Final Color Footage


© Andreas Deja


We now have a complete sequence in final color. I call it the "Montage Sequence" where we watch Sarah bonding and growing up with Mushka, the Siberian tiger. The character poses in this frame actually don't match, because by the time the tiger cub jumps forward, Sarah is already running off screen right. But this makes for a better looking film still.
In the previous scene Sarah's father asks her: "What are you going to call him?"
She looks at the cub's birthmark on its forehead, which reads like an "M". In this scene she calls him from behind: " Muuushka!"
Animation by me, background by the wonderful Natalie Franscioni-Karp and effects by Daniel Ernesto, who pluses every scene he works on. 
And...oh yeah, music by Richard M. Sherman, arranged by the incredibly talented Fabrizio Mancinelli.
This will be a 30 min. hand-drawn animated film.
We are getting there!!

    1. Thanks, Mike! We still have the third act of the film to animate, but we will be finished sometime next year. I hadn't realized that opaquing and coloring the animation is such a huge job.! But we just found help on that end.

    2. What's the difference between opaquing and coloring?

    3. You have to paint the character (digitally) in white first, final colors go on top.

    4. Andreas, any idea what the distribution for the film will be? Will we get to see it as a short in front of a Disney feature next year? Apologies if you've already answered this in a previous post.

  9. I love the way that Sarah girl dresses herself for the winter - the green leggings that match with the red boots and the purple coat, or is it lilac? She has a nice bow on the back of her head
