Update #16

T.P. Official Trailer!


Hey Everyone! 

Our official trailer for T.P. is ready, uploaded, and desperate for affection. So follow the link, watch it, love it, and share it with anyone and everyone!

So we know it's been a while since we posted an update, but we've been trying to keep our heads down and churn out a lot of work so that's exactly what we've done. We're happy to say that we've completed far more footage since resuming production in Portland than during our entire residence in San Francisco. Our story reel, which was originally nothing but a series of scanned storyboards timed to the voice acting and imagined pacing of the film, has slowly but surely become consumed by completed animation. It's very surreal to see all these shots we imagined years ago come to life, but also uniquely rewarding. We've been gradually piecing this film together one frame at a time, and based on our output since the beginning of the year we have set a wrap date for all shooting on December 20th, 2013. We're confident we can meet that deadline barring any unforeseen disasters, and it will be one hell of a Christmas present to hear the shutter click open and closed when we capture that last frame. When we get to post production we will once again be navigating through uncharted waters in a lot of ways, but the hard part will definitely be over. So hopefully there won't be a massive earthquake, none of our expensive equipment will break, and the next update we post will be in December to announce the end of production.

Until then enjoy the trailer, and remember that WerleyBob Pictures loves you very much.

    We add five sequential story boards instead of one, and we throw the character profiles into the pre-production package. The character profiles contain the basic life story of each character, and combined are almost equal in length to the script of the film. They're fun.
