Progress

So happy and proud to report that progress on MUSHKA has been substantial. 
We are locking several more sequences in final color, it is a joy watching it all come together. At this pace we should finish around summer/fall of next year. 
This has been, and still is, an amazing ride. There were times when I thought: What's wrong with a short film that is seven minutes long? 
But telling a story is funny, in a way that it tells you how long it needs to be. MUSHKA can't be told in seven or ten minutes. It is a half hour film. That's the length necessary to cover everything, the development and relationships of the characters as well as the overall storyline. 

In the photo you can see how we add "character effects". This is a process that happens after character opaquing and coloring. Minor highlights and shadows are being added, but also deeper color areas on a tiger. His back, parts of his face etc. 

So far so good!!

  2. Congratulations, Andreas! I know it's been a difficult time for 2D animation, but I'm glad to know that people like you are still doing your part to help keep the art form alive in a meaningful way, like Sergio Pablos has been doing recently with Klaus.

    I really hope I'll be able to see it when it's finished.
