Preperation is the guilt free Procrastination.

SPM_A0060

Over the last couple of days i have received feedback on my work for SkillSet. To help me manage my time efficiently I invented what I'm calling the 'Tear Chart'. It probably already exists but basically what it is, is all of the things i need to do, coloured and ordered according to difficulty/time and stuck on the wall with blue tack. I know, its amazing. Still, by my way of thinking, if i tear off jobs as i do them, then the workload visually doesn't look as scary!

To the left of this great invention is a chart of all of the tutorials i plan to do over the next few weeks when NOS is done. By doing this i learned that if i put both a piece of paper, and a pen attached to the wall, my girlfriend will add her own helpful, encouraging illustrations. Thanks =] it doesn't look as menacing now!

NOS Videos Disabled for the time being

Just to let any potential viewers of this blog know, i have had to privatise all of the NOS videos for the time being. They may be available soon but we shall see :)

Sound and colour test

I have been working with colour for the last few days. Today i came to a point where i was quite happy
 with how things are looking so i rendered out this test. using this as a reference i can now go back in and tweek certain things to get closer to what i want this animation to look like.
