Just like a bought one!

Saturday, 12 April 2008

In between making my 100 cupcakes on Friday I nipped into work to pick up one of the preview copies of the Pixel Pinkie DVD - doesn't it look cool! I was also really happy to see that the very first episode featured..well maybe not exactly featured but included a finger wiggle by one of the main characters that appeared for roughly a quarter of a second and took me an entire afternoon to animate one day. Think spirit fingers and you get the idea.  Of course technically speaking you can see my work all through the dvd as each and every shot of the 2800 shots was assembled by me - i.e. I selected and positioned the background and gathered together the props and sound and lipsync for the animators. This was fun, but certainly not rocket science or even particularly creative - so the few props that I have drawn, and the tiny little bits of animation that I did as part of the take 2's (shots rejected for some reason by the director and sent back to whoever was currently doing fix-ups to redo) are the highlights for me!  It's also fun seeing the finished version of the episodes as although I know the shots intimately, it's completely different seeing everything put together with music and special effects and all that stuff. 

In work related news, the fact that I'm on holidays is slowly starting to sink in and I can feel, whilst not exactly a weight, something being lifted from my shoulders the more I think about not having to go to work on Monday. Don't get me wrong, I love work - but it's been a busy year...
