More Blinking!..

Some playblast tests for Flossy and Natty, and then in the Group shot for Walter, Clarissa and Natty:

I'm pretty pleased really! I'll add a bit of secondary animation next along with some motion blur tests :)

New Designers Improvement To-Do List...


  • It's awfully fast but it's hard to slow it down when it's working with the music. Cut certain sections out or trim them down perhaps?
  • The scene at 13secs camera could go up then lead into scene at 19secs then to scene at 17secswhich will zoom out to see the spiral scene. scene at 21secs needs to be somewhere but not sure where yet.
  • These changes could lead to a slightly longer stairs scene so the close up is not so rushed.
  • The deep breath at 28secs should be longer if possible, feels too rushed.
  • The final sequence needs to be more dynamic. More tweaking on the animation to make the struggle a little more violent but also more inter-cutting with close ups and different angles to build tension.

Dream Cleaners:
  • More 2D work. I have a nice selection at the moment but I feel like a few illustrations of the characters interacting would work well.
  • Get the models finished!
  • Get stickers and t shirts made!

  • Business cards!
  • Books!

DVD Box Update...

Here's how the box is looking currently:

It may be best to remove the moon and cloud, leaving just a few stars scattered around so it doesn't distract from the characters too much. It's definitely better though, now I just have to wait for the re-jigged scene to finish rendering :P

DVD Box and Disc Designs...

I haven't decided between these two discs yet:

Here's my rough DVD box cover:

I may change the back so there are a few nice images of the characters there. I like the use of the environment concept but I think it's unclear that it's the characters you want to see.

Dream Cleaners Intro *Now with more SFX!*...

Below is an improved version of the introduction, now with extra sound effects and more Walter :)

I definitely think it's an improvement but feel free to let me know if you feel something isn't working.

I've also got a few renders of the last shot with different backgrounds below:

Which do you think works best? I quite like the first blue one but it'll be great to hear what you all reckon too! :)
