Shuzanne's Review

Trying to reach in to my head and remember all the things that happened last semester, feels like forever ago to be honest.

Working with Lynsey and Susan was excellent, I think we all worked pretty well together and I had a great time doing it. Susan's backgrounds were beautiful and I think she developed her work alot during that time and seemed to enjoy herself as well. Lynsey is a fabulous animator and I loved working with her too. It was Lynsey's idea orginally however we all helped to refine the story which worked well.

Animation wise, I learned alot. It was the first time I'd animated an animal for instance, and during development I really became interested in character design. Looking back I'm happy with the work I produced though theres definitely things I'd change about his design now simply because I know alot more than I did back then, which is a good thing!

The project was great for us to just do our own thing and try and work out how things work from different angles (some more fun than others) but it was definitely great practise personally. As there was only three of us, we did all our own clean ups which proved to be quite hard work when you're trying to animate as well.

After Christmas, I managed to colour one scene and we still have one or two scenes to clean up that we've never really got round to. I thought it would be possible at the start of semester but we've really became consumed by Veggie Pirate work and Lynsey was doing a lot of work for the Duchess.

I hope that we'd be able to finish it, like Tom said on Lava, it would be great to do some over summer here and there but it seems that its not on the top of our priority list. I'm planning on doing my dissertation over summer so I can get it out the way as much as possible so it doesnt get in the way of Pirates. It'd be way too stressful.

Overall, I really enjoyed it and learned a whole lot.
