Shhhh! Mamma's sleeping!

The Good News: Here's another clip from the film with contributions from all the animators (sans backgrounds unfortunately!)!

The Bad News: If you're not from Denmark, you propably wont understand the dialogue. But you'll still be able to enjoy the nice animation ;)

A Sneak Peek!

It's been a long while since my last post, but I wanted to have something sweet to share before posting again- and that my friends, I have now!

We are about halfway through the production, and we're still on scedule. All the backgrounds have been completed and compositing has started, so this last monday we saw the first 20 second test on the Silver Screen, and now, here's your chance to have a peek at the finished look of the film. Just follow the link and have a bit of patience if you're on a slow connection, it's a fairly large file, but hopefully worth the wait:

Props to the animaters and Christen Bach, compositor extraordinair!

KRA-KA-BOOOOM!!!!

We have had an explosive start of production! The team of animators hit the ground running, and within a matter of days, scenes started turning in! We have actually produced 45 seconds of crisp, highquality animation allready!

I love those guys!

And it's not just their speed, each and every animator have brought something to the characters and added nuances to the scenes!

I am such a happy camper! As soon as i figure out how to, I will post some scenes! Keep your eyes peeled!

At The End of PreProduction!

It's been a while since the last update, as things have been busy on our vitual set. Preproduction will only run for one more week, but I'm happy to annouce that things are on track.

The turnarounds from KunztKoppel are nearly done (we will post them as soon as we have them all returned from touchup)

The dialogue have been recorded and went beyond our wildest expectations- I mean, this is easily that part of film that I've been most psycked about so far. The actors have laid down some awesome performances for the animators to work from.

And speaking of the actors, Let me just introduce the cast:

Our leading role is played by Kasper Leisner:

The Mother is played by non other than Vigga Bro:

The selfserving Priest is played by Allan Klie:And The Sheriff is played by speaker extraordinaire, Lars Junker Thiasgaard:


Andreas Monti caught the dialogue sessions on tape, and continues the turn out amazing art. He's working on the Design-Bible as I post this, and I just want to showcase these awesome drawings he did, inspires by the dialogue-recordings:


This film is gonna kick all kinds of @$$ !

Layouts!

Here's a selection of layouts from the very first scenes in the movie. These will be handed out to the animators to work from, as well as serve as our new and improved, touched up animatic.
