Animation is Complete!

So, this thing happened today - I rendered out a (VERY near) final version of the film! Every scene is animated and I don't hate it! I... actually like it and think its saying what I was hoping it would say. I can't even express how good that feels!

OK, what now?

The vast majority of the work is done, but I still need to do the sound design and work out the music. I'll journal more about that as I figure it out.

I will probably shave some frames off here and there in Premiere to really tighten it up and do some color correction and minor tweaks to a couple scenes while I work on the audio. Also- backer treats!

Sorry I can't really show new stills really - Ive run out of spoiler-free material I think! I'll try to think of something to post soon.

I doubt this little film and its quiet, insanely drawn out production is top of mind (or even lower-middle of mind) for many of you reading this, but all the same your early support nudged me along and has been on my mind throughout!

      I rested my head under a tree, when I woke I had a long, flowing beard, there were flying cars and the animation on Lake Beast was complete. This is good news my friend.
