I’m still alive, so that’s one good thing.
The other is that I survived hell week and it wasn’t that bad. Didn’t really work past 4 am so I consider that a good one (as in no all-nighters). I’ve had much worse which could be good material for a later post. Ahh, the war stories we animation types love to tell…
Since I didn’t write in the Production Journal as much as I would have liked for this first show, I’ll be giving a wrap up in the next post. I’ve been in recovery (mostly mental) for the past two days. Sometimes you just gotta rest. Then gear up to do it all over again. So I’ll be back very soon…I hope some of you are still sticking around.
In the meantime, do you have a good “worked myself to death” story? My worst one is losing a week’s worth of work (220 panels) while working on the computer and then re-doing it all from memory with the final stretch being 44 hours straight (OK, with a few naps in there). Chock one up for doing storyboards on paper!
Have at it. : )
