The Producer’s Report #102 – Feelin’ Satisfied
Feb 2010 07

Here’s Josh Truax as Nebraska Higgins looking like he owns the world during his interrogation by Joint Command Officers. We are feeling some of that same smugitude as we close in on finishing the estimated VFX list, and that will basically happen this week. Pretty cool. Next, we are working on a revision to the opening reel that will constitute a new animated sequence concocted by Ian and Nate Tayler to quickly introduce our audience to the world and characters of Project London.

The team assembled to work on this new sequence include Benjamin Bailey, Nate Taylor, and perhaps a couple more new guys.

The producers are “over the moon” about the amazing Jerry toss that Ian talked about in one of his previous blog posts (Digital Doubles). Today we saw it rendered for the first time. Jerry jumps from the Goose while in flight and lands on the face of Subject C, where he immediately begins to wrestle this gargantuan monster. Nate Taylor is the man.

Status of Visual Effects (VFX) Shots:

  • Number remaining: 4!!! (LESS THAN 10 Ayeee!!)
  • Number in progress: 4
  • Number completed: 618
  • Percentage remaining: 0.6% Wow! Less than 1%!!! (After next week, we will talk about things other than VFX!)
  • Total VFX: 650 (a bunch were completed before we started tracking them)

Doom: Three years of our lives! (calculated by Ian)

Projected date for completion of all VFX:

  • 13 February 2010 (based on projected time estimates of all tasks)
  • 13 February 2010 (based on spreadsheet items completed per week)

This week’s recommendations:

  • Ian: “Memorizing a few constellations” (for the ladies) or (for the guys).
  • Nate: “The Flower Duet” from the opera, Lakme by Delibes.
  • Phil: “8.5 x 11″
