My first published interview.

I was contacted by a friend that writes for Animation Career review and they posted this great interview with me.
Take a gander at it. It sorta sounds like I know something about the animation industry. Enjoy.


One thing I've already learned from this process is that a lot of people are genuinely
interested in the the process and then making of. Which is great. I know I always love the behind
the scenes stuff in movies.
Here's one step further.
Here is the entire short (minus titles and credits) in rough animation form.

This is the step where I don't worry about a perfectly clean line. I'm just drawing
roughly to try and get the motion and timing down for the animation.
I then take this and clean it up later after I'm happy with the animation.
When you're looking at 2D movies like Aladdin or Lion King. And you here the name of an "ANIMATOR"
this is what they are doing.
There are a bunch of other steps to go past the animator till it gets to the big screen.

Finally starting to add some colour.

After coming to a complete hault on this project due to clean up. I finally was able to start colouring my Harry Potter spoof in. By the way it's officially titled. HARRY POTTER: SAY THE MAGIC WORD. Doing clean up was really tedious but it's finally done. I wasn't going for a perfectly clean line or anything. Just trying to draw lines to fill in. I'm trying to get this short out by the time the last Harry Potter movie comes out which is this weekend so I'm in full panic.speed mode right now. Wish me luck. There's no effects in this test yet. I just wanted to post an update. Enjoy.
