Two more months of M dot workinG and you'll have a new movie from me ^_^
I haven't had the time/energy/focus to write in this blog as I finish the film and try to stay somewhat healthy in doing so...
I've gotten through lighting/sending to render 1200 of the films 1400 shots so far- I've been trying to do 50 shots a day and have kept up that quota for most of my time doing it but it started taking a toll on me mentally and physically- it started making me feel a little crazy then my carpal tunnel started acting up making my wrist ache-
So I pushed really hard and got to the 1200 shot mark and took a week off as a break to hang out with my wife and sister in Northern Cali- three days into the break I lost the hearing in my left ear again- it happened in Feb of this year as well- the Dr. gave me a medication that makes me feel like I'm insane and makes me feel like general trash but my hearing came back albeit with super loud ringing in that ear- I've had ringing for the whole year actually- just glad the hearing came back-
So anyway I came back from my break early since I had to go to the hospital- shot #624 is currently rendering so there's still 498 shots waiting to render and I'll be adding another 200 more-
My render PC is able to render about 100 shots a week- so at this rate the film won't finish rendering in time BUT there's still hope! My wife is going to animation school soon so she's buying/building a new pc this week- so as soon as that's built I'll be able to render on that as well- she's going to build an OC'd 3770k which is the same as my render speed so the renders will be finished in time with both PC's going-
I just filled out my calendar for the rest of the year- its going to be crazy but I can do it- I finish the lighting/rendering in the next ten days then its 3 weeks of compositing/rendering then its 2 weeks of foley/sound design- then a week of encoding/release prep then thats it...
I can't wait till this is done so I can get started on something new ^_^ Really looking forward to getting this film out there and moving forward!Brought to you by professional weirdo M dot Strange.
