We've been busy here in the I Have Your Heart studios! Everything is powering along and it's a wonderful to see so much progress. We've completed animation on a lot of shots now, including some of the trickiest scenes in the film.
There's a new blog post up at www.ihaveyourheart.com with lots of photos of the production, introduction to our team of wonderful assistants, even some timelapse...
We've also been making new animation friends, with legendary animator Anthony Lucas, creator of the Oscar-nominated film Jasper Morello, coming to visit the set. He liked our work which was exciting, and gave us some invaluable tips from his wealth of experience.
Here's a photo of one of our careful crafted fancy puppets, waiting for her moment on the new dockyard set that we're currently constructing.
In the meantime, the other two members of the team Molly Crabapple and Kim Boekbinder, have once more combined forces to create amazing art - this time a beautiful matching song and illustration. People of discerning artistic taste, such as yourselves, can find it here: http://music.kimboekbinder.com/album/new-york-city
