Sorry about the last entry. Turns out I was fretting for nothing, since on Monday, the day of the hand in, my Tutor informed us that, yes, this is part of our degree grade, but the majority of the marking wont be done till second hand in in February which is where the majority of our grade will come from. So I was working myself up into a state for PRE MUCH NOTHING.

I did get lots of work done though, not as much as I had wanted, but enough. And of course, the Sunday night, the night before hand in, Tumblr decided to commit suicide for over 24 hours, making it impossible for me to update my blog. The blog that I have to hand in as part of my production journal. The blog I actually started BEFORE the hand in unlike my usual rush at the end. JUST MY FUCKING LUCK, NO? If it was going to die, it had to be on that day. I'm moving all my university stuff to Blogspot now, because Tumblr has just been too unreliable, and I cannot afford for it to do that again on an actual IMPORTANT hand in. Which SUCKS because as far as I know, Blogspot doesn't have a backup tool like tumblr does. RHGHN

But yeah, I got the animatic done, and a couple of short animations, but my tutor told me that it did not reflect the amount of time I've had, because of all the stuff I've been struggling with. I'm going to do some work over the winter break to try and get something WORTH handing in, because I cannot let my brain fuck up my degree. I won't let it >:[

If anyone wants to see the animatic for my final film, it's here. Any feedback on stuff you think needs changing would be great. The music was written for us by a second year in the creative sound and music course, but we gave her the wrong animatic to time it to which is why it's a little short.

But yeah now I am recovering from all that stress and I'm back at home with my parents. There's still some snow on the ground, and we decorated the Christmas tree yesterday, and I've spent the majority of my time at home so far with my sister playing half life 2 and portal, and watching Glee. It's really great to be home, and to have not to worry (at least for a little while) about University. It's nice to get back into things I like, like RPing and icon making and drawing for ME, as well as seeing my sister omg I have not seen her in like 3 months sdjkgjkfhd

Man, I cannot WAIT for this degree to be over.

I am glad things are okay. DDD: I was reading your tweets and I was worried! That really sucks that tumblr is so fail. Or the 4chan is. Really, I am unsure ahaha.

The animation was super adorable. I remember looking at the start of it long ago, or maybe some sketches. I LOVE what the story was, seriously. Traveling to another place via a puddle is tres cool. :)

<33333 YOU CAN DO IT!

Yeaah I was NOT happy when I was posting those tweets HAHAHA. 8( Fucking 4chan. Why can't they use their powers for GOOD. SOME OF US HAVE DEGREES ON THE LINE 8(

Thank you! I possibly posted some sketches a while back, or spoke about it. Thanks!

Yay I'm glad you're feeling a little better now!

And awwwww that animatic was super cute! :D

Me too! That much stress was not good for me 8( I was literally shaking by the end of it.

Thank you! Anything you think I should change/make clearer?

Uuugh man, I'm glad that's over with then. 8( Try to avoid more of that in the future!

Hmm, I think I'd have to go back and watch it again to check...I think maybe the scene after the guy in the balloon is a little bit odd in the sense of that the transition from the kid on the outside and the scene on the inside is iffy, but that's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head.

I am SO glad that things have worked out, that deadline seemed so terrifyingly huge that I know I would have freaked out had I been in your place!

I am totes gonna check out your animatic-thingy when I finally get to my computer. Eeeee animationy stuff!

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-12-09 05:22 pm (UTC)(link)
ME TOO. It seemed like THE END OF THE WORLD and then she was like LOL JOKES GUYS and we sort of stared at her with disbelief. I wanted to cry fgdkjhfdjknh.

fff it's not really animation BUT IT'S A START.

So I have no idea how one properly critiques animation but I QUITE LIKED IT? It was a great story and was very cute!

/HUUUUUUUUUUGS I am glad you are getting some time to rest and take it easy. How much longer do you have til the end of your degree? YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE IT ♥

It will totally be worth it! And that is not very long at all! You will push through and it will be over before you know it. :)

I'm really glad you're recovering and enjoying yourself. ♥

Also, I loved your animatic. It's so cute! If I could give advice, I would but sadly I suck and don't have the faintest about animating.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-12-09 10:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Thanks! I'll get onto your commission asap! Are there any scenes in particular you want?

Thank you! <3

[identity profile] batfowl.livejournal.com 2010-12-09 10:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Only that I would like some in his civvies, with the scene at the end, but other than that, nothing in particular.

You're welcome. c:
