I am finally back at my job after four days of being sick, and I’m behind where I want to be on the film, but chest colds just knock all the energy out of me.
Two cartons with my animation paper were delivered by UPS today and were waiting for me on the doorstep when I got home. I’ve transfered them into storage boxes. This is good for about five and a half minutes worth of animation at 15 fps.
I am still trying to make the story work. One thing that struck me today is that even though this is a funny movie, it is still at its heart a statement against capital punishment, and if I lose track of that part, it’s not the film I want it to be. I hope this means that I’m zeroing in on getting the film written, so that I can start using my new supply of paper and actually do some animating!
