5 Second Animation Day: A-Trak Recess
So what ended up destroying me the hardest was the least expected step of all. Compositing. I spent a whole night at Titmouse just trying to get the damn thing right and still needed a little extra help the next day by my director, Juno Lee and compositing master, Keith Yan. I also gotta give a shout out to my friend Brian Kim for helping me color more than half of this micro-film. Anyhow, after many excruciating hours of sitting in front of the computer waiting for that awesome render, at 1am Thursday night I was ready to throw some sound in there. However, I had another dilemma. I needed music and our lady-in charge, Shannon Prynoski, rightfully wasn't at the company at 1am to let me skim through her public domain music library. So I went online and found a decent public domain music page called Purpleplanetmusic.com. I gave the website name out to three more of my friends that were in the same boat. I finished my sound design around 2am Friday morning and was more than happy to go home and sleep in my bed. Finally, Friday 6pm rolls around and everyone was going nuts in anticipation for 5 Second Day. The show got on the road and everyone had an awesome time laughing profusely and blowing their minds. It was a good day, hehe.
