I AM NIGHTMARE Production Diary # 13
So this month has a relatively low quota of 10 shots a day- I've been keeping up with the quota and things have been going reasonably well- I'm coming up to the halfway point of the film and its still on target to be completed by the end of October 2013
I'm going to have to figure out how I'm going to render the film very soon as I'd like to release a teaser trailer by the end of June OR I could cut the trailer together using the temp renders then once the trailer is edited I could just render the shots in the trailer? NOW that seems like a good idea ^_^
As I edit the film- I use the music that MadDashiell or myself have already created for the soundtrack or I'll whip up some new music on the spot if nothing seems to fit
Since I'm going to be able to complete this whole film in one year total- I have to start planning my next one- my goal is to make an entirely new animated feature film every year- I have a couple feature scripts lying around that I wrote but I'm not sure if I'm going to do one of those or something new- on my recent flight back from Iceland I outlined two different animated feature ideas AND I reworked a script I had already written entitled "God Lives Underwater"
So I going to have to have to choose one pretty soon and get to pre-production work on it- I've always admired how Osamu Tezuka used his characters like Astroboy as actors in his films- if I am Nightmare and its characters are well received I'm thinking of using some of the characters as actors in my next film-
So for the next film I have to choose between one of these
God Lives Underwater- my own retelling of the popular "good vs. evil" myth popularized by the Bible
Darksided- A full length film based on my Darksided animated shorts (goal would be to create the most nightmarish animated feature film ever)
(Title withheld)- a story/film I've been building on since 2007, its my "post apocalyptic" film which I look at like my magnum opus- I've been afraid to start on it because I don't think I'm good enough at 3d to do it yet
(Untitled monster samurai film)- another idea I've been throwing around for a few years now but I haven't found the narrative hooks to make it really strong in my mind yet- just have character/settings and the basic narrative BUT I haven't discovered the hooks, the really powerful twists or story elements that make me want to make it a reality just yet
So yeh I'm just grinding away on I AM NIGHTMARE whilst pushing forward on the next projectBrought to you by professional weirdo M dot Strange.
