Cotton Woolage

Here are a couple of clips of what I've been working on this week. Some decent progress, I reckons, despite wednesday being wiped out with stupid after effects problems. All sorted now though...

The shot's not finished yet, but it's nearly there - just need to sort out the colliding cotton wool movement and tweak the camera move a bit.

New Transition

Just been re-working the transition that I was unhappy with. I've decided to keep the whole film grounded in the hand drawn ink style, with various other medium working alongside it, as opposed to the distinct differences in style I had originally planned for each section.

I've just wasted a week working on stuff that looks shit. Oh well. I'm referring to the bit, in the clip below, with the string, before it transitions into the phone. It just looks too out of place and breaks the continuity, as well as making the whole sequence too long. I think the transition from hand drawn pigeon to scratched film works pretty well, but the string bit is too detailed, complicated and generally shit looking.

The annoying thing is that it's not even a particularly important bit of the film - I should be worrying about other stuff. I think I'll keep it hand drawn and similar to the previous transition now, which should take far less time to sort out.
