Raccoon Moustache!

Brian pointed out to me the other day that it could be quite funny, when there is the close up on the raccoon about to fire the gun, that in one of the close ups (when it is snapping back n forth) to put a moustache on him. Spongebob had this in an episode, when it was cutting back n forth between him and a seahorse (Debbie). It works really well, so it'd be a good idea to test it out and see if it works!

Family Guy clips (more influence)

In this clip, we see what it would be like if Family Guy had over exaggeration in their animation style. Two styles which, in the film, we are trying to mix. 

The important bit in this clip is when Brian slowly rises into the shot, when the cat is on Lois. Originally we had something in mind like this, when Sarah Palin would slowly rise from behind the mound of snow. But since we have had a change of character with the raccoon, we have had to change it to a very quick look up the back down the mound, as the character is very small, quick and nippy, it will suit it much better.

And this...just because its funny. OH! And it's about Alaska.

Making a start on updating this blog!!

Here is a couple of Family Guy clips of people falling. These will influence a couple of the falls in the film! It is a great style, very humorous way of seeing someone fall. It's very quick paced and the way the bodies are kind of distorted, arms and legs overlapping the body, is a great way on ending the shot.

Rifle Reference

Quickly testing this out, hope it doesn't break the page or anything.

So hopefully what you see is the rifle model, fully interactive. Rotate with left mouse, zoom by click middle mouse and pan with right click, or view it in better detail here http://p3d.in/EzcVt . Missing a few faces, but apparently thats just what happens.

Forest scene roughs

Rough compositional sketch for the forest pan that may be re-used throughout the film, in different lights.  The box shows actual screen size, and the gradient light in the sky will stay fixed to the camera.  This is approx. 3 screens wide at the moment, the spare space at the left will allow for it to be painted out to 4 screens if needed.  Also need to decide where we will add foreground elements that don't interfere with the action of the characters.  Once all the big decisions are made, I will go back in and add the outlines and flat colours/shading in the style of the previous background with the hut.

Possible animation influences n stuff

The Spongebob and Ren and Stimpy images are those horrible, disgusting, funny detailed pics and would be decent for us to do something like it in Willy!

Tom and Jerry! Animation influence?
