“Luxy NYE: Hsu-Nami” Progress Update – February 10, 2013

As I approach the homestretch of the final semester. I enter into coloring and editing. I’ll have a rough cut and colored animation prepared soon.
Rough cut – end of the week
Colored Progress – February 25

When I look at my production, I think this video may end up having two releases. The first will be for school completion, but I’ll want to redo the background art and add a second layer of color animation. This debut music video must rock all of the socks.

New Animation Progress

The final stages of the the animation process are drawing near. Here are a few pencil tests taken from my most recent work. At the start of February, all rough animation will be complete. My final semester at KCAI will be dedicated to coloring, compositing, and editing. I’m in good shape to meet my deadline in May.

My homemade multi-plane camera system is reaching completion as well. I’ll be able to produce clean and consistent tests with this little marvel. Just cut a hole in an old coffee table and I’ll be attaching a camera mount for my DSLR.

Animatic Finalized

I have  the animatic finalized as far as shots, compositions, and timing. Little tweeks will be made as needed, but for the most part it’s done. I have a shot list put together, and I’ll have my rough animation completed in an update later today.

Animatic Progress

Will have rough animation posted once I have it in a presentable format. I’ve finished animating about the first minute in rough animation and chunks of finished shots. Official presentation of progress in October 22. Wil have comprehensive progress report assembled by that time.
