Test Village

As previously mentioned, we're working the signal film for this year's Ottawa Animation Festival.

Since we like to needlessly complicate things, this is shaping up more like a signal cycle.

For the third installment, we're thinking an environment like this.

These are the first models.  Eventually a whole city will be constructed.

There was a time when I'd insist on hiding the edges.

Today, edges don't bother me.  Not that it should look sloppy (there are a few sloppy folds in some of the buildings), but it should look attainable.

The film as a whole should be magical, should come together in seemingly impossible ways.  The elements which comprise the film -whether it's animation, actors, music, photography -don't need to be perfect.  In fact, it's may be more effective if somewhat rustic parts work together to create a piece greater than its sum components.
