Started on this year’s Halloween show. Macross Frontier episode 1. More script thumbnails.
THE SIMPSONS NEWS
This week I’m working on the Halloween episode for this year. I’m a week late since I should have started it last week. I managed to turn in my Couch Gag Friday morning of last week. I didn’t think it would take that long.
The assignment I was given is pretty involved. So far it’s taken me two day to rough out my first section. I hope it won’t take as long when I do the second part of my assignment. I hope we get, at least, the two weeks this episode needs us for.
In March 2010, I wrote about a show I really enjoy. Namely, MACROSS FRONTIER. I’ve been watching it again. Mostly as I board my film. It helps me to have something I’ve already seen playing in the background as I board. That way, if I get tired, I can look up and see something interesting, and perhaps, find inspiration for shots or something. Since it’s not available for purchase in the U.S. I’ve been watching it online through a fan subtitled version. I’d thought I’d share it, since I enjoy the show so much.
Here’s episode 1. Enjoy:
I managed to finish two pages of thumbnails this week. I hope I can do that more often. I’ll be done sooner that way. So far, I’ve had a lot of talking head shots. It’s been getting more and more difficult to come up with interesting shots. I’m not opposed to reusing shots (which I have done) but I still needed to come up with new shots, just to add visual interest:
There’s a tad bit more talking heads, on the next page, but by the end of the page, the action part will begin. I think that’s when the thumbnailing will start REALLY getting difficult.
