Topic: The Third Arrival Production Log

This is the production log for my upcoming science fiction brickfilm, The Third Arrival.
It follows a salvager and an undertaker for the space agency who find an abandoned mining ship.  It all seems to be going well until more people arrive.

The script is now complete, and I am currently storyboarding and finding voice actors.  If you would like to audition, the casting call is here.

In the meantime, here are some behind-the-scenes pictures:

In the first picture, you can see some of the wires for the LED lights I have been experimenting with.  The walls of that set are built in a way that they can come apart easily so I can different camera angles.

That's all for now, but I will post more updates as I make progress.

The Third Arrival is out now!

Re: The Third Arrival Production Log

I have not been able to make much progress over the last couple of months due to my hectic personal life.  I finally got some animation done this week though, and should be able to devote more time to the video as this year draws to a close. 

However, I still need one more voice actor! If you are available, please check out the casting call.

Re: The Third Arrival Production Log

I was able to get a fair amount animated recently.
I focused on doing the exterior spaceship scenes and completed the majority of them.  It took a little while to figure out how best to animate the miniatures, but I figured out an workable method and I am pleased with the results.

Below you can see the setup and the finished frame.

Re: The Third Arrival Production Log

I finished the exterior miniature scenes this weekend, and was able to animate a couple of seconds of interior scenes shot.  In addition, I have gotten the last voice actor I needed so I start shooting the dialog scenes now.
Here is a behind the scenes picture:

Re: The Third Arrival Production Log

I have been able to get a whole lot of animation since I finished finding voices.  So far, I have about two and a half minuets done, so I think that the finished product should be around five minutes, without credits or titles.

Speaking of credits, I have been experimenting with hand-drawn titles, sort of like in the movie Dr. Strangelove.  I am still trying to decide if they look really cool or really bad.  You can see a test I did here.

I think I might release a quick trailer within a week or so, so keep your eyes open for that!

Lastly, I finally got around to updating my signature.  Now, when you click on the picture, it will take you right to this here production log! Isn't that neat?

Re: The Third Arrival Production Log

Looks great. I've been following the production log, but completely forgot I helped voice act for this. Look forward to seeing the finished product!
