I just realized that this is the first animation piece I've done all year. Its a little funny cause I'm in an animation program.
3 seconds roughed in.
only 1 minute and 57 seconds left.
This is one of the more complicated panning shots in my film. I still have to clean up the line and colour it. I also had huge issues with moving the camera on After Effects. Hopefully I'll get it done in 4 months.

Some areas need to be tweaked but I thought I'd share what I got.
Man looks through telescope.
Cloud blocks telescope.
Man grabs vacum cleaner.
Man sucks cloud up.
Cloud gets stuck.
Man beats cloud with a stick.
Water from cloud creates a lake.
Stars from the sky reflect of the lake creating the feeling of space.
Any helpful critiques would be awesome. =)
I think enough time has past to finally post this on my blog.
I had so much fun making this film! I wish we had an extra year in college to do a second group film.
I was hesitant to post this earlier because we were planning to enter it into a bunch of film festivals. Some festivals don't accept submissions that have been posted on the web. In the end we only entered it into two film competitions.
Currently our film has made it into the finalist round for the Adobe Design Achievement Awards. Truthfully I don't really care if we win, I'm just so happy we made it this far.

So I recently just finished my co op placement at Pipeline Studios. It was a great experience and I definitely learned a lot about how this industry works. Now I have more time to relax and get my 4th year film up and running. I'm still not happy with the character design I posted a few weeks ago. I realized it took me too long to draw him in various poses. I decided to take a break from character design and work on a couple of layouts.
The telescope will be added later! I'm putting extra time on it to make it look really unique.
The title "Nuit Lumiere" was just kind of placed there without thought. Its french for night light which plays a role in my film. I just thought the french version of night light sounds really cool. Any word in another language sounds better.
We'll see what happens. I might just change everything again.

This could be it!!
I have spent the past 2 months coming up with a design for my 4th year project. This is the 4th iteration for Louie and it could be the last. I've been so frustrated lately with this project. The frustration would sometimes have me questioning this career path.
If this whole animation thing doesn't work out for me...I dunno what I'm going to do

Our group film is finished and awesome. I haven't posted anything for a while but thats because the film has taken most of my time. I haven't posted the film itself because there's still a few things that need fixing. I'm really happy with how it turned out and very excited to enter the film in a bunch of film festivals. I'm going to miss working with everyone that was involved with this project. I've learned so much about the process of making a film and I've gotten closer with many of my classmates. This year was truly a great year and I'm definitely going to miss working with such talented artist.
At the moment I'm preparing myself for my work term at Pipeline Studios. I also plan on getting my 4th year film boarded out over the summer. The sketch above is the character I plan on using for my short film. He looks like a Ghostbuster but he's actually just an old man who wants to vacuum up clouds.

The final product of a whole semester of brainstorming. So much has changed from the original concept. I can personally say I am very pleased and excited to see the final film. Its going to be a long 4 months from here.
I'm so grateful for having such an awesome group!
Btw Garra Rufa is latin for Doctor Fish
we still haven't really finalized the title of our film
