polished shots

okay, okay. so i haven't posted in a while. but i have been working! i've got three shots polished and ready to render out for my demo reel (i think...). here they are! i've slaved over these shots for the last 3 weeks. it's fun...but tedious!

dun dun dun DUUUUN!

here it is! the rough cut for the whole film! there's still lots of stuff that needs fixin' and tweekin'. shot 19 is still missing the fish, which are fixed now but i haven't put them in yet (thanks to jacob), and none of the critiques that i've received over the last 3 weeks have been implemented, because of time (gotta keep moving forward for now). plus, there are a lot of places where i need to smooth out the actions between cuts to keep consistency, and many shots aren't long enough to get to full feeling across. but that will all be done later. for now i need to focus on getting at least 3 shots polished up and put on my demo reel.

shot 22 blocking

i sorta rushed this one because i really want to get the blocking for all the shots out of the way so i can focus on the shots i'm going to polish. i only have a little more time before the portfolio show, which i need to graduate, so it is really a priority right now. this will work for now

shot 21 blocking

i'm doing something a little different from the animatic (i hiss). i wasn't happy with the way the camera was turning out for this shot. it looks different on paper than in 3d, so i'm just going to cut this shot short, and make shot 22 the close in of her shivering, because the original shot 22 in the animatic seems pointless to me. so same number of shots, slight time difference because of shortening 21.

shot 20 blocking

this one is a little bumpy, but it works for now. i just need to add some breakdowns and switch it to tangents to fix it.

shot 19 blocking

okay, this shot is looking really cool! however, i've got a hiccup with the stupid fish. i'm getting really strange, erratic rotations on the mesh whenever i rotate the controller past a certain point. i'll have to come back to this shot later.

shot 18 blocking

here's the actual blocking for shot 18. played with the camera slightly more, so slightly different than the previous post. feels pretty good to me! i'm excited about this shot, it's one of three that i get to take to polish, hooray!
