Senior Soiree - Spring 2011

As many of you know, this past Saturday was another Senior Soiree - the last official one before the completion of our humble film! The turn out was small, but it left more time for bonding and it was a lot more personal. We already have a hand full of people who showed up working and diligent about the project, so I think everything worked out for the better!

Jenny and I got a little sentimental about it. Seeing how people respond to the project as it's progressing into it's final stages is really making me feel good about the final showing in June.

Other seniors were there, including the makers of the graduate film Rain Dance and the maker of Test Flight. Even just among the seniors/graduates participating in the Soiree, there was a very rich community. Rain Dance was even giving away stickers - which my friend, Jay, quickly put to good use.

Happy belated Easter, everyone!

Visual Goodies

As we are entering the home stretch, I thought it would be appropriate to give previews of what the crew is presently working on! Right now, the we are cleaning up rough animation and coloring like mad crazy (producer & director included). The film is looking beautiful with our first colored shots nearing completion and all layouts to be completed in two weeks. Insane times are ahead but our crew is fantastic and working really hard to produce something absolutely beautiful! We can't wait for everyone to see the results. A hearty thank you and congratulations to our most patient and talented crew!

If you are a SCAD animation student and are interested in helping Robin finish up her senior film this quarter, please feel free to shoot me, the producer, an email ( We will be more than happy to get you on board!

Next Phase

Bravo again, everyone, for finishing up the rough animation section of production! The next phase is going into production immediately starting this Sunday at 5pm specifically! That is when the first meeting for clean up with start and everyone who's been waiting patiently can finally jump up and get to work! (for more information on this meeting email me, Robin Stanberry, at

Some other meetings that simultaneously happened this weekend have been Painting Layout meeting and Sound Design meeting! These two teams are the smallest teams in the production (Sound Design winning with an impressive 1 person), but are some of the most important departments! The layout department even has a rough color test screen shot of what the film is aspiring to be:

I am thrilled to see everything coming together. As a director, this is one of my favorite parts. But it doesn't come without some hard work! So let's give it our best, everyone!
