Topic: Professor Sludgery and Hewlett in: Mary & Mode - Production Topic

Ever since THAC earlier this year I've been wanting to do more with the characters that I created for my entry, The Document Dimension. After having a sudden burst of inspiration on Valentine's Day and writing it on-and-off since March, I've finally begun production on my next brickfilm: Professor Sludgery and Hewlett in: Mary & Mode.

The plot involves a bit of a romantic discourse for Hewlett as he hits it off with a girl from the library after being sent there to fetch a book for the Professor. It'll be quite a bit different compared to the films I've made before, but it's become sort of like a passion project amidst this hobby which I'm already passionate about and I'm really excited to finally be working on it.

I have no idea how long it'll be. I've already kind of thrown myself a for loop because the opening scene in itself is longer than the entirety of The Document Dimension. Speaking of the opening scene, I'm nearly finished animating it. Here are a few frames with some temporary cropping and color correcting that I did just to see how they'd look.

I really like the lighting in these shots.
Can't wait to see more progress!

Thanks!

As for an update: I've finished animating the first scene and will move onto filming the rest of the lab scenes shortly. In the meantime, I posted a casting call for Mary on that part of the forums: http://www.bricksinmotion.com/forums/po … 1/#p370621
