There's always a bit of quiet time and on this occasion it has much to do with how intense the animating has become. Due to regulating the light and working conditions in the new animating partition of the room, it's not been possible to photograph the animators at work... yet.
So far about 40 seconds of footage has been animated and the animators, Nadine and Andrew, have been so far working in sequence. Therefore they are currently concentrated in the hallway.
This is the narrowest section of the set and so it's fair to say that it's also the most difficult to work with. And with these delicate problems come interesting tricks of the camera. For example, where it seems a whole wall is reflected in the mirror, only a tiny section is used so that the camera can assume it's ideal position, where the wall would originally have stood.
Thanks to this hot summer and sealed windows at the studio, we've installed a couple of fans to keep the animators from passing out. It has, in fact, become extremely cosy at studio 9 with the dim lights and dark corners. It's somewhat like a mole's home.
More pictures will be added shortly.
Thanks for your patience.
