I put together one more Ember process post. It's a "multi-video video" this time, each showing different stages of the film as it went through production.
Top left: Storyboarding. I boarded a large chunk of the film before starting the school year. Lots of little timing tweaks happened during the first couple of weeks. I planned on animating to the music, so more small changes in timing were made once Denny finished his awesome track!
Top right: Compositing. I spent a lot of time on the compositing, and that video more or less shows how I went about it. Lots (looooots) of problem solving in this stage.
Bottom left: Animation! Those are pretty much all the pencil tests for the film. I timed the whole film out on X-sheets to figure out the exact timing of the music and the actions that the characters needed to perform and then used TVPaint for all the actual animation.
Bottom right: The final film. Not much else I can come up with for a description here.
So that's it for the "official" Ember process posts. I still have plenty of random things from the film lying around, but I'll probably just randomly upload those to my Tumblr sometime, maybe :)
