Looks great so far! Is this planned as an action film or more of a comedy style scifi thriller? And are you planning on submitting it through any fests/distribution or is it more of a fun skill builder project?

Might be too early for all that, but I'd be curious how you go through your planning process.

It’s a bit action with a bit of comedy. The plan was ‘what can I shoot on my own in the house with what I have?’.

The plan after was to see if DUST wanted it. They took my film ‘Fissure’ which was ace so I thought this would be right up their street. During writing it became clear that as a. Idea it had web series potential. So I have a few ideas for future episodes.

If it’s any good.

Awesomesauce. Yeah getting on Dust was my plan too, but I guess they didn't care for our film. Never got a reply back.

Being able to do digital FX is a great skill to have, I'm sure your series will do well. It already looks pretty great from what I can see.

i find the renderings interesting. but i haven''t done any animation so i cant appreciate the making of aspect of it.

are you doing all the CGI first and then filming the live action stuff last ?

Building all the assets I think I need first. Then will shoot. Just so I can get straight into it without thinking ‘oh man, I need to build this or that’ Working on storyboards at the minute as well.

I actually enjoy watching the timelapses, to see what its like designing special FX. I will never have the smarts and tenacity to attempt it, so its cool seeing it in the works.

Are you going to do "pre-vis" for your film's sequences? I guess some of the early stuff you showed would count as that?

Hey, I see you are an editor, would you like to edit one of my films for me? Contact me at drowynaut55@gmail.com if so!

Glad you are enjoying them. I find time lapses can unlock bits of the process I havn't thought of before. They can also be super relaxing as well.

As for pre vis, yeah, story boards mainly. But would be cool to do a full animatic.
