Wham Bam


My stuff is currently transferring to Jack's hard drive (20GB worth, mind you) and then I just have to export it as a MPEG2, which will take a few minutes, and burn a couple of copies, and then that's it!

10 months work all done and dusted.

You kids enjoy.

Im getting rid of the flag plant sequence. I hate it. To compensate I might do a nice shot of Herbert in the rocket crying after he lands, with the Earth reflected. Maybe even fade in the flag over the top. But no flag plant. Nope. Nope.

So close, and yet so far... Actually, not too far. Pretty close, really. Don't know why I brought it up...

So this thing is due in a matter of days.  In 92 hours.  That's less than 100.  Damn, I should have stayed in accounting.

I've finished every single shot of the thing, except the dreaded Flag Plant shot, which is still in the early stages.  Otherwise everything's finished the animating stage.  I have to record a couple of noises.  I have to re-do the newspaper spin in, but Daz-Dawg knows how to do that so I'll get his help tomorrow.  Then I need to put in the helmet, which could be a pain.

The sounds all finished bar the ones I wrote before.

Then it's just a matter of editing it, which won't take crazy long.

And then, as of Monday, I'll sleep for 3 months.  I hibernate like a bear.

A week left...

Watch this:  (Please note:  You don't have to watch this. It's just an irrelevant clip of the COMMUNITY characters singing a song about how happy they are)

That's how I'll feel when this assignment is all over!  Next Friday, in one week, this assignment is due and I shall, as the cast of Community said, finally be fine.

I've done my credits, they're wham-bam-thankyou-maam finished.  They're visible down the page.

I've done most of the after effects shots, with the help of Darren.  He's been great!  Not that all the teachers havn't been.

I'm having real trouble with the walking then flag plant shot.  I've tried it 3 times, and all 3 times I hate it.  Not "that'll do" hate it, "if that goes in I'm gonna hate it forever" hate it.  So I'm gonna talk to Jack and think of a different shot for the flag plant.

Otherwise I've just gotta do the head expand shot, the explosion and the knee-drop.  Then it's all animated!

Enjoy my credits.
