Timelines, Extensions?

We may be looking at going for an extension as we're currently running a bit behind schedule. This is due mainly to me not getting as much work done over the holidays as I had scheduled. Anyways we'll see how it goes, there's a current and proposed version of the timeline.


Here are the storyboards for Cicada in all their entirety, they are subject to change as these are the first batch. I'm lucky enough to have a meeting with a professional storyboard artist tomorrow to get her feedback so we'll see how that goes.

I've formatted and annotated them in a zip file for easier viewing. Otherwise you can see them below in their raw unedited form!

Voice Recording - Gully & Zen

Yesterday we did our first recordings for the animation. Everything went reasonably smoothly and we managed to get all the lines recorded. It was definitely a new experience working with kids and trying to communicate at their level. I've included a pic below with Gully (Josh), Zen (Aden) and the family.

Updated Timeline

Well I've fallen a bit behind from what I had planned earlier in the year due to a little trip overseas so I've had to adjust the timeline. Things have been pushed back meaning that there will be more crunch at 'crunch time'.

The good news is that I haven't taken any time away from the animated, it still sits at 8 weeks. The bad news is that I'll be animating almost all the way to the deadline, giving me less time for compositing and editing.

House Model

The 3D model for the house without textures applied.

The Family!

Current 3D models for Aden, Josh and the Mum. Still with basic shaders applied.

Myna Birds and Cicadas

The 3D models of the myna birds and cicadas. Note that at the moment they just have default shaders on at the moment.

I've also included a myna bird head sketch to show you how something is modeled in 3D and the sort of planning one might do before starting.
