Animation tests and script update

Ok, so i've been on holiday and had a well earned rest! I got a lot of writing done for Dan of the Dead, the whole plot summary is practically worked out.
I'm meeting up with Daz later this week to catch up on everything zombiefied. Hopefully we'll have something gruesome to post soon.
In the meantime i've been doing some animation tests with Dan, I want to get his character movements spot on so you'll see a lot more of these little tests over the next few weeks












Hope you're all hard animating! Keep checking back and please join www.danofthedead.co.uk website. Lots of new treats coming soon

Dan of the Dead update

Hi all loyal fans. Hope you're well?
I am free from the theatre I work at for 2 months!!! That's right 2 months. You know what that means?
Dan of the Dead goes back into full production.
This week I made the armature for our first Zombie. It's been sent to Daz for fabricating, he will also be adding his zombie head. Not long till you see a fully made up zombie!!! Can't wait for you all to see




Whilst at Daz's, he showed me The zombie skin he has been casting.




Ugly eh? Back at the studio I've cleared out the music video set and re-assembled the toilet set. Time to finish that off. Still a lot to do so I'll update soon.
I have decided to redo Dans hands. I was never completely satisfied with them. I am
Also looking at making silicone hands to sell on scope animations website.




Here are the hands sculpted. Before I build up the clay wall I am going to spray the hands with Crystal Clear to give it a film over the hands. This will stop me from making dints and dents in the plastercine when building up the clay wall.




I will update you more on this in the next blog.
In other news. I've been experimenting with gelatine and film blood. This is for blood splatters etc




Thats all for now. Hope you enjoy reading these blogs. More to come very soon. Keep checking and tweeting :-)
