grOw/cinema, Episode III, frame 58 complete!

I just finished frame 58 of the latest Episode III. Wait, only 58?  Yes, unfortunately. This week, I got hit from all sides with "real life" work, some of which caused serious "technical crises", which took almost a day and a half alone. And, as usual, different clients all seemed to conspire to ask for work at the same time (no less that 4 projects this week). However, I endeavored to press on with grOw/cinema, and was able to complete 6 frames, some of which took longer due to "sequential" work.

Three of the "real life" four projects have been wrapped up and will not carry into next week.  The last one is on-going for the next 3 weeks or so, but shouldn't take an exorbitant amount of time. So, except for Monday which is a holiday here in the States, next week should be a solid grOw/cinema production week!

grOw/cinema, Episode III, frame 52 completed!

I didn't get as many frames as I wanted to, but, considering that I had a lot of "real life" projects to work on this week, I did quite well. I was able to complete another 15 frames, bring the total to 52 so far. But these frames were also quite detailed, and took some serious layering and alignment. There are a number of "animated" sequences in this episode, and this can take longer. (OK, not really animated, but when you flip the page, the subtle changes from frame to frame to frame makes the image look like it's moving.)

grOw/cinema, Episode III, frame 37 complete!

Coming here tonight to give an update on the progress of the latest Episode of grOw/cinema, I realized that I hadn't posted an update last Friday!  Whoops!  I vaguely remember running late last Friday, and promised myself I would come back and post an update later in the evening. Obviously, I got side-tracked and that didn't happen. So, I will post 2 previews this week!

So far, I was able to complete 34 frames since the last update 2 weeks ago, with frame 37 completed and work on frame 38 well underway. I am still undecided on where to end this Episode timeline-wise, so I am not stating how long this chapter will be just yet.

For now, enjoy these 2 previews from Episode III, titled "The Milky Lay"!
