Today, I have been working on some animation for a shot with some CG elements. For this particular shot, Nishio-san, one of the key animators for the film I am assigned to, handed me a series of key animation drawings of a grenade falling down the stairs. Actually I am really enjoying working this way because I feel it gives me a chance to learn the timings of the traditional Japanese animators at the studio. I hope I get more shots like this in the future!
I am still recovering a bit from the flu that hit me a while ago, so I feel a little tired. My two other co-workers were hit by the flu as well and both didnt show up for work yesterday. Since the offices are really small, its like a game of viral dominos.
A few days ago, I told my seisaku staff (Inoue-san) that I was ready to show an animation test for my grenade shot for approval. Later that day, a big group of people came by including Nishio-san (supervising animator,) Nishikubo-san (sequence director), Yusa-san (color supervisor), among others. To be honest, I wasnt expecting so many people to show up for just an animation test. I wonder if they were expecting something different. Anyhow, they seemed to like the animation and gave me some comments for things to work on.
