My Production Diary for Jam #3 (H21-918) pg02

H21-918 is the working title for the production. I came up with the real title as soon as I had my idea but revealing it now would be a spoiler.

H21 for Halloween 2021 and 918 for the deadline of September 18th but I'll be finished long before that date. (this is a lie)

4-1-21 (68)

Today is my self imposed deadline to finish a costume commission. I am not finished, and I decided to do more of the project then I intended and everything I am doing is taking twice as long.

Costume is finished. I will still make him some LED accessories before his next convention in September. I can now start on my next project.

6-11-21 (139)

My new PC is finished. I ordered the parts to build it a while a go but I didn't want to interrupt the costume build. Luckily I had upgraded the graphics card in the old PC not long ago so I am able to build the new one for around $600.

Supplies finally ordered. I have never built a puppet from silicone but want to try. I purchased a trial kit of Eco Flex 30, Psycho Paint base, Silc Pig Sampler and three LED panel lights and three 5 volt plugs - Total $145

I built a foam board set and put up the camera and some test lighting. My scene takes place at night and I wanted to take some test shots. Also I am able to measure the set and see how much room I have and how much set will need to be built. I also download the free trial of Dragon Frame. Even though my camera is listed I wanted to make sure it all works. So it looks like my workflow will be capture with Dragon Frame 4, edit with Photoshop, composite with Video Studio.
