Muscles, short film and other stuff

I wrote the final version of the script about 3 weeks ago. I’m currently working on the shot list, defining framing and camera angles for the whole thing.

The film is also about experimenting, as always. Since I am also the “so called creature TD” (heh), I decided to use muscle systems to drive the characters’ skin. I tried contraction and expansion, as well as jiggling (mostly for the breasts). It all worked out pretty much as I expected… the sliding not too much as the skin kinda explodes on the elbow area…

The weird skin thing is not shown on the video, but you can see an image showing the problem below:

I still can’t decide if I should use muscles to drive the whole skin or just parts of it. Well, I still have one month to decide according the the schedule :p

There are other things I plan for the short film but I can’t talk about them right now, so you’ll have to wait a little 🙂

I can at least share what the film is about, though:

Aisling is a girl living in a fantasy world, something she created inside her mind, and she’s been living there for so long that she can’t tell the difference between the real world and the fantasy world anymore.
