Posthaste March Wrap-up

Hello again blog followers and any new folks who may have wandered in. =)

Now that we’re a week into April I thought it would be a good time to post my summary of work from the month of March.

March was really split into 2 sections for me. The first half I spent building a small street set with some green screen behind it to shoot some animation of my mail truck which will be eventually composited into a 3D camera zoom shot.

Here is the final shot of the truck coming around the corner.

I also used the street set to take a POV shot of Randy’s hand to use as a transition into the 2D walkthrough sequence in scene 2 shot 3.
Here’s the connecting frame from the 2D sequence.

Here’s a new version of my work-in-progress laid over the animatic so you can see where I’m at in terms of overall progress.

The second part of the month I spent building most of the next set I plan to use to shooting scene 1 of my project. I still have a little more work to go to fill in props and to build and test my moving camera rig, but I’m hoping to be able to begin animating on the new set soon.

These segments are for the wainscoting along the walls.

Here is the beginning structure for building the walls of the set.

The elbow belongs to my friend Jack who helped me with some of the construction and who is designing my titles and credits for me. Thanks, Jack!!

I’m using k’nex to build modular scaffolding for each of my sets moving forward. It’s a lot faster and cheaper than building a wooden frame for each set.

Pieces for the desk that holds the letter and various notes from Randy’s mother reminding him to mail the letter.

A little more prop work is still left to be done, but hopefully I’ll have those done soon and I can get my next scene at least partially animated in time for my next post. See you all next month!
