Transcription: Environment Props

Posted by Sam Hayes On Friday, February 25, 2011
Since the tutorial with Phil this week I've been thinking a lot more about the way I want my character to move and the variation he needs to stay interesting throughout the story. I've been slowly going through the shots and figuring out his shapes and movements. This is something that is going to take a lot of refinement but will hopefully be completed the week after next, in order to meet my timetable. I've also been trying to get as much production done as possible, so that when I have completed these animation guides, I can focus on bringing the character to life.

I'm still aiming to have my environments and props all compiled and ready before the end of the next week (9 days time) This includes the train, which I'm hopefully going to focus on this weekend, with the help of a Gnomon texturing DVD that Alan thankfully lent me for improving it's texture. I'll be using the post to update on the environment stuff. Below are some props, which I've tried to keep a theme through of desaturation. These won't be focused on much, but they need to be there. I've got a few more to do, two of which are quite important : The hand-car and the luggage trolley.

Blocking out the station set:

    What I like is the strong sense that all these objects belong to your world, Sam - and there's a gentleness to your world that I like very much. I'm desperate to see the animation-centred animatic though - and you're absolutely right - you've got to work so hard to ensure that your animated rectangle doesn't run out of interest. What I like about this project, in that sense, is its 'nudity' - it really will be a question of 'Is Sam an animator?' Let's wait and see - but I'm thinking 'yes'!
