First Shots and Technical Glitches

Filming has begun! Still hampered by the technical issues - the main computer is still in the shop, and the older one isn't up to running Dragon, so it'll be nice once I get the new setup up and running.

In the meantime I started filming.

The main room light has burnt out; Henry pulls down some Christmas lights he'd strung up in his room so that he can light his way to find a new bulb and fix the main light. Ironically, the Christmas lights burnt out just after this scene. I'll film other scenes while waiting for the replacement, but thought I'd post this one for now.

(edit - looks like it's playing a bit choppy, hopefully it'll play properly!)

Neato! Animation! Is fun! It's exciting to see hundreds of hours and thousands of decisions come together into an actual film. Wee.

Yes! Congrats! It's like painting the house after all the prep-work! Enjoy and wear comfy shoes!

Looks completely brilliant so far, Emmy. I love the conceit of Henry having to pull down the lights to locate a new bulb.

I really like the mood that is set. And the way, Henry moves. And I'm really looking forward to the upcoming shots. Great stuff. As always ;)

Looks great! I would add a 5 frame hold when he yanks the lights down (with the hold in there right at the moment before they start to come down), just to make the movement read better and add some drama to the move, but it's only a minor crit- the overall look is great.
