A Perry Update from Me to You
I'm happy to report that pre-production is running smoothly and I've recently passed the milestone of completing my rough boards. I'm pretty satisfied with how it’s turning out though it doesn't take a rocket scientist to say this will be no walk in the park to complete. Currently the boards run abit over 250 panels (I think 269 to be exact). Once I get the animatic/narration done I'm sure some numbers may change depending on pacing of the short and making sure it will play out well.
With the boards all scanned and saved on the computer it was no question that I had to put up all the originals on the walls of my apartment. Transformation of my 1 bdrm apartment into an animation studio is no doubt in full operation.
Now that the boards are done I'm moving on to working on the animatic, writing the actual narration for the short, working on character designs and trying out some style/animation tests.
There’s no denying this is a massive project to take on (especially solo), yet isn’t that what it’s all about? To use a clichéd phrase “Go big or go home!”
If any of you have any comments or questions regarding the short, process, or myself feel free to drop me a comment, they are always appreciated!
