Latest Version

Hey team,

here is the latest version. This one is color graded, has the string quartet and a first sound design.

Password is the usual…

Exhausted but happy

I am back on the other side of the world. The jet lag is taking it easy on me and things are going quite well. But maybe I should begin further back.

The last weeks (or rather months) were probably the most intense ones. Right after the 3D renders were done I jumped into the compositing stage with the ever closer coming deadline looming over my head. 3-4 hours of sleep per night were pretty much the most I could afford. But there were still a few things that needed taking care of, like fluid/smoke simulations and then some. And while I ticked off shot by shot, other things came to light that needed fixing. Thankfully, my wife kept feeding me during that time and made sure that I showered enough so that I wouldn’t offend the noses of others around me ;o)

Then in December some great things happened. We got a composer on board who was happy to write us a score in the shortest of times. Not only that, but Corentin (the composer) organized a string quartett and a recording session for February … from which I am writing right now, because my non existing knowledge in this field isn’t actually needed.

The other thing that got done was the color grading. For that I sent the project over to Belgium, where my friend Olivier took good care of it and treated it with a very pleasing look. By the middle of January I had applied all of his settings locally and was pretty much ready to take the plane back to the other side of the world.

All this happened while we had to tackle a pretty major project at work with the worst clients we’ve ever had. So a relaxed timetable was pretty much out of question.

So I had two more weeks until I would have to get on the plane, thinking that I was done. But far from it! Being as picky as I am, I managed to spend most of my time until the last day before the flight working on the film … and there is still some stuff I wanna change, but now can’t. So I assume that my part is done…

Two days ago I arrived in Paris, where I met Corentin for the first time. We are right now at the studio finishing up the recording session, at 4 in the morning. The musicians left a few hours ago, having given us a wonderful performance. Corentin and Vincent (the sound engineer) are almost finished massaging all the stuff. Next, all the audio material will go straight to Brussels, where Yves will mix everything together and marry the strings with his sound design. We will use the first rough mix this week to send off a DVD just in time to make it to Annecy, the most important european animation festival.

And because I am too tired to come up with more stuff to talk about I will regard this as the end of my posting. Enjoy some pics of todays session.
