Got my head up in the clouds...

2:15p.m. on April 6th, 2008---I officially called my first fully animated short film, "Fight or Flight" done and rendered that 95 second bad boy out! It's in the can, despite the shock on Friday I quickly regained ground and put Humpty Dumpty back together again! Not ONE all-nighter, I kept a clean record on that front--I think the latest I ever stayed up, while working on my film was like 2 in the morning. So it can be done all of you incoming fall '08 freshmen! I won't actually post the film until after the Open Show, but never fear---here are some silly critters that helped fuel one of my character's personality:

My little boogie buddy, Kiwi. Very appropriate to how I'm feeling now that my film is in the can. If I had Kiwi on me right now--this is exactly what he'd be doing. *Filmed this around Feb. of last year*

And of course, the second-slightly fatter and grayer influence:

"WHAT! You're DONE!"

"I am not amused, but....

a small wink of congratulations anyways."

Yet another quirk of Annie: She winks. I'll just look over at her at random and one of her eyes will be closed. It's so funny. Even better: it's a slow wink, so all the more entertainment. Sadly couldn't get this trait into my film cat, Pilot---but that "not amused" face definately made it in there. Anyways, I do have plenty of projects to keep me busy until May---Maya stuff, papers to write, I'm helping a few friends with their own films(more alpha channeling!), possibly more Annie drawings, and of course, job fair---for now though, time to actually write that animal behavior paper(bet you weren't expecting this activity after finishing my film)!

You're almost done too Cindey! Soon you'll get to celebrate! :) Until then, back to compositing and alpha channeling eh?

Brian: That would actually be really funny. Might have to take you up on that offer and put some epic trailer together. Might not be 90 seconds though.;) lol.
