Compositing…big cat, little cat

We’ve been compositing the animation. Phew! so many layers and many more to go! nice to see it coming together. Plenty of resizing issues to overcome and fine tuning left to do.

Getting that mood indigo…

The video is a Zagreb animation Osvetnik (Dušan Vukotić, 1958). Filled with lilac scenes.

These Francis Bacon paintings are the tones I’m looking for in the bar scene. I want a brown/manila tone for the floor and bar with black lines. and purples for the characters and significant props in the background. Even the wine and food will be purple.

another Dušan Vukotić animation Koncert za mašinsku pušku (1958) this time in greys and browns. I love the style of this one and how the animation is synced with the music. Some brilliant visuals in there.

A couple more colour references. The Witches and The Milk Tray Man.

No sound effects yet. Played it to Steve, he suggested I clarify what happens in the bar, and simplify it a bit. He said it made him think of Midnight In Paris, the Woody Allen film, which I like because I imagined that inside the bar is all 1930/40s and outside on the street is a more modern London.
