All of our artists made progress during week 6 in preparation for finishing a complete scene to be shown on Half Presentation. Having a complete animatic for everyone to track the progress became urgent at this point of the semester. Our goal is to have a 3-minute animatic by next week so that we can showcase it at Half.

Besides updating art assets, our artists also started working on camera and cinematics. We asked for feedback from our instructors closely because we did not completely follow the camera design in the pre-production package, and we will have to test out if these new shots work or not.

We also finished placing the models into the correct locations in some of the shots that have characters. We will be working on adding animations and textures to these characters.

Next week we will have our Half Presentation. We want to finish our first whole animatics earlier next week and then move to preparing our slides and having rehearsals so that the presentation can go smoothly.
