Animation Infatuation

I really am enjoying the animation stage this time around. After a little over 1 month of animating, I have hit the 2 minute animated/rendered mark. At this point, the pace is going very fast. Im averaging about 30-45 seconds a week. Its looking like the film could be as long as 8-10 minutes depending on how the pacing goes. I really don't want people to get bored, so it may have to be cut down to 5-6 minutes. I want to make sure every scene advances the story. I love that I have the option to do this (no doubt thanks to the renderfarm option that i now have with
The look of the film is coming along great as well. Everything is being rendered at 1080HD. The detail is great. Ive figured out how to do the motion blur in post (something I had trouble with in my last film). Effects are getting there as well. The main two being ocean and clouds.
Thats about it for now. I'll be posting some new animations very soon.
