So, I've finished Scene 1 of my entry, and with a few more minutes of number
crunching, my CPU will have completed the first 17 seconds! Woohoo, time for
a beer (if I'd drink any...)!

Still some models need to be made, most scenes need to be broken down in
animated parts, and yet a few aren't even storyboarded... But I think I can
pull it off in time (hopefully). How many Povers are participating this
round? How much of your entry have you finished yet?

Regards,
Tim

I know you're quite talented in many facets of povving.  But never put a
"protagonist" in mind with your kind of work.  Have you shared a still of
your protagonist anywhere?

As for myself, I always dream up a plot that takes 5 minutes to tell, and
then don't fully develop it even in one minute.

Oh, hm, thanks for the praise... *turns red*

Nope, I haven't, to keep it a surprise for the IRTC. But mind you that it is
not really a full-fledged character. I started late and had no
animation-macros and whatnot before I started. So, in order to keep my life
simple, I stuck to something which is easier to animate. I mentioned
somewhere in a thread that the Duel is about a Jet and an UFO...

I do want to create some sort of character for later animations though. I
had (and still have) lots of fun making this short, and I think with an
animatable character I could do much, much more.

Heh, yeah, I know. My plot changed several times throughout animation as I
went through it again and again to check for parts that weren't needed or
overly difficult to animate. After all, there's only so much time... But I
just crossed the 2 minute line yesterday! But found that I'll have to
rerender a few scenes...
