was the blocking

Alrighty! So during the last days we have finished 90% of the necessary shots to be filmed/photographed. That means that only one scene, which has about 5-7 shots, needs to be taken care of.

So what’s the verdict of shooting background for CG?

  1. If you need a specific weather for the shoot and you have a camera on standby and readily available, make sure that everything is prepared, so that you can run to your set and start shooting.
  2. Doing your shoot alone can be a bitch. Try to get a friend to help as a stand-in and/or assistant … it really helps a lot. Having somebody else on the set also eases your mind, because you won’t always have to keep an eye on the equipment.
  3. Try to relax… You will realize that many things are out of your control when you shoot in public. You might have to wait easily half an hour to get the right moment for your shot. So take an MP3 player or a book with you  ;o)

(this is really just a small fraction of things to keep in mind and applies to traditional shooting as well)

Next to that my friend Sebastien is busy sculpting the details for the characters and texturing them. I might soon be able to show something. And I have also completed the new blocking of the film. The new length of the film is now about 6 minutes net (so without titles and credits). A small extract can be seen here (I will update these shots when I get to work on them):
