It always happens.
So that four day window thing didn’t work out so well. I’d say I managed to get about half the film done in that time. I’m now trying to find the odd hour here and there to get it finished for the end of May.
The main problem is that it’s a football film, and football involves running. I’m having to animate a lot of running. Aside from issues with the run cycle itself, when a character runs, he covers more ground in less time, so the camera has to move and the set has to be bigger. So everything takes that little bit longer to do.
On the plus side, I think that what I have so far looks pretty good. It’s just taking forever to film.
