It’s that time of year again. Cmon Cards.
Lots of work to do.
I’m getting ready to travel to Dawsonsville, Georgia for Memorial weekend to catch up with an old friend and thought I would post a quick update about the film before i take off. The characters are about halfway there. I have somewhat changed my workflow on how I am modeling each character so it has slowed the process a bit but I promise, they will look better because of it. Since this is my first go around at directing a film, establishing a workflow was crucial to me from day one. It’s unfortunate that it has taken this long but that’s part of it. All of the world structures such as cars, trees, trailers, roads, etc… also have to be refined to further detail. That’s basically it, heavy loads of sculpting and rigging before I start blocking out any animation.
It’s hard to believe a year has gone by since this devastating day in Alabama. I remember leaving work that afternoon and heading straight to my girlfriends house to watch the alarming coverage. We had no clue what we were about to witness. Ill always remember the shock and eery disbelief in James Spann’s voice/face (video below) as the rain soaked F5 tornado transformed into what appeared to look like the devil in less than ten minutes. This day was crazy and has forever changed my respect for mother nature.
