Close Shave - 606

Here's my work in progress, submitted 5-9-10. My mentor had some awesome notes - so I added an insert shot to show the razor saying "never nicks" - which I think really helps. :)

Now I'll be reblocking a couple more shots - but for the first section, I should be moving in to splined :) Woo hoo! :)

Close Shave - week 604

Here's my week 4 posting. The part of the short that's desaturated is the part I didn't work on this week.

I'm finally getting caught up from being out of town...this Sunday I should be back on track and all good to go. *phew*

That's all for now. :)

Close Shave - First Stage Blocking

Originally uploaded by Teri Shellen
Well, here's the first pass of the whole short. Even with cutting out a shot, it grew...haha.

Feeling meh about shot 90 - still struggling to get my idea across in that shot. Not sure if it's that I'm trying to tell too much in too little time, or if I should just simplify it?

Now on to addressing notes from my mentor! :D

2nd stage, blocking plus, here we come! :D

602 - Blocking 2/3

Originally uploaded by Teri Shellen
So here's my most recent pass of blocking for my short. The scenes in color are the ones that I worked on this week (my mentor wanted the hook up shots - so they're in gray)

2/3 done - 1 more week and then all the blocking is complete. :D

Haha - looking for vampire music, and this one popped up. It's just too good to not post. :)

Term 6 - Week 1 - Mentor: Kevin Koch

Originally uploaded by Teri Shellen
Wow - ok, been forever. :)

So I'm finally finishing my last term at AM (yeah, I'm on the two year program.) :)

Here's my week 1 progress. Basically - I have the story flushed out, now I'm just working on my short with blocking.

Layout is done on all shots (but I'm sure things will be tweaked along the way). Blocking was done for shots 10 and 20 - but I'll be changing quite a bit next pass (my mentor gave some really good comments).

But anyways - here goes. :)

Term 4 - Progress Reel

Ok - so here we go - here's my final reel for term 4.

I wish I was part of the polish class - because this work needs some major love. haha Especially the first shot of my 2 person dialogue. Oh well, maybe I can go back and polish it up on my own, when I'm done with school.

Enjoy. :)

Here's where I'm at

So here's what I submitted for homework last week. I'm working all day today and Sunday morning to try to make this better. It's been a difficult few weeks with being out of town, work, life, etc. - so AM has fallen a bit to the wayside - but hopefully the next 3 weeks I can kick it into gear and get this piece working :)

The stars are aligned....woot woot

So I've been battling catching up since going to SIGGRAPH and then vacation at DOC's parents' house (let's just say they're still on dial-up - nooo homework getting done there). But I'm feeling strong today - and then I saw my horoscope - woot woot:

Capricorn (12/22-1/19)
You're unstoppable right now. To-do lists disappear in the blink of an eye. Mountains get moved with the simple touch of a finger. The stars have taken your natural industriousness and multiplied it, so if there's been anything exceptionally big on your agenda that you've put off tackling, now is definitely the time to address it. You have so much energy that needs to be put to use!
