Greetings again! The deadline for the grant application is fast approaching, as is the proof of concept animation's completion.
Now all I have left to do is add in the shadow models, and composite the final shot. Below you will see it in the color phase, the background graciously provided by the amazing Chris Beaver, a coworker of mine. I am working fast on tightening my budget, the money I am asking for, as well as the time and money already provided. If I can get this grant, then the Orchestra is a go!
Alas there is some sad news as well as good. As some of you know, but presumably not all, my father Brian Stannard a large source of inspiration for this film, recently passed away. 3 years ago he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, to which the doctors gave him a year to survive at best. being the strong willed person he was he made it 3 times as long. His passing has been hard for myself and my family, but his determination, his love, and his optimism still lives on and will help fuel this production to the finish come hell or high water.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and enjoy the colored shot. A new shadowed and composed shot will be released very soon.
