Entry 88: Beyond Yourself
Currently, I am spending my off days to work on my short film, which is definitely a bigger project than I can handle, yet I persist. My initial goal was to create an early rough draft of my film in 2D before I create a finalized 3D version. This was my plan, until a friend showed me this video:
Before this, I was content with creating a simple 2D rough-draft film that had minimal quality, but this video reiterated my initial purpose of the film: to create an inspirational film that is entirely based on character movement.
There is no dialogue in my film, nor sound effects. With the exception of the score, the film depends entirely on the characters' movements, which is the main method of telling the story. If I stick with my original goal of making a simplistic 2D rough-draft in hopes of selling the beautiful 3D version to my editors/investors, then what's the point?
The timing of my friend sending me this video was more than a coincidence, which I will not take light-heartedly. I will now create a masterful rough-draft that will serve as a milestone in my film's developmental process, that way I know the final version will be that much better in the end.
