I’m seeing beavers when I close my eyes. This is my improved version of the animatic, ready for Friday, unless I decide to change anything in the week. Not sure about how I’ve done the osprey catching a fish, might be a bit too ominous? Not quite what I want. The new evil beaver design […]
Here’s something I put together to help me with the colour script.
Little bit of visual inspiration here. Nice to look at the pines and the lighting here.
Now that’s what I call a beaver.
Back in September, when we were given a vague brief for the collaboration project, I had an idea about a short film dedicated to Norwich and the memories I’ve collected being here in the last couple of years. All of us have been here, so I thought it would make a good collaboration. Then I […]
Just tried out this particular VR story and it made me cry very unexpectedly, so it was obviously doing something right. I’m sure if it was a short film, I would not have had the same reaction. A question I shortly answered by finding the theatrical version on YouTube. Huh. It’s the tale of a […]
Yesterday, I got a notification on my phone about a beaver related story running on BBC news. Quite pleasingly, it’s a very relevant story a report published on the effects of the reintroduced beavers in Scotland. The points I’m trying to make in my film are well covered here. There’s very few beaver positive stories […]
Here’s an improved version of last week’s beaver animatic. I’ve upped the pacing and the madness and made it more of a beaver-fever dream. I think it works a lot better than the last one. If I’m gonna improve it any more, I will probably begin to do rough animation for the animatic in TVPaint. […]
Yesterday, I attempted to start a new storyboard/animatic but ended up creating this test animation. If I carry on drawing beavers like I currently do, this is what my animation style will look like. I’m getting flash backs to sacks of flour here.
My biggest problem right now is that I haven’t taken the joke far enough. Jon’s advice is to balls to the wall mad with this, get the beavers riding falling trees rather than running away from them, set the world alight to have a deeper contrast between the beaver fever dream and beaver reality. This […]
