Hola amigos, it is the passionfruits again! Today was – you guessed it – even more animating, but it was basically just editing previous scenes and squinting at the screen for hours. But the difference was that it was colder than usual (thanks, rain 😒) and that we were sO MUCH MORE tired than usual.
Amongst the four of us, the earliest time we slept last night was 11pm, latest 3am. When today rolled around, we all felt like overcooked zombies, and after lunch, it seriously felt like we could just collapse there and then.
But to keep yourself awake, you will eventually resort to doodling, and boy did we doodle alot. Calligraphy, the sunset, people with wonky limbs, disney princesses; we doodled our way out of sleepiness. But after dragging ourselves out of exhaustion, there was still animation to do.
A minor spoiler, but our animation contains digitally drawn rocks, and these rocks are a real pain in the neck. Minutes of animating rocks turned to hours animating rocks, and these rocks will most likely haunt our dreams tonight.
Towards the end of the day, however, Mr Nova finally taught us how to animate rocks easier, by just copying and pasting. And in total, it only took about fifteen minutes. Fifteen minutes in contrast to our HOURS OF WORKKK
And last year’s winning team came back to visit us too! They were caught up with our Guess The Theme poster for half an hour, before finally guessing the answer 👏👏 not going to tell everyone the answers yet, but the answers they tried to give were amusing, to say the least. So to anyone who hasn’t seen our Guess The Theme game, just come on down to our tent, and you may stand a chance to win a passionfruit!:00
And thus the day concludes; a journey of exhaustions, frustrations, but also enjoyment and fun. We laughed a lot today, and it was a real nice day we had, just animating and having fun.
And don’t think we forgot about the CHRISTMAS MONTH! That’s right, it’s the 1st of December!🎅🎄 and we unfortunately didn’t prepare much for the start of a new month, so as we stop here for tonight, enjoy a boomerang of us flapping our arms:
