Production estimates

So since I have a few extra days in the month because I finished storyboarding early I did some prelim production estimates... Its good to constantly do these so you know how much time everything is going to take... and so your not surprised if it takes a year longer than you had planned ^ ^

Assuming the film is 98 minutes long and contains 1,800 shots

----------
To complete in 12 months
8.12 minutes of animation per month | 150 shots per month
2.03 minutes of animation per week | 38 shots per week
17 seconds of animation per day | 5.5 shots per day
-------------
To complete in 18 months
5.5 minutes of animation per month | 100 shots per month
1.4 minutes of animation per week | 25 shots per week
12 seconds of animation per day | 3.56 shots per day
-------------
To complete in 24 months
4.09 minutes of animation per month | 75 shots per month
1.03 minutes of animation per week | 19 shots per week
8.9 seconds of animation per day | 2.8 shots per day
--------------------

So I always expect the best but plan for the worst...
I will push to hit my quotas for a 12 month completion but if I cannot hit those on a daily basis I must at least hit the quota for a 24 month completion...
Certainly the time requirements are more intimidating than the shot requirements...
Render time will not be a limiting factor...
In December 2007 I completed 15 minutes of animation for the end of WATS...it was mostly all 3d which allowed me to work fast... HSM is almost all 3d...

So I will either be done in Jan 2010 or Jan 2011.

  1. 9 seconds of animation per day is a *lot*. But 15 minutes in December is *insane*, and that turned out to be some of the best work in the movie. I would have guessed it was impossible, but you've already done it. :)

  2. Wow, that makes me a bit of a slacker, I've always figured 4 sec of shots per day a good rate...
