Friday, June 25, 2010


Almost finished with sound on the Lou the Frog cartoon, shooting a live action comedy short (with composited animation) next week, thumbing out a new really short short, hoping to get vocal records done for a longer animatic that I'm working on with cartoon all-star John Martinez that hopefully I'll get some help animating from the rest of the Toonhooligans, and gearing up to start penciling comics again. Gotta put pictures with this crap so here.

Sorry I haven't been posting more. I still love you.

Compositing Magic.

Trick #231231312:

When you got a close-up, if you gaussian blur your BG, it mimics a wide angle lens and gives you more depth! It's less about mimicing live action, and more about giving the audience a clear place to focus. It doesn't feel right to stare at the out of focus BG details, so it draws your audience eyes right where you want them to look: at your crappy animation.

oh i guess here's the before picture to compare.

Okay back to work.
