The Visual Narrative Project

Wed Feb 6, 2013, 8:39 AM
Welcome to the first Film in Progress article! This is a series of articles I am doing on works in progress by filmmakers and animators. Sometimes in our line of work we don't have a lot to show for a long time because lets be honest, production time for film or animation takes an awful long time so it's difficult to show people what you're working on. So what I hope to achieve in these series of articles is to give you a chance to talk about something you're working on, and if you have stills and other pieces of development work you can show it off here as well!

To take part in this project or for more information just send me a note I can talk to you (and your team if applicable) about it!


So without further ado here is TimberClipse with his project, The Visual Narrative project!

:iconkingmancheng:
Firstly, lets find out a little about yourself, are you a student or professional?

:icontimberclipse:
I am a student, Freshman in college, and working with Meredith Basler, who is a Junior. We both attend Bard College at Simon's Rock.

:iconkingmancheng:
What techniques and software you like to use?

:icontimberclipse:
We have just chosen the script we will be creating so now securing a fantastic cast and crew is our next goal. From there we will be trying to secure a budget of around $10,000 in order to fully fund the film from start to finish. Finding all of this in a timely fashion is tricky, but we are reaching out as much as possible.

:iconkingmancheng:
What was your inspiration behind this?

:icontimberclipse:
My inspiration has personally come from many different avenues, most definitely my last film, The Symbol of Peace, was a huge part of my inspiration. its success has propelled me into wanting to create more and more.

I was also propelled by the motivation that working with a co-director has done. Although we each see different aspects of film as our favorite, when we work together we can achieve a lot more than sitting down on our own.

:iconkingmancheng:
What tips would you give to other film makers and animators who are just starting out?

:icontimberclipse:
Don't settle for second best. If you want to create something great, then go out and make sure that you can get it.
For me this will be in the cinematography. Everything will be storyboarded. Everything will be planned for how to light it. And for cameras, we have secured REDs from two different sources so we don't lose out on it.

:iconkingmancheng:
Thank you very much TimberClipse, good luck with this project and let us know when it is complete!

Lol!
Right after going through the mess to produce an original one-shot anime episode for the sake of a uni project, I know what you mean by "taking too long"! Not to mention, I had to put up with a couple of crushes, too much time to draw and colour the panels needed, not to mention the animating stage! And all of these to have the program crushed 3 times in a row! It didn't want to make it a movie! I've nearly ended up losing the last deadline as well! (It will be uploaded after feb 15 though, since it's still not in a movie format. I did carry my pc to show it to the teacher, because it couldn't be shown in any other way...)

Indeed! Problems always happen with movie making, especially towards the end when something doesn't want to render, or doesn't render correctly for one reason or another.

But as the old saying goes, no pain no gain.

The efforts of filmmakers and animators pay off in the end. ;)

That's true! But I have to admit that the efford an animator puts into his creation is more than a hundred times than any other visual artists. I mean, it literally takes months to do it, instead of approximelly a month to finish a normal piece that's fully detailed.

Effort is difficult to measure. But certainly animators do put a crazy amount of effort into their work. :)

It's true. It's also too time consuming.
