So I decided I really need to finish a short on my own. The quicker the better. I've spent much too long toiling over Mel, and without finishing there's just not enough satisfaction. Small victories are what it's all about. I'm putting together this El Cheapo short (about 1 minute), which I plan to have finished by the end of the day (realistically it might take a couple more). The sound is from some takes I did a little while ago, that I always thought could be fun to animate. If I like the way this one turns out, I'll do a couple more planning to spend no more then a day or two on any one of them. I just finished separating out the elements. Now on to After Effects for the fun part.
