Finishing The Buddha

If not for a last minute scene change (a different way of morphing from a rope to a river) we would've been finished with production on The Buddha yesterday.

still from the sequence depicting the Buddha's death

That new bit is basically complete, just need to pretty up the art production.   Ten years ago it may have taken 4 or 5 days to do a change like that.  Today, using Flash instead of paper (the rest of this sequence was hand drawn) and cleaning up and painting Photoshop -you can make the film significantly better in a short amount of time.

This week the film goes into post-production and I'm hoping everything is smooth.  We've done several tests with Goldcrest, the post facility and everything should go well.

Hey Richard, if your Buddha film ever needs a sympathetic audience I might be able to get you a screening at Village Zendo, where I'm a member. Lemme know if you're interested.
