We are just two weeks away until we end our mad dash to launch the software that’s powering The Animation Academy’s online program. Here’s a video podcast that shows what we’ve been doing over the past 3 months (and the coding prior that led up to it), using Gource, a very neat commit log visualization program.
Discussing other people’s work is something we do quite a lot as an exercise in story writing. An important aspect of this exercise is to discuss what works, in addition to what doesn’t, and to try and come up with solutions to those problems.
This week we wanted to experiment a bit, so we decided to do a podcast this week. We talk about keeping a production journal (which is part of what this podcast is, it’s a record of where we are at right now), some of our current theories about story, and our process.
