Animation

Animation was a very important stage of this project as it is the production and the medium of film I am creating. But with the schedule mapping out the plan for each day to know that I had enough time for each day.  However to make it clear to everyone in studios and myself each... Continue Reading →

Schedule

This was a basic schedule I had laid out for the first 12 weeks of this semester. This is to make sure I have enough time to animate all of the scenes that I need to. Working off the animatic I worked out roughly how much time I would need to animate each scene by... Continue Reading →

Test Footage

Before I move on from the Pre-Production Stage to Production I must make sure that everything I have made works well for the goal I have set out for with each part. For example that the puppets move well enough to animate while still looking like my original designs. Therefore I test each part to... Continue Reading →

And so I decided to make the main two characters myself and get assistance with the other two.   I got assistance from Giulia Marcolini making the red cat puppet. I went through beforehand...

Puppet Making

This is the largest segment for me of the pre-production of this film as I took two armature sets and decided to scale them down (to make realistic child size to the set) rather than risking the set becoming too large by scaling them up. And so the first stage was in the metal workshop... Continue Reading →

Maquettes

The Maquettes were an important stage of my pre-production as they were the first initial way of seeing if my designs and plans work as real life 3D objects, therefore highly important to check scale errors that may have occurred.    Firstly I worked on the puppets, Crafting out basic wire frames to size and...
