StoryBoard (Scene 0003)

Hi folks, how are you?

I realised that I haven’t uploaded the next part of the storyboard yet.
In this page, we will enter scene number 3.
But let’s have a look:

bb_story_board_v3b

So, as you noticed, part of it is already done.
(For those who want to see preview videos, don’t miss the animation galerie here)
Anyway, I can’t wait to start scene three,
because Gaya and her father are going to show off for the first time in history *A*)!!
Finally some action.
For those of you who follow this making of for a certain time,
you will see the evolution from the test on Gaya’s kick I created a few months ago,
and the actual “awesome flying kick” she’s gonna perform for you guys^^
(Notice that the cameras are probably going to change, this board is more a guide than a real storyboard.)
By the way, scene two is over as I am writing those lines.
I changed the last plans but we’ll talk about it next week so stay tuned ^_-)

That’s it for today folks! Thanks for watching and see you next monday!!

Shin (choku?)

Hi Folks, how are you?

Today let’s simply take a look at the (進捗/ shinchoku) “progression” of scene number 2!
This is the first time you’ll see young Shin, hope you’ll like it:

Wow guys, as it goes on, I, myself can’t wait to show you the following parts! What’s wrong with me?! hahaha!
Anyway, in order to make the collision more powerfull, I am going to add more images in the plan where the camera gets closer to Shin.
By doing so, the collision will be seen two times, but fast enough so you won’t get the feeling of seeing it two times.
For those of you who don’t get what I mean… No worries! Explanations are coming next week, so stay tuned!
Or you can watch some videos of Jackie Chan explaining how he likes to cut his shots (always better to learn from the master among the masters!)

That’s it for today folks! Thanks for watching and see you next monday!!

Young Shin 3D model

Now I can use this model for any other male student.
All that I need to do is change the haircut and face, which is already done but I’ll show you this on another post XD
Alright, that’s it for the day, see you on next monday!
Thanks for watching!

StoryBoard Scene 0002 Cut 01 to 09

Hi folks, how are you?

This week we move on to the second scene (which is the first one coming after the opening).
Who said I hate storyboarding again?! Don’t remember but this person might be right (haha…)
Anyway, this is not the funiest part for me but since it’s a making of, I had to let you see a bit.

Here it goes!

Yeah I know, this is a bit hard to understand. But that’s clear for me, and as I said before,
at this step, if I’m not getting lost with my storyboard, then you don’t have to worry about a thing ^_-) v

I guess we’re done for this week.
Next week’s hint: Sound!
Thank you for watching!!

EIEN BB Scene001 Cut003 W.I.P

Hi Folks, how are you?

Today we’ re going to have a look over some plans from the third cut of the first scene.
( Wow! I’m gonna need a quicker way to talk about it hahaha)
LET’S SEE!!

This is a Work In Progress, next step is…well…sub animations like hair, small speed lines, particles and so on.
Anyway, that’s it for today, soooo,
thanks for watching and see you next week!!

Production Begins!

Hi folks how are you?

I told you last week that today’s news would be a great one,
and so I hope you’ll be happy to know that production has officialy begun!

Well I didn’t actualy finished the pre-production in terms that I haven’t finished all the 3d characters and backgrounds but I deceided to make them once they’re needed to appear in a scene.
Since it’s 3D, adding details afterwards isn’t a problem.

Anyway I prepared a little video for you guys of a work in progress, and just because I like you, some pics are following.

Have a look!

s1_c2_render_test01 s1_c2_render_test02

How was it guys?
The video you just saw contains almost all the elements that will be inside the final piece. But as you saw in the pictures coming after, I intend to add some more details in order to refine the shapes and to finish the scene. And that’s what is great about using 3D, I can add details even on the final day of the production. All it takes is a new render.

Thanks for reading and see you next week!!

Manga (pages 5 to 8)

Hi folks!

I feel like I hadn’t post since long. I don’t know why, but I am happy to finally show you the next 4 pages of the story.

For those who don’t know, this is only the first shot I gave in turning the plot into form.

Actualy the story, as it evolved to the moment, changed quiet a bit from what you will see now. But since this site is a making of, I thought I should show you where all the thing came from.

First Animatic Scene Test (pre-Opening)!!

Hey folks!!

Happy New Year!! ^^

Alright let’s begin this new year with a bit of animation.

This is an animatic test for the first scene, which is coming before the opening.
The goal was to check the timing of the animations with the voice of a character (I know, you don’t hear anything here, but I’m talking about the subtitles XD)
The voices are going to be added as soon as possible, in japanese of course. So if you have a japanese acquaintance who wants to try, let me know!

Enough with the long talk and take a look ^^

Don’t hesitate if you have any question, I’ll gladly answer it!

And as usual, thanks for reading and don’t forget to vote! ^^
