A Turning Point

…and that it is, in every respect.

I shook off my being stuck because of the refurbishment, and went straight into the basement studio in the morning. Altogether I animated 630 frames for my animated short “Ins Dunkel” (“Into the Dark”) today, and 159 of those are so bad, that I’ll have to reshoot them tomorrow.


Some of them work pretty well, and today I also almost finished the turning point of my story. This is one of the last moments before the drama finally takes its course:

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

Orpheus and Eurydice want to leave the Underworld together. If you’re reading this via rss feed, download the video here: book animation and watch it with the free vlc player.

If I’ll have a good run tomorrow as well, I probably will finish the Underworld animation at all. That would be awesome since the paper puppets start to fall apart.

I still hear Bristol based model maker Mary Murphy in my head, “It’s not the question if your puppet is going to break, but when.”

I don’t really know why I’m so amazingly motivated right now. Is it the itfs deadline? Is it the now or never feeling that I sometimes have? I don’t know, but I really enjoy the progress. I hope you do as well!

Have an animating week!
