Hiya Guys!


I am in the middle of doing the ordering for the whole movie. So many scenes are complete with about 1 - 3 to do. I am so happy because all the scenes are now being exported and ordered and the movie is going to look fab. Looking for a Christmas Day release!


Thanks Guys, back to exporting and ordering!

Hiya,


Good to speak to you again! Just about to email Picture Meerkat with the last few details for the scenes that I need him to give me. This weekend, I have successfully added voices/sound to all the scenes I have. This means we have about 4 left to do - 3 which are easy for us to do and one that is Picture's fight scene. Then we will have a complete movie, ready to be ordered and released. I felt so sad about 10 minutes ago because I fitted the ending to the last scene of the movie and it just felt like the end of an era. I am so proud of what we have achieved, but the only thing is, it is really sad to be at the end of the film, after we have invested so much time into it. I have been creating movies for the last few years, this is the only one that I have successfully got near the end of and the only one I am uploading for you guys to see. 


After I have told Picture Meerkat about what I need him to do I am off to YouTube to leave loads of comments on loads of different channels that have ever done something to do with meerkats to tell them about the movie so they can subscribe to us and get ready for the movie. It is looking like we are to expect a Christmas Day release now!


Speak to you soon - am currently listening to the song that is doing the credits for us :)


Animator Meerkat! Who else?
 
 
Hiya,


Sorry, I haven't posted in a while, I know! I am desperately trying to get the movie done ASAP. I have just counted and found that nine of the scenes that need voicing have now had voice added. I am so happy that we are this close to completing it. Had a few timing issues, most scenes have been fine about it but the scientists scene required so much changing that it meant I was slightly worried. I am now NOT looking forward to seeing if there are any more scenes that will require that much change because they are awful! There is so much to change.


Oh well, that is me done for tonight, if I got another 9 done tomorrow we would nearly be done! We haven't put the mouth shapes in yet so you can tell who is talking, that is the last part of the movie to do. That will come once all the voicing has been added.


Speak to you soon... I hope!

Hi Guys,


Credits are now completed. Not much else to say. Have about 4 scenes left to do, maybe 5. Can't wait to finish it!

Hiya Guys,


I have just completed the credits for the movie. I have chosen a great pop song for the credits to the song. But I wonder why I chose something so non-related? All will be revealed in movie 2! Also, we have had a count up today, we are definitely 3/4 of the way through. Especially now I have done the credits which are nearly 5 minutes long! 


So, we only have about another 6-7 scenes left to animated. Two biggies in that 6-7. Some really small ones are also there. Then you have the average 'normal' scenes. Recording for sound is Thursday. So if you haven't asked to voice a part already. TODAY is your final opportunity. Also, am going to update the counter for the website once I finish this post. I will put it to New Years Day!


Thanks Guys!

Hi Guys,


Sorry the trailer hasn't been released right now. I estimate that we are nearly finished the movie. We only have about  more scenes to go. Maybe New Years Day is still possible. The trailer will come out soon, as soon as the lip sync for the trailer is done!


Thanks

Hiya Guys,


Picture Meerkat and I have decided to do our own company logos. I have just finished mine, it looks stunning! I might add music to it :) It is great!


Hope you like it. I will be finishing some meerkat actual scene stuff once I am sent it from Picture Meerkat, but he is busy tonight so I am just settling down to watch TV!

Hiya Guys,


Yes Wikipedia! That is the only thing with having a web address which is weebly. It is SO close to Wikipedia.com, you see every-time I type it in my address bar, wikipedia keeps coming up first and I keep clicking it by accident. AHHH annoying. On happier news, Picture Meerkat has sent me the mouth shapes for the lip sync things, now I am going to teach myself how to do it properly tonight! Oh the joys! I may practice with my animation video, yes the trailer. Hope to have it out tomorrow. I may just cut Sergei out and use someone else instead, like Edvard, because then I can lip sync right NOW!


My focus is once again on meerkats! Good news!


Right Lip Sync Time! Another scene should be done this weekend!

Hiya Guys!


Picture Meerkat and I are EXTREMELY bogged down with other work tonight so there will not be much improvements on the position of the movie. I did deliver some sound effects to Picture Meerkat earlier but as to how much time he has to do meerkat things tonight... I don't know. BUT I do know this is my meerkat time, writing a quick post to say sorry for not being able to do any tonight. 


This said, Picture Meerkat is nearly finished with his fight scene (thank meergod!) and he is going to be sending me a scene hopefully by SATURDAY NIGHT because then we could have another section of the movie out the way, the closer we are getting to finishing the better.  BUT we want it out by New Year's Day don't we? I can't see it happening we only have 5-6 weeks and we are only 1/3 done at most. PLUS, I am only going to get to start work on the voices for my trailer tomorrow night, well, if Picture Meerkat remembers to send me the mouth shapes! So I won't be really advanced enough to release it by then I don't think . What we hope to do is to release it either New Year's Day or some time in January, I think the second of the two options is possible!


Thanks again guys!

Hiya Guys!

Just finished work on a new trailer - well the visual side of things. I need to add the audio and also the lip syncing. Now, I am new to lip syncing and this is the first project I have tried it with. I am soooo hoping it works because then the film will be done quicker. 

You see, we need to perfect our lip syncing skills. So I will try to get to know it in this project. This is why I decided to have lip syncing in the trailer - it gets me ready for the horror ahead. I am REALLY worried that we don't get the movie out in time because of the lip syncing. 

FOR NEW VISITORS: THE MOVIE IS IN A SERIES OF 7!

I can't wait to hear what Picture Meerkat thinks!
