The final week and it's compostiting time with what footage I have so far of my film. Most of my film is not coloured yet but I have some first years at the ready after their deadline is done which unfortunately does not give them time to complete any shots for my deadline but will be most helpful to ensure te film is complete for the grad show. I have had various helpers with colouring and cleaning up my frames, but Alex is my only long term helper as everyone else have had to work on their own projects, and only been able to work on one or two shots. Thus I have had to ask for help from different people each week.
So far I have had three 3rd years, two 2nd years and two 1st years helping me, along with my brother completing two shots for me over the summer. I only finished animating a week ago, so my schedule is later than expected but working at the studio from 9 til 9 I am working me best to get as much complete as possible with still maintaining a high standard of work.
I am currently working on a cintque computer which is perfect as I can composite and cut on layers on photoshop when needed. It's perfect. However one after effects film, the opening scene this week has been a problem, it has been terribly slow, and the helper to made the sequence failed to make the shot to a strandard I wanted, with the too many layers of clouds and slowing down the whole computer as a load of useless large files were clogging up the bin and therefore making editing impossible. It wasn't until I deleted this useless files that the composition began to respond. But another hour wasted.
