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.
