Still tweakinG on...

Still tweaking on EVERYTHING haha... revised the script and animatic three times in the past two days... it came in late but my umm STRANGE sense of humor made its way into HSM after all... it was looking like it was pretty serious until now ^ ^

So besides that... I'm still doing the final checks/tests of the characters... found myself adding FK switches on all of them for they arms... wielding weapons to animate is much easier to do with FK than IK... So cactus dans plugs already have a switch BUT its on the arm joint nested in the Hierarchy since I'm all fancy now I wire my own controls via Xpresso onto the Characters main controller... so yeh doing that stuff... test animations... adjusting joint limits controlled by hand, foot and finger tags.... pretty much just like optimizing everything...

Still doing test renders of the sets... so far no major problems... some flickering textures from AA being set too low....

ALSO since thinking about all 2000 shots and 45 sequences at once is making me crazy... I decided to treat the production like the production on several short films... I broke production into 10 minute chunks... Some chunks contain as few as 2 sequences or as many as 6... I just grouped them into 10 minute pieces... So I'm planning on doing a 10 minute chunk a month... looking at it this way will allow me to regroup at the end of each cycle and further prepare/tweak the storyboard/shotlists/animatic for that chunk... So now I just have to think about the next 10 minutes... complete that than the next 10 and so on... Since I'm making the film in order it should work out well....

but DAMN I'm getting really ancy cause I just want to start making the fucking movie all ready... but as I know from the past when I was a fool... FOOLS RUSH IN... then they fuck shit up and spend 4 times as much time trying to do things right... on HSM I'm going to adequately prepare and do it right the first time and PLOW THROUGH PRODUCTION!!!! ^ ^

So far so good... its looking like all my patience and planning is paying off.... now just a few more weeks....
