Our Film is Complete!

After months of hard work our film is now complete! We have learnt so much.... from creating storyboards, characters and sets to animating with professional camera equipment. Fantastic! We recently recorded the voice overs and sound effects too which was great fun. Keep checking back to find out when our Premier Screening is.

In The Factory

After a full day of animating the first camera sweep inside the factory is now complete and it looks fantastic! This was one of the busiest scenes so far with lots of things moving including conveyor belts, pistons, dryers, blades, spoons and robotic hands! We can't wait until tomorrow when we will start animating the second camera sweep inside the factory, plus capture close ups from today.

And here's a huge shop we made for the street scene...

The Factory Set

All the artwork is now complete for the factory set and it looks fantastic! There will be lots of things moving all at the same time once we start animating including the conveyor belt, the chopping knives, rolling pins and spaghetti boxes - very exciting!

Making Machinery

At the same time as animating the farming scenes we are busy making the machinery for the new set. We have made lots of cogs for the conveyor belt as well as dryers, mechanical arms, rolling pins, dough balls and lot, lots more!


 And here's our title, made out of cardboard letters!

A New Set...

Now that we have animated the first and last scenes we have changed the set for the farm scene. We now have animals to animate as well as tractors, wheat and windmills! Here are the pigs waiting to be animted!

And this is what our new set looks like!

On the picture below you can see the set on the laptop screen that we are using to animate with.

Music for our film

Today we commissioned a musician to produce a piece of music for our film. We spoke to him over the phone, explained the storyline and described the type of music we would like him to create. We have asked him to use acoustic guitars, violins, flutes and the piano. It was very exciting to speak to him and we can't wait to hear the music he produces!
