The production of Viv & Mandy in the big clean up part 2 is coming along nicely. The First scene that IV animated are the in fact reshoots and extensions of the scenes that I worked on when I had finished part 1 and over my time at university on the hallway set. These were only 3 shots and did have some technical problems in them regarding the lighting and staging.
Original shot reshot
Once the reshoots were completed I carried on with the rest of the sequence, this scene will be in the middle of the film and shows a conversation between Mandy and Catherine. This is the first scene that I have completed in the film and last exactly 1minuet.
Part 2 is going to look very different to part 1 animation wise, this is as because the FPS (frames per second) have changed, from been shot on ones at 12 FPS to being shot on ones and 25 FPS. This allows me to get allot more smooth and smaller movement in to the body language and lip sync of the characters. I’m still getting used to working on 25 FPS as when I first shot on them the puppets looked so different to how they did in part 1. I kept on shooting more and more this way and I’m very happy with the way the animation is looking fare.
That’s all for now guys, keep coming back for more news as I carry on with Part 2!!
