And into our third year on the film that wouldn’t die. Ironically.
I’ve spent much of the last two days drawing hold-out mattes round shots of Andy. To avoid zombification during this process, I listened to DVD commentaries whilst doing it. Yesterday I made it through all three commentaries on Pirates of the Carribean and today it was El Mariachi and Bad Boys. If anyone’s interested, by far the best was Jack Davenport and Kiera Knightley’s commentary on Pirates – almost as entertaining as the film itself.
My camera came back today (turned out it was the fourth time they’d tried to deliver it – they’d been going to the wrong building). As before, it appears to be working fine, but as we all know by now that means jack.
I’m about to start animating a scrumpled up piece of paper. Trust me, it’s ingenious. Drink up, me hearties, yo ho.
