Mood music

We’re working on the backgrounds today. This one is anywhere near what it will look like but trying some lights and shadows in the bar. Obviously contrast between the inside and outside is important, so the bar needs to be muted but can’t be as dark as this. That’s also why we wont be using the following image, although its nice to include on the blog

post pitch

There were so many great proposed ideas and everyone had put a lot of passion into their pitch. I was really impressed and it would be great to see all of the projects turned into films at some point.

I’m really excited to be working with Lynn, Steph & David. We had a talk through the story on Friday afternoon, and discussed the next phases there are still some parts I need to clarify to the group so that’s what I’m working on this weekend. I think it’s going to be a really interesting experience. I’ve been getting advice from a friend who does all her animation in photoshop. Making use of all the brushes on offer would really work with the look I’m trying to achieve! But first on with the necessary alterations to the storyboard.

Thank you to everyone who voted for ‘Parties’. I really appreciate being given this opportunity by you.

The tones in Violets.

Here are the characters in their Lavender hues for the scene in Violet’s bar. (Violet is the barmaid in the purple pearls)

I’ve changed the look of the two girls a little bit since the animatic, and the blonde actress will have a wide brimmed hat.
