Rough cut

I've made a rough cut of my film, and this is timed out pretty close to what the final version will be. I'm still missing a few key shots, I've put descriptions of action instead. I also cut a couple of shots I felt were unnecessary. Overall, I'm shooting to have the rough animation fully finished by senior reviews, complete with pencil backgrounds. Nothing will be colored, the color frames in this cut are just there to fill the space and show what the film could look like. I'm hoping to complete it over the summer with colors included.

Here is a link to my film, Vimeo is not letting me post an actual video on this blog.

First 30 seconds in tiedown!

So animation is going slower than I had hoped, but here is the first 30 or so seconds of my film in rough animation and compositing. It looks a little rushed right now, so I have to play with timing a little, and it's missing the element of the dark clouds rising as the ghost swoops down and that engulf the main characters and pull them down into the dark world. I'm cautiously optimistic about how it's turning out, even though at the rate I'm going I don't see this film colored by the end of the semester.
