Life Drawing - Confest 2014

 
So I just came back from Confest. It's a 5 days Festival 6 hrs from Melbourne in New South Wales. It was an amazing experience, really mind blowing and a good break. There was so much love. people were sitting and talking about everything, accepting each other, hugs, workshops, singing and dancing until no one had any energies anymore but still no one left cause no one wanted it to end... Wow..in terms of human experiences, I don't think I ever felt so happy in my entire life..Boost of happiness. first time for me and hopefully from now on a must every year.
Up on top are a few sketches out of a bunch of Life Drawing i did over there.

Update



It's been a very long time since i updated anything.. this blog was pretty much dead since my film was done, so from now on i will start posting and updating more to keep it alive for the sake of my progress. All in all, it was a crazy time working, traveling and polishing a lot of my previous work. I started studying online (the name is "Studio Technique" and it's based in Montreal) mentored by the amazing Samantha Youssef. So far it was intense but a huge learning curve for me. So will post some pencil tests soon.   on top are some old designs just so i can post something in the meanwhile..

First Music & Sound bits

Hi, been working on finishing some details for the backgrounds and been animating some inbetweens and secondery actions.
I'm in the final 2 shots, so finishing before weekend and then basically ready to scan it all and start to put it all together.

From the minute I finish scanning and organize it all , I really should be able to finish the project in a week or 2, cause AE running comp already exists (the only problem is the timing that i already did and now i have to re do again because now these are the final drawing and also some of the shots have more frames UNLESS jack, you told me u know a way to use what i've got as a reference and i think it's possible).

Anyway, here's what Nick (my sound guy did):

He worked on 2 parts: the airport section and the beginning.
I really like the beginning, cause it's a playful scene and it's not suppose to be dramaic. It's fun and matching the images which is great!

The Airport section is wonderful, cause i love Jazz music and it suit it perfectly.
I just can't believe how much sound and music contribute...
Anyway, i told him i love it. If any of u see this, feel free to give me feedback!

See u next week !!

New Title and Backgrounds done!

Hi, quick update...

Finished Backgrounds. Now i'm tracing the lines with a darker pencil, adding some details.
Will finish it over the weekend.

Next week, i'm going back to the animation and filling some inbetweens and secondary actions (more frames in some shots).

After that everything will basically be ready for composition in AE.

The drawings and backgrounds will be imported into photoshop to match aspect ratio.
The drawings will have to be lined up (peg).

From there i bring it into the AE file and start placing the process.

And Jack - i'm going with your title, so thanks for thinking about it.

Don't have anything to add....

Hi there, to anyone out there (probably no one :) - don't have much to update..
I've been working on my backgrounds for the past 2 weeks.
LAST background to go and i'm ready to go over them with pencils and fill them with grey tones.

I'm working on the interior house and the outside when Minnie starts running.....i haven't decided if it's a neighborhood or a lonely house on a hill...like a country side or just a quiet area??

Scanning some of the rough planning sketches tomorrow!

Other then that - have a new sound guy (very nice and talented person, his name is Nico and he got the files from me. Will start running some experiments soon)

That's it i think.... upload some stuff to show tomorrow!!
