So the "Is Your Fridge Running?" short should be finished by the end of the week - and depending on how the search for a music track goes, we could be done well before then. My hope is that it'll get done by either tomorrow or Thursday so we can post it online ahead of the Monday deadline.
Keep your eyes peeled for it!
So I've been working on the Fridge film for the past few weeks, and am at a point now where I just have one more of the shots assigned to me left to do. Maybe I'll take on other shots to help speed things along, but it's not clear at this point. We'll basically play it by ear to see how it goes. Here's one of the five shots I've done so far:
So yeh, awesome background by Xinyi Guo, fridge symbols by Lie Yandi Leonard, runner symbols by Lewis Rogers, animation by me. A truly collaborative shot right here.
On top of this, a doodle animation I did while working on this has been expanded and submitted to The Sketch Collab 2014 on Newgrounds, so that should be pretty great when it comes out.
As well as those, I've been brainstorming ideas for my major project this year. The main one that seems to be winning out is an idea about the grim reaper accidentally reaping someone he shouldn't, and having to go into the afterlife to bring them back to life. I've already started some warm-up doodle animations to work out how I want the film to look.
I want it to be straight ahead animated, but I know that with limited time and resources, that may not be entirely practical. I'd still love to give it a shot, make something that really feels fluid and alive. Ironic, considering it's about death.
