Need to deal with some environment details. Fences, hills, trees, shrubs... those sorts of things. Where a place is has so much to do with how a story is received. It tells a lot about the characters and expresses a great deal of the spirit of a story.

Wow time can sail when your busy not being busy. Lots of new work on the film but not a lot of posting. Gotta resolve that. Might move all this chit chat over to FB...has to be a better way to have less stuff to maintain.

Some of the latest work has been focused on building objects to fill in my sets. One set has "wrapped" the family trailer. I don't want to return to it and add more clutter even thought I think it needs it.

yup a desk w/ no legs and a type writter with no keys...I'm not sure they'll end up in a shot but I'll go back to them if I have to.

I'm currently working on the gas station set. Like where it's going but have a lot more to do there also.

Sort of dreading the shading and texturing phase. Files start getting so bulky once you start adding texture maps and image files!

Having a production schedule is great. Keeps the focus. Not having a holiday schedule, big mistake. I've fallen so far of schedule that its hard to know where to jump back in. November bled into December. December blurred into february. It'll be March before I know it and the project has taken a crap turn. So what next. Well rigging has begun and weight painting will allow me to put some articulated characters in front of some cameras. I still have a truck load of models to build and shade and then there is the lighting rendering. Uhg it seems so daunting.

the Key is one thing at a time. Keep a focused mind and let mistakes happen. They're bound to occur and there's no reason to let them sabotage the whole process.
