Wargoon Flishe Watch

including the Pome of the Day Project

Monday, March 06, 2006


Dr. Hubert Zork, present and accounted for. I am present and counting to present to you the on-going animation diary of the fictional animator Akre, and his further work upon his animated feature film Wargoon Flishe.

As always, I report today about yesterday. Yesterday was a cloudy Sunday, a winter weekend day, and the fictional one spent the day inside, making granola, making enchalada hotdish, and making animation. He is now up to page 27 of his script, after making much steady progress forward.

His animation of yesterday had nothing to distinguish it from other work of the past upon this project. It was workmanlike, it was passing the hump to get to other places in his fictional universe. He set keyframes, he put together After Effects compositions, he duplicated one composition and made changes to make another scene, he imported in new versions of the same actors to make them talk or walk, and then he set the computer on its render mission. For much of the day, he simply watched as the render bar chugged in its forward progress.

No great discoveries were made. He did some light box drawing for an upcoming scene. While the computer rendered, he read about the history of animation, about the artistry that turned into an industrial process under Disney and others. And then he came back, once all the files were rendered, and edited them in his editing program, Premiere, to match the audio of his recorded voice.

In the evening he watched the Academy Awards and watched one of his old film school buddies accept an award for Visual Effects.

Enough of that fiction. Now it is time for the Pome of the Day project.

the wave
my toe
and then
that's entertainment

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
