Well what is there to say about this week in a reasonable amount of time? I finished off all animation I needed to get done, in addition to a 500 frame shot that I had to do because it wasn’t going to get done any other way. After that I set everyone to assembling files while I submitted them to the farm. All in all I submitted about 60% of the animation to the farm in a day, with the help of other people assembling them. It was a huge load off Avery’s plate, so now his job is going back and redoing the shots that people assembled wrong or put in the wrong frame range for. LAter in the week I was supposed to implement all the sound effects that have been assigned to be collected and then recorded over the last week or so. As it turned out, I spent most of monday looking for the sound effects since only 5-6 were actually found, and none were recorded. Unfortunatley that meant that the time I was supposed to spend locking in the effects in a ProTools session for our deadline Wednesday looking for the effects that were consistently. “overlooked” and “reprioritized.”
On the bright side we we have about 96% of the animation rendered, and it just needs to be comp’d.
