I haven't worked on any animation in a week and a half thanks to my own stupidity sending me to the hospital. So I feel it's necessary to tell the world right now that there is no way my senior film is going to be done in time for the senior show.
It's just not happening. In fact, it probably won't be done by the time I graduate.
Now that I got that off my chest, I'm feeling slightly relieved, oddly enough.
This may be the first time I've ever been unable to make a deadline, but it's reasonable and completely allowable for me to say that my project will get done whenever it gets done. As an artist, I'm practicing my right to say my work isn't done until I say so.
I'm slightly less stressed out knowing that I now have the freedom to say that.
The only problems now are making sure that what I do have finished of the animation is cohesive and presentable to the audience at my senior show, and figuring out anything else I may need for the show.
Weekly updates of the Tortoise and the Hare will return next week, as well as brand new PSA animations.
I'm having a bit of trouble with my laptop.
It's been very talkative in the past 24 hours.
It sounds like the fan on it broke.
So after my fantastic time yesterday, trying to resist my urge to jump from a three story window, talking to someone who doesn't speak English on Apple Support, and completely ignoring my responsibilities due to fear of my laptop exploding, I think I'm finally ready to catch up on work again. I need to catch up on all the hours I missed putting into my projects yesterday.
I'll be venturing to the Apple store tomorrow and hopefully this fan will be fixed relatively quickly and without it costing ridiculous amounts of money. I doubt it. It is Apple we're talking about here.
Now that class is back in full force for me (for the last time), I have work unrelated to my senior film.
One assignment is to create fake PSAs called "The More You Don't Know", in which I animate celebrities giving the audience knowledge that they wish they hadn't heard.
I mentioned previously that I wanted to put my knowledge of strange or disgusting facts to use.
Looks like I'm in luck! So far Mike Tyson and Christopher Walken are slated to make appearances in my PSAs. Their voices have already bee recorded.
It will be nice to show something else off other than the constant Tortoise and the Hare updates.
