I figured I wouldn't post about Swing Heil until it was handed in, I didnt want to let the cat outta the bag so to speak. But it's done now, well atleast a version of it is done. Work will probably continue over the summer.
For now however, from my point of view, I think it looks really brilliant visually. Cats colouring style really beefed up Gaz's brilliant street drawings, my animation beds in nicely to the opening pan down (fantastically constructed by Alan), and when we arrive at the club the style erupts into Miguels fun dance sequence. I really like the differentiation at this point, it has a sort of '70's vibe to it, perhaps in the colours/silhouettes, i'm not sure but I really dig it.
Not to forget those who I worked less closely with - Grethe, Insa, Jake, Andy, Darrien & Holly all beefing up the animation in their own way.
You realise a funny thing working in a group - anything that you make alone, you unquestionably hate. Without real reason, except over-indulgence I spose. But working in a group, your bits are outshone by the fantastic work of everyone else. Hatred (of your own stuff) becomes a mild distaste, if anything atall, because you are too busy soaking in the admiration elsewhere.
Here's some stills:
