UPDATES #1

Thursday, 15 June 2017
A few updates all around. Below is the new look of the very first shot as well as its progress in terms of animation.






Final lighting set-up for the scenes from Act 1 (some shadows are not always flattering but it works overall). Still debating whether to leave the renders in a more natural state or going for a general colour grading.  





Another example of difference in colour grading but this time in an animated scene.


Norma sings(!)



One of the simpler shots that will be used during the bridge in place of the 'planets' scene.

SCENE 1 + 2 COMPOSITING TESTS

Wednesday, 7 June 2017
Another test done earlier this week for the very first scene, from which I take on two things to tweak:
1) Make the small planets disappear less obviously
2) Adjust and tone down the lighting in accordance to the shots that follow



Colour grading breakdown for Scene 2 Shot 1 (overall lighting has to be improved)




Scene 2 Shot 2 (lighting has to be improved)


Scene 2 Shot 3 Lighting tests
Trying to get a balance between shadows and light to convey the loneliness theme of the first act

BEGINNING PLAYBLASTS

Friday, 2 June 2017
There are corrections to make already, but those are animated shots that make up the beginning of the film.


We've also been testing different versions of Scene 2 Shot 7 (which has an extended, moving matte painting), experimenting with different start time, speed and number of spin. The tests were carried out with with a keyed out playblast.
