Animation Situation

Journal Entry: Thu May 2, 2013, 10:57 AM

I've been rushing at breakneck speeds to finish my animation in time for the official submission deadline tomorrow ... or, today, by now actually. However, there are still little fixes I want to make to Santiago's introduction scenes, as well as some revisions to the "finished" sequences with Louis and James, so I'm holding back on uploading the clips to Youtube.

Until then, have some progress shots!

It's not like you had plenty of time to work on this or anything.

wow quite a lot of details on these characters. You can do it!

Honestly, I don't know if I should feel that sorry for you.
I say this because you have posted quite a few silly deviations with full color and detail as opposed to working on your animation. I know those take a lot of time. Time you could've spent working on your animation.
I have watched plenty of people on DeviantART and out whom, when confronted with a giant animation file, they spend all of their time working on it. With W.I.P shots as deviations to placate their eager fans.
I'm not saying this to be mean.
I'm saying this because it seems that something that should've been your top priority-especially when looking at your rough draft demo reel- is kind of second priority.
Or perhaps you need to hone your time management skills more.

I only need to submit 3 minutes for my official deadlines, which is what I have done. The total animation itself is now nearing 10 minutes, and it's final lining and coloring will definitely have to be done at a much later date.

Animation is fun and I do enjoy it, but if my course has taught me anything, it's that illustration and comic art is what I prefer doing in the end.

Your are making no sense.
So at the time you wrote the journal your animation was 10 minutes long?
Then why are you in such a rush to fix things up at deadline?
Wouldn't you have you have fixed everything at the 3 minute mark at that point? Especially since you say that's the minimum amount you have to submit?
Why would you continue your animation beyond 3 minutes before deadline if you knew there were things to be fixed before deadline?

The full length of my animation is 10 minutes, but if you think I can animate three main characters, lip-synch them to dialogue, and complete full-color background for 10 minutes in our alloted three months you're out of your mind. Of the 10 minutes I have just over three minutes completed in sketch-lines, but based on feedback from an animator at LucasArts who came in to take a look at our work, I have some changes I want to make before what I've completed thus far is on display at the LASALLE Show.

I'm not sure what you're asking. Either way this goes, I want to see this animation finished, even though semester is officially over.
