Things were going okay for my senior project until the past couple of days. Since Wednesday we're showing for the first time this semester, I really wanted to get everything together in a structured, comprehensible format so that everyone could finally see what I'm doing.
So much for that. Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. And now, I have no chance of having something worthy of showing. I feel so comfortable as a character animator, and I work best on paper. But as a film maker... I can't get my drawings on paper to the screen. It's a hurdle I just can't seem to get over. All attempts at compositing it failed. Now I don't have time to make it work.
This is what one of the shots would look like... had I been able to composite it.
I guess... until I figure out, that's all I have to show anyone. That and a big pile of animation paper with drawings that don't make sense by themselves on it. If you can think of a process that would work as far as putting it all together goes, I'm up for suggestions.
UPDATE: I think I figured it out! It only took half the week and now that I have it figured out it's 7pm the day before showing... so yeah, I still can't show a whole animatic, but at least now I know how to make one.
