Mother's Running scene-Playblast Tests

I am responsible of working on the editing in the forest scene which is the one we put less thought into, even though it's one of the most important scenes. All the camera angles last for about 20 seconds but I need to limit them and choose the best one out of them.

Tasks to be completed by the responsible team member and associated deadlines. By Aidan Codd

Tasks to be completed by the responsible team member and associated deadlines.


I have looked at the new amendment to the scene that you have posted.

Although visually this works, this change is too dramatic and with the remaining time left to complete this animation we cannot includes this style.

On Friday we agreed collectively our tasks to complete over this weekend 14/15-1-12, can you confirm that you are still on schedule to complete:

1.       The matt painting that curves the river.

2.       The animation of the woman running in the swamp in the night scene.


 Can you confirm that the expressions for both the characters will be rigged and finished by Monday morning?


The scene I agreed to render and have finished will be completed by Monday, I have also created a poster which I have added to the blog. I have done this as we need to use the remaining time to focus solely on completing the animation and presentation.

Grass and Water test

@Group : "Art Of " Document

Hey guys,
Just to let you know my next task will be to Put the "Art of" together if that's ok with you. I am going to keep the design really simple with a plain black background and the icon of our studio on the side just like on the Pitch Presentation and do all the writing myself. I am going to try and make an interesting business card design, too. What do you think?
