Week 26 Animation - Debt Unpaid - work in progress

At work this week I was talking about needing to animate for my weekly animation when a fellow animator named Ryan Hood said, "What are you going to animate this week? More running?". Well Mr. Hood the answer to your inquiry is yes, yes I am.

Week 25 Animation - Debt Unpaid - work in progress

And another scene. This one still needs some work, but I did manage to figure out all the shots for "Debt Unpaid" and do an animatics pass. Now I just need to animate all of it. Piece of cake right?

Week 24 Animation - Debt Unpaid - work in progress

This week I realized drawing backgrounds on paper and scanning them in in Photoshop is a much better option the trying to draw them in Flash. I'm actually pretty happy with how this shot turned out. Next week I'm hoping to crank out at least two shots. I'm telling you all this so you'll hold me accountable!

Week 23 Animation - Debt Unpaid - work in progress

Here are a couple more shots from "Debt Unpaid". It's been awesome figuring out camera angles, deciding what's the best way to tell the story and experimenting with Flash. However after two weeks of working on this piece I'm realizing it's going to take me a while to get it done. What is it about animation that starts so simple but ALWAYS becomes more complicated? I even have a post-it on my computer that says "Keep It Simple!".
