its a CORKER!

just a simple design for the cork board i wanted to model a few design and get Andy to choose the one he likes best, i always like to run thing by Andy so i know im doing what he wants, and his agreed to my designs.


Another thing that needs to be model is the periscope for the sub is this a important item because it gets use in the film so i throught il get some source images and it may spark some ideas.


ok so have got a sound design student onboard to help with the sound and the sound effects for the movie, he will be given the animatic when it finished by andy when he can work on it because the timing will be the same as the final film, i contract him on facebook to ask him,

As well as this i have contacted a music composer to produce a sound track for the film he will be getting the same animaitc as Dave the sound guy, and the same as Dave i contacted him on facebook about three weeks ago. but no reposense so i saw he was on facebook chat so i ask and his up for helping so thats all good.

the script

the problem from the get go, the script, its not that it wasn't a strong story to began with, but needed some work to it to give it depth and so it could relate to the audience more, after talking to dan and mike they raised some good points and give us ideas on how to improve the story itself, unluckily for andy how had to re write two time.

then the lecture with Dave Bull storyboard artist from Aardman we went thought the story with him and got feed back, he was looking for that GOLDEN moment in the film when the kid connects with the conga eel, and at that point it wasn't strong enough,

so again Andy went back to the drawing board, but now after seeing the storyboard im confident with are story, and full prays go to Andy his be working on the script for weeks and finally his hard work paid off.

mike made a good point at least we confronted to problem this early instead working through the year and working it could be better to late.

Bad Penguin


i no its not the best drawing but was just a quick sketch when the look was fresh in my mind. we want a old fashioned aga in the sub, i i will attempt to model this in the next few days.

houston we have a problem

when pencil mets paper

we wanted to show the background story of the character, and the way we throughout we could achieve this was to show photographs of the kids childhood and how he come to this time when the movie starts. i did a few quick sketches for Andy to develop from.

Thursday 11th

we had a talk with dan, he made us rise some problems about the story, one element was the bag full of fish and how this would work in the film if its possible to produce as a team, would it be done. so how we need to find a solution.

Tuesday, 9 November 2010


I come across this free download and fort its a key element in are pre production for the deep, it help to format script writing aswell as story boarding. which is a major part of this term.
