It begins again-Day 1

Fire! from Matt D. Lee on Vimeo.

First day of animation on The Shortcut. Usually I like to animate the small shots first, because it gets a good momentum going.

Around New Year's Eve, I finally locked the first minute of the animatic, which I've been reworking for God knows how long, because it needs to hold up to scrutiny on a second viewing (the story plays with perception and reality). The remaining parts of the story are set in stone.

Yesterday, I wrote a new sequence that will hopefully be a funny set piece. Unlike my last film, "Pinhead"- which was a slow-burn thriller in which the comedy intentionally ramped up towards the end--Shortcut is meant to be a silly film.

Onward! Let's own 2011!
