I also have a new blog now which will be my main port of call so for updates on life the universe and everything related to me then feel free to drop by! The blog is: If The video doesn't play properly or you want to check out my other work then I have a Vimeo page. - Cheers L.

It feels slightly weird publishing without any pictures to show you. I just wanted to let everyone know that by tomorrow night the film will be complete! three weeks after the initial hand in but all the extra hard work has been worth it. I'm not going to put the film anywhere until after the degree show but you will see it. Thanks for the views and following the films development with me. Lets hope it leads to bigger and better things. Thankyou

This is the Final Poster that you will all see at the Degree show, knocked this little baby up in 13hrs. Pulled the hardest all nighter to do it aswell and I'm happy with how its turned out. I'm very glad I can use photoshop!

Hey Guys and Gals, Extremely busy Compositing at the minute, its looking great and coming together nicely! Just though I'd show you the updated Title sequence. Wanted to go for my own style I tried doing it in medieval english but it didn't fit the film.

Scene3_shot17 from luke smith on Vimeo.

Right, all the animation is finished and its just rendering and compositing thats left. I've had several people tell me this week that this shot wasn't working and I agree so I've redone it. I've learnt an important lesson here. quite simply the anamatic should be referred to as a guide not gospel. I gave two seconds for the anamatic and it works on paper, but not in 3d. Can't wait to see this in composition.

Hey guys, just added some camera movements to this shot. I was nervous adding the movements, but I agree with some of my classmates that its adding an extra dimension to the animation. Also remember I've added longer pauses where I'll be cutting the shots up.

Spoke with Rudy today and we agreed that the original shot was too fast. This is a slower version but still connects with the next shot easily.
