Hey hey hey...

Hey kids. Long time no speak, but 'The Flying Duchess' has officially started production; a pretty good reason for our lack of updates.

First deadline as such is our peer review monday, for which we're re-vamping the animatic. We've moved a couple of scenes around, extended a few, made a few a lot more difficult/challenging (yes I'm looking at you Kieran) and had a closer look at sound. Hopefully it's a marked improvement.

I've been working on starting the 2D animation. Here's a couple of veeeery rough tests for Scene One, where the Duke is admiring his own reflection in the diamond. It's already proved to be very challenging, with forshortening and facial animation... I've done a separate test just to figure out hand movements at the beginning. Nothing finalised, just thought I'd post an update on how we're getting on.
