LAURI ACHTE

I’ve been collaborating with Lauri Achte for the music and sound design for Give Trip A Break. He just sent me the final version and it is awesome! I’m so impressed with what he’s done and how much it adds to the film. We talked about working together on the next part because it makes such a difference to give sound to the film. He’s doing all sorts of other interesting projects and the music in the film is brilliant. Can’t wait to show everyone!

A tiny bit more stop-motion

I’ve been working on the drawn part of my film for the last couple of weeks without much time in the stop-motion studio. Got in there today to do some parts that I really wanted to add at the beginning. Think I got a really nice image to put on my business card.shadow

 

Coraline B-roll

The more behind the scenes stuff you see from Laika the more your mind is blown! It’s unreal what these guys can do. I can’t wait to see Box Trolls, their next film. Unfortunately I can’t embed the video, but follow the link below it’s incredible!

Recent News…

I’ve been in the studio shooting stop-motion as much as possible in the run up to the rough-cut deadline. I’ve shot all the stop-motion parts and it’s time to devote all my time to the 2D part. After that I will do some more stop-motion, because there are some things I still wanted to try for the beginning/titles and for fun, but so far I’ve got what I need. I managed to reshoot the tattoo scene and the opening scene and I think they work a lot better and I enjoyed using the lighting and reflectors I borrowed from the loans store the “kino flow diva light” 🙂

Check out these new production stills:

Getting Trip into position last Friday. We had a good week of shooting, was nice to be reiminded how much I love stop-motion, it can be so much fun when you get into the flow of it. Hopefully will be able to iron out some of the problems I encountered this week. Looking forward to getting back in my black box tomorrow morning!
