Things are moving along at a slow but sure pace. There is still some sort of mental equilibrium that I am chasing after but I think I'll get there soon. It's a whole new challenge when you are working on your own film, your own idea. I feel so spoiled to say this but I MISS having a crew around to do things for me. If I had a puppet/set/lighting problem in the past I just took it to the experts I worked with and said FIX THIS PLEASE. And fix it they did. I have been incredibly fortunate to have worked with so many amazing knowledgable people, and let me tell you I am really missing them. Now when I have a problem to work through with my puppet/set/lighting its all on me to fix it. And don't get me wrong, I'm loving the chance to learn all this great stuff, and yes I am have wild fun doing it. But I know myself and when it comes right down to it there is just nothing in the world I love more than animating. Building is fun, storyboarding and drawing are fun. I love it, it's great. But it doesn't compare to animating. And I miss animating. I suppose its just frustrating that every time I have a setback and can't move forward I am the only one who is accountable for that. Anyways, you know what they say: Anything worth doing isn't easy!
Forward I go.
