When the hell did I get six followers?? That is definitely a recent development.
Anyway, I have six days to complete my final film, and it's going to be a mad rush but I am determined to finish this. I'm actually quite thankful most of the five minutes is just talking.
I decided to take a more serious version of the "Ren and Stimpy", "Spongebob Squarepants" approach, wherein an emphasis shot is in fact, a rendered painting rather than a flat-shaded cell.
Although I am still using gradients to shade the frame-by-frame/tween combo animation:
...whenever there is a static shot without lots of movement, I have taken the liberty of rendering the components in Photoshop for extra impact.
On the sound front, Kuba Komorowski has completed his part of the score, I have nearly completed mine, and David Williams has made excellent progress with the sound design. In my humble opinion, everything is sounding great.
