Hey kids. I’d like to say that it is 12:16 AM and I have officially finished off the character animation on “GFG#5: How To Hook Up An NES”. All that remains is a single background that I think I can cobble together relatively quickly, design an already existing prop from a new angle, and give Jacquo a little shadow pass to help root him to the BG. There’s still a few odds and ends I’d like to get to if I can find the time, however I’m willing to say I feel pretty confident that animation production is completed.
The next step is to hand it off to Joe for sound and mixing. A few weeks ago, Joe gave Phil and I a little taste of what he had cooking, and I really liked what he was doing with the score. Without a doubt Joe’s work with the soundtrack gives the short a nice coat of paint and polish, and really ties it all together nicely. I can’t make any promises, but I’m hoping that a final version will be available here at the ol’ Shamoozal sometime next week. OK, I’m going to bed now. I’m pooped.
