We mostly gave up on the evening working in the end, after falling asleep over a story at 6.30pm and waking up in the morning three times in a row. Now I’m getting a full day animating every other day, which is easier for these long shots. Today was going swimmingly, I listened to The Archers omnibus, the next episode of Ruth by Elizabeth Gaskell and four episodes of Villette, then I made a fatal error in picking wretched Face the Facts on bullying. I found myself animating a fox being torn apart by hounds and no white paper left to turn the mood around. Here is a picture just before the bloody massacre took place.
