We've Finished Animating!
So in January we sat down and tried to calculate when we would finish animating, and we didn't think it would be possible to finish anytime before November 1st, and we're happy to announce that last night we hit our most ambitious deadline, capturing the 11,712th individual frame of the film, which was of course the very last one! It felt pretty awesome, and we thought we'd share the moment with our lovely backers in a short video.
We're now officially in the post production phase, which is still a considerable amount of work involving plenty of tedious frame by frame digital corrections, but the hard part is definitely over and we're excited to have the final version of T.P. ready for you all in early 2014.
More exciting news, congratulations are in order for Mr. Bradly Werley on his new job at Laika! A few weeks ago the studio behind Coraline and ParaNorman offered him a position in their art department, and he starts in exactly one month! The timing is pretty perfect, giving him enough time to wrap up with his final artistic contributions to T.P. before turning his full attentions to his awesome new job!
All in all this was a great October. We even squeezed in an official zombie run! Bob ran like hell and just barely survived. Werley kept stopping to take pictures and was killed almost immediately, but we both had a good time. Here's a picture!
Thanks as always for your continued support, and much love,
Bob Blevins and Bradly Werley, a.k.a WerleyBob Pictures
