A glorious return!

Hey it's been a LONG time since I blogged, so I best get on it. Lots has happened.

Firstly the props are almost finished for the cobweb hotel set. The set is now finished (painted, and the archway added) and I have a bunch of pictures for it, including the one with Daryl destroying the set so we could move it to a different room, which was heartbreaking!

Also, as seen above, it looks very nice under the light! Since that photo we have set up the lighting ready for animation though.

The webs for the set are now in production. Though at one point, we suspected we would be using cotton wool, but I think this just kicked people into gear to get things done properly. The pens on the sides of the set by Nicola have really brought out the set too. 

The puppets are all in production too, some are being created, and some are already cast. The majority is made out of foam latex, although the spider is being made from sculpted foam and latex glue except from the hands. This is being kept very much under wraps from lily though! 

Shane has done a brilliant job on the tokens for the room numbers, using the laser cutter. And his webs look so much nicer than before!

Me and dan have recently been writing up a list for the class to break up, so that we can split the animation between us, but it's exciting, soon we should be able to start animating!
