Things to do for Passenger for next quarter

We talked about alot of things today. What we're going to do for next quarter, marketing, Dam short film festival, skype, and post work.

We're planning on finishing this next quarter so we've got alot of work to do but we can do it!

As far as marketing goes we talked about making posters, teaser trailers, and postcards and stickers.

We made a schedule plan for the first two weeks of the quarter which I'll be posting down below.

Since we might have conflicting schedules next quarter and we might not be able to meet each other in person all the time we could do skype meetings. We'll all have to sign up for skype however.

Also, I made the blog available so that everyone can post now and not just me. I didn't know how to do it before so now you guys have access to it and can put up new posts whenever you need to fill us in on something.

Weekly schedule (up to two weeks in to the next quarter)

End of Week 1:

Christa: Have Adam rig done
Steven: Have another computer screen finished
Emi: Work on textures
Livi: Animation rough

End of week 2:

Christa: Have rig fully done (if not finished by week 1) and have some rough animation
Emi: Work on some posters and rough animation
Steven: Do visual FX tests
Livi: Rough animation and maybe storyboards for teaser trailers.

If any of this you think would clash with your class work, Livi and Steven, make sure to let me know and we can work around it.

Environment notes:
- Do lighting tests
- Do nebula tests
- Do steam tests

Assigned scenes and model list

So here is everbody's assigned scenes for next quarter once we start animating. I'm putting up the time code from the storyboard on Vimeo so make sure to scrub through it to find your scenes.

Emi- :46-:48, :49-:51, Opening scene 00:00

Steven- :56-:57, compositing aspects

Olivia- :03-:08, Long walk scene, 1:02-1:03

Christa- :31-:35, :36-:46, 1:06-1:08

Over the break, I'm hoping we can finish all the modeling and textures as well as have some basic lighting blocked in. I'll see if I can work on the lighting if I can get my computer to cooperate with me. I'll also set up a master folder once all the models are finished. So hopefully we'll just have to worry about the animation for next quarter. The goal is to have it finished by week 6.

Here is a model list so far. The ones that are in bold are the models that are pretty much finished:

Large Ship
Small ship

Room 1
Room 2

Also here is the live action ref footage that Livi put together for us. Thanks Livi!

Okie doke here's the awesome storyboard by Olivia! With sound and everything.

I tried to compress the video files we gathered today and upload them to megaupload but it was just too huge. If you need the video folder try to hunt me down at school I'm there pretty much everyday.
