Yaaayyyyy!!!Actual animation! I might live long enough to see this film yet!And it looks goooood too - that's messin' around?!
I'm looking forward to showing this in Portland in 2013. :D
Lol my goal is to finish this thing before you look like your avatar pic!!You've set the 'bar' pretty high for drinking flicks in stopmo - not sure I can hold my own against one such as yourself. You'll probably drink me right under the animation table. I AM messing around, but getting close to actual production animation now. I won't be showing the 2 shots I did leading up to this one. But this one makes me very happy aside from the paleness of the lighting, which was supposed to be darker and more contrasty. I think I confused myself working on the delicate balance between f-stop and exposure time trying to find a field of depth I was happy with, and wasn't paying enough attention to actual lighting levels.
Sven - I look forward to that too!!
Hi Mike!!!! Great to see your post here:) It is looking wonderful. Puppets move very smooth. And I like the dept of field... Looking forward to seeing more here. Keep us posted.
Looking good! I like the stylized look of your puppets.
Yaz!! It's great to hear from you!! I certainly will keep you posted - I hope to start blogging about this on a regular or semi-regular basis again.
Blacknick, let me reiterate (as I do every so often) that the puppet heads were made by an amazingly talented sculptor/puppetsmith named Scott Radke. The film is also based on an idea he and I worked out. I've tried to make everything else in such a way as to provide a setting in which those heads can shine like gemstones. They're the real personality of the film. Here's Scott'sLivejournal: http://scottradke.livejournal.com/

Oh, my God! How could I have missed this?! Mike, this clip looks amazing!!!!!The film's quality and visual depth and artistry far surpasses my imagination! I have never seen any film look as beautiful. None. Ever. Anywhere.The perfect rack foci!, the stunning atmospheric lighting! the compositions. If I could I'd swear on here.In utter awe.
