I’ve decided to begin again with the animation, having shot too many minutes to admit to. It may seem like a wasteful way to work but I’ve always found it hard to imagine everything on the storyboard or animatic and the purpose or centre of the story is better revealed through the animation. It’s fairly liberating and I feel that I can scrap alot of the superflous detail and doing all the animation quickly will make it look fairly fresh. The technique in itself is fairly speedy, so I hope I can get it done in two months, though I am only working two days per week on it. If I’m wrong about that I can either use the old shots, or eat my storyboard on the steps of Hackney Town Hall.
