saturday evening animation

Dr. Zork is at his post with these recordings of the further animation exploits of the fictional one John Akre, animator of no renown. He spent the morning at a long neighborhood meeting and then in the afternoon went to see a movie with his sweetie. The movie was Why We Fight - very good. They stopped in a bookstore and he bought a thick used book that was a history of animation. But after the bus ride home, that left only the Saturday evening in which to do some Saturday night animation.

Now he is at his computer. He made his way down a couple paragraphs of page 25 of his script. He set keyframes for mouth movement until he could barely click, until he could barely look at the computer screen. He composed out several versions of the shots he was working on, and set up After Effects for a long line of renders that took over two hours to squish out. As he waited for them to render, he began to sleepily read from his big thick animation book. At least he got thru the introduction.

This morning he will put together the pieces that he composed and keyframed last night.

That is enough about his animation for today. I am certain that we will see more information about it tomorrow, if he has his way with me. Now it is time for the Pome of the Day Project pome. Here it is.

the dead are in your dreams
in fact
they are the special guest stars

you will be talking
so dreamily, so normal
but then you have to go on
for some tangent

you wake up
before you walk back
only then do you recall
that one died.

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
