Rough Cut

Alright matt, lol.. here is what I have so far.. hopefully I will be able to get everything done and still have time to edit the timing and audio- as both are in dire need of attention, but alas the visuals  must be completed before I worry about that-

This blog has been kind of a fail in that I have been concentrating more on trying to make the film than to upload stuff haha, but here is a pic of stanley

Title Change

      As the film is now less about a retired man trying to landscape his yard and more about a retired man who loves birds and is only attempting to cut the grass to assist the birds... I will probably change the name to something like  "The Bird Lover"  although it doesnt have a very nice ring to it, it is clearer and might get peope in the right mindset as the film begins.

Edit: It sounds so horrible that I must include other options-

a) Bird Haven  b)Cutting Edge c)Stanley's New Toy

And thoughts or ideas are welcome!

Stanley Sculpt

Today I decided to do a sculpt of stanley's bust- Even if the design changes somewhat it is handy for some of those crazy angles to see just how much of the eyes you can see in a low angle, etc

It was really fun to make, quite relaxing

Character Design - Thus Far

     These are very early explorations of the main character "Stanley" I really want something structural, especially when it comes to the face. Currently however my plan is to animate and clean up a certain amount using Digicel Flipbook, therefore the design must be simple- keeping the restrictions of cleaning up in that way in mind. The picture of Stanley on the riding mower is an example of how it could look using that program, I like how it is looking but there is still some stuff to work out. I guess when it comes down to it, the animation test will tell me what will work and what will cause me to go into early retirement.
