Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

I'm animating the final scene now, back in the Schneider living room.  I've grown comfortable working in this room, and animated a stair decent in minutes!  Within a few days, this scene will be finished, and I'll only have the municipal building and a bit of mall to shoot.  I found the Female Municipal Clerk figure hiding in a camera brace.  So I'll be able to finish most of the animation, except for one quick scene with the Mayor of Antwerp Township.  It's all in post from there.

I am sick, but I got to animate on the weekend, which is rare.

Animation is 90% complete.

Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

Most of the remaining voice actors are being filled.  I have a mayor now, and tentatively two of the three remaining friends of Melissa that don't have actors.

Plus, there's a collectible shop clerk, and I'm trying to get a special surprise person to portray the voice.  But I don't want to say anything in case it falls through.

Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

Got a bit of animation in here & there last week.  Looking at the script, I seem to have less than 90 seconds remaining to animate!  It's so close!

i also found a voice actress to play the new semi-regular character, Missy's friend Grisjahilde.  I really like her voice audition.

Well, see you again here.

Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

Animation is now 97% complete.  Tomorrow I expect to get that number to 98%.

Here are a few images of a set for one of the final scenes:

s this goes into post-production, animation will begin for episode 5 and both projects will be concurrent: episode 4 will be worked on at night and episode 5 during the day.  Hopefully, this thread will soon come to a close as the episode nears completion, and episode 5 production will commence.

Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

I sure hope so.  I animated today and built an exterior set.  Check out my tumblr page for some pics, and more to come today (Wednesday), God-willing.

Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

iting & post-production is now 15% complete.  The process will slow down as I continue because I was never able to recapture the camera settings that gave me geaat shots, like when I first started, and I had to deal with serious family issues.  Collected a few news clips for the background and am assembling new laughs for the laugh track.

Every fall something goes wrong, then another and another, until it's winter. But hopefully all have passed, and Friday, post-production resumes again!

Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

Post-Production is at a more steady pace with fewer interruptions, finally.  I wind up editing a few minutes of audio at a time and then syncing up video until I run out of audio, then go back to that.  Meanwhile, I'm pleased to say that some of my scripts are being directed by other animators.  LegoStudiosP is in the midst of "The Nine Billion Names of God", adapted from the Arthur C Clarke short story.  This is part of the sci-fi series of which TogFox's "Mariana" is a part.  Meanwhile, Brick Block Productions is preparing to animate what will be the second Tinnitis song to get rendered as Lego.  William Osborne's "My Dog" is the first.  Funmi Productions has been greenlighted to animate "Warm" by Robert Sheckley, another in the sci-fi series.  And Sir Snorlax is given the greenlight for "Barry's Show", a lucid comedy written for one of the BiM Screenplay challenges.  So while you're waiting for HOO 4, some of these may be released to appease you in the meantime!

Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

I'm considering a new approach for creating Holding Our Own.  The series is intended to be at least 12 episodes in length, with a special 12th episode.  While in post-production, I'd like to take time to write the remaining scripts (7, 8, and 10 through 12).  During the animation for episode 5, I'll ask the regular and semi-regular characters to record all their lines to every episode, so then I'll have all the audio for the full 12 episodes.  While in post-production for the next episode, I'll process all the audio from the remaining episodes and have them ready.  But that's just a plan.  My main focus is finishing episode 4, then enacting the plan.

Re: Holding Our Own: Episode 4 Production Log

Totally awesome!  I have a lot of outline ideas for the big special episode 12.  It's really exciting for me, and it will be much longer than a regular episode!  A lot will be happening in the episode, so I have no idea how long it will actually be.  I only know that 25 minutes won't suffice.  Meanwhile, episode 4 is nearing 50% completion in post-production.
