"I love animation." that's the look. like you've been living in a cave.

seq14 rough composite done. only three more sequences to go (although seq17 isn't animated, yet, unfortunately - lots of sand in that one, still). aim to have a very rough cut up by monday. this week has seen solid forward movement, and hopefully that will carry over into tidy-up compositing and then waves and clouds.

section of seq12

you can't see the tidal wave yet, but there is one.

what will happen to me...

...if I don't finish this film?at least the yellow submarine mug will arrive in a few days.

seq07 rough composite

these rough composites retain many artifacts to be eliminated, namely the borders and paper/background layers, amongst other things. the timing is rough, to be trimmed down, and wave and general cloud animation remains to be animated.
