taking one frame at a time since 1999

So, looks like any member can have a blog here!
If I were blogging, maybe I would say how I finished my part of the animation on a short film by Isabel Peppard called Butterflies, and link to her production blog...
http://butterfliesanimation.com/
So if that worked, it should be a link.
Trying something else - A Direct link to a time lapse video posted on a page of the butterflies blog.
http://butterfliesanimation.com/video-timelapse-animation
This is all hampered by trying to do it on an iPad, but let's see what happens.

Thanks Izzy!     Yes, Tony's film is in post production as well now.  

I see you are doing some more post production on Butterflies, with surround sound audio.  Great to see you posted a link to your new trailer here at the message board.

I did get to do a bit on my own stuff, but have put it aside again while I animate a creature for an indy live action feature film.

So while I was getting back to Mr Poe -

I tried a big closeup of the bay window and comped the room interior set behind it, but the 24th scale didn't quite hold up when seen that close.  So I made a 1:6 scale window exterior that can attach to the interior set.  This means the raven can tap directly on the glass.  I've also made a desk for a newspaper editor's office, and printed out some 19th C style newspapers to help get across the idea that it's at a newspaper.  Easier than making a 1:6 working model of a printing press to put in the background, with several apprentice printer puppets tending to it... though I did have a moment where I considered it.  But it's for only one 3 to 4 second shot, so sanity prevailed.

Its great that you are out of the animation factory and finally have time for your own stuff again.

Love this house Nick, beautiful design and realisation. You are a legend:)

I'm gonna make an academic, very profound and opinionated commentary...

COOOooooooOOOLLL!

Really like the new stairs. I'm loving the entire house actually.

At the top, on the left you can click My Blog and you'll only see your own blog. For the rest of us, once we click on a title of one of your blog posts (on the page where they all show up) then we're in your blog. 

Once you start making separate blog posts they'll start showing up when you update - otherwise nobody can tell whn you post unless they've subscribed to email updates on it.

I've finished the new steps, which do look better on this house.

I tried this closer shot of the porch to see how it holds up - from this distance the  posts are looking a bit chunky, but it's still not too bad.  But then I took a really close shot of the window and putting the room interior behind, and cropped in to a 1920 x 1080 frame to get even closer.  This is the frame, shrunk to 800 wide (actually displaying at 750 wide I think), and it really is looking pretty rough.  If I want to go this close I will probably need to build a 1:6 window exterior set.  It would help to have it in that scale if I want the raven to rap on the glass, anyway.   Same with the porch, if I crop in to HD from my 12 MP image,  the wooden fretwork starts to look like roughly cast concrete.

Thanks for comments guys!

Vitriol - yes, looks like I have to make a new post - but then, it's like all blog posts by anyone are all the one blog.  I can't find a way to separate my blog from Strider's or Anthony's so you can follow my progress if you choose, or follow someone else's and not have my stuff getting in your face every time I do a new post.

Another addition to my top secret blog post - the house with tower added.  The only thing left is to change the front steps - the thick stone looks much too chunky and doesn't really suit the house.  A second set is on the way.  Oh, and then I need to make a front fence probably, and add a street...
