These are great! Is there another format you can import from? Technically, this isn;t a Star Trek film, so it's not really a Starfleet class... It's basically a cobbled-together ship that looks like a giant metal Mallard duck.
Here they are as a PDF, so at least you can see what they look like:
I was thinking of a Borgi-fied Daffy.
^^^If you blur them a bit they'll look even more TMP like.
Oh -- and the reason I'm not adding them later in post is because pretty much nothing in this film will be added in post. The only two greenscreen elements will be the main viewscreen and the spacehips -- which will be models.
We're going pretty old school on this project.
I think I love you.
One of the cool things about puppetry is that you can do these crazy fantastic stories -- almost like you can do in animation -- but in real time. I think in a way, if we do a lot of post production, it'll take that "realism" out of the finished project. And, considering every character in the film is an 18-inch tall puppet, we need to keep all the realism we can get!
In-camera also means your post production is potentially much less of a bottleneck.
Most of our post production will be spent doing the sound, actually. That's one of the perks/drawbacks of puppets, too -- you can have different puppeteers work the puppets throughout the production -- but everything has to be dubbed later. On the plus side, lip synch is a lot easier, though.
I was trying to export the flash files to avi- it won't let me do flv format. But there are plenty of free flv converters. If u have illustrator u can convert the image to an swf which I can edit in flash. I could do some screens of the ship if u wish
Here's the finished animations. I emailed u a link to a download zip file.
These are all so great! Thanks again! Just sent you swf files. Hope you can use them!
