Film has been COMPLETED!

THE PLAGUE BEARERS HAS BEEN COMPLETED!


I've been quiet for the past few weeks, the reason for which would be that I was busy getting the film done!
Well, I am very, very pleased to announce that the film has been completed! I went in for my graduation review last week and it went very well.

So, what now? Well, currently Jake and I are in the process of making a site for the film as well as prepping it for both film festival and online distribution. The plan is to have the film available by Halloween (PERFECT TIMING), and I will be updating the blog with more information as it becomes available.

At this point however, I just want to say a very loud, very proud, and very big THANK YOU! Thank you to everyone who came by this blog, who read it, who was interested, who sent a shout out, who commented, EVERYONE. Thank you so much!

So everybody, please stay tuned! There will be many more updates.

Storyboard to film comparison



One of the things I'd like to do after PB is complete is a storyboard to film comparison reel. Even stills will do. 

I've been striving to match the storyboards as much as possible, and it's been a very good learning process.

Backgrounds are a go-go

Though animation is not 100% finished, I've started the backgrounds and as a result, we've got finished shots. ... shhh, it hasn't sunk in yet.

CAN YOU BELIEVE WE'VE GOT BACKGROUNDS AND FINISHED SHOTS!!???

oh man.

The best face from the film


If anything happens on this film... regardless of how it turns out, whether or not people like it, if anything ever matters....

It's how much I love this face. XD

I WANT STICKERS OF THIS MADE. 

Face notes

Working in animation, I have relearned the value of reference sheets. For the longest time on Plaguebearers, I oddly enough did not have a reference file on stand by. I fixed this some time last month, and now you all get some goodies! 




I love that Addison has a tongue color when I don't remember there being any point in the film where he has a tongue showing. BUT YOU GOTTA BE PREPARED.

Word to anyone working on an animated project: Always have reference handy! Especially with necessary colors that you can easily access.


Getting ever closer to that poisonous donut...

The film was on hiatus, but now it's not.

Oh man...  where was I? What happened? Almost a year has gone by??
ZOË, WHERE WERE YOU???

Hiatus, sadly. Hiatus no more, however, as the film has a final deadline and I aim to meet it.

I'll be posting again, so YAY! LET'S BRING THIS BABY BACK!

To my supporters and all interested parties, I want to thank you for everything, for caring about this film, for being interested in it, and I want to apologize to everyone for the lack of any news.

This film is going to be finished, and it's going to be good.
