“Cauldron Bubbles” 2011 Pre Production/ Concept Development

Pre-Production for my Graduate Final Animation “Cauldron Bubbles.

For this graduate final project I worked with my Pre-Production mentor Bruce Barnes to come up and develop one of my stories I’ve been working on. I had several I wanted to see in Production but this one stood out to me because of the characters. Because of the gravity of the project Bruce thought it would be a good experience for me to create a team to help me in Production. The experience of leading a team through this production would prove to be a valuable asset when I apply for work.  I’m excited to present “Cauldron Bubbles.”

The Production Team Roster (First Team)

Edward Taylor - Director, concept and storyboard artist, layout artist, art director, lead modeler. I will also be working on some voice acting, texturing, and animation.  I will also be working on credits, rendering and compositing in post production.

Dan Trihn- Lead layout, directing assistant III, and will also animation lead.

Each of my team members I’ve worked with during the Summer Animation Project, have had a class with, or knew from reputation.  Many of them wanted to be a part of the team based off of the Pre-Production work.  I’m excited to see what we will accomplish with all of us and our combined talents.  I had decided to add members to the roster to help production move faster.
