Yes, you heard me right. It’s nearly done. Now before you get too excited, keep in mind it’s been “nearly done” for a long time now. However, this time it’s actually really close. There is a small amount of VFX work left (one spell effect and some environment lighting), and then it’s just about finishing the sound effects and music.
I hope it will be done this month. That is definitely possible. Whether it happens or not, we’ll see. But I’m going to try. It’s been over two years working on this thing and I just want it finished. Judging from this blog post though, I seem to be procrastinating by talking about it, rather than just doing it.
Also after all the hooplah with the new Star Wars movie, we’re in the mood to make a (hopefully less VFX-heavy) short film with lightsabers and lasers and pew pew pew! Hopefully that will motivate us to get this one done as quickly as possible, though it will likely be a little while before we get the next short done (let alone started). It will probably also be a more expensive endeavour, but could be really cool.
