GRIMWAR REPORT session 003!

Hey everyone, Welcome to this 3rd session of the GRIM WAR REPORT!

Not much to speak about this week.
Everything is flowing's all good!

Jon is still doing kick-ass animations, and all that he provided for scene 3 is simply superb!

He's working on scene 4 right now, since there is a very complex shot it's a little longer but that's not a problem right now.

As for Me, I will be in Montreal on the 21st of december and the weekend after that (22, 23 )

I really wish we could schedule a meeting before Christmas so I can show you how the stuff looks once it's all integrated together!

Kyria, Do you think it could be possible to meet on the 19 december, in quebec?

I'll be working at Ubi, but I could take some time off.

Thanks for reading, don't forget to check out the blog :

I'd also like to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Take care of yourselves!


seeya next week!

GRIMWAR REPORT session 002!

Hey Everyone,
Welcome back to this 2nd edition of the GRIMWAR report.

Just before we start; thanks for the comments on last week, and don't be shy, leave some more comments on the blog:

Things are going super well.

1- Jonathan, is presently working on the first shot of scene 4.
Wich means that he animated everything from scene 2 and 3.

2- As for myself I've started writing the 2nd draft of the scenario.
I already planned everything out from start to finish (nowhere near the final version).
I don't want to spoil anything but I'll just say this ; The 2nd chapter focuses much more on the Grim clan.

And as with everything in life, if there is good, there is also a bad side.
So the Grimclan is not alone in the struggle to witness humanity's errors.
They are not only standing by the side peacfully, they are being hunted by another clan.

Like the first chapter, we will follow he evolution of war in all time eras, from the great crusades to world war 2.
The background setting will be leading us to the present time for the 3rd chapter.

What is the true purpose of the Grim clan?
How do they survive after all this time?
By who are they being hunted?

All will be answered in time!

That's all for this week! Please send me some feedback, ideas, story concepts, anything!
Thanks a lot for reading this, and see you next week!

NEXT GRIMWAR REPORT: I'll be talking a bit more about the story, production notes, intergration of the animations and a bit more about the scedule.

Until then; HAVE A GOOD ONE!

GRIMWAR REPORT session 001!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the first GRIMWAR REPORT!

These reports will be done once a week and will talk about the progress on the Film.
If you have questions, comments or anything, please send them to me and I will answer them in the next mail!

Okay, ready? let's do this!
here are the main topics:

1- I've finished all the artwork for the first clip.
There are 7 scenes overall.

2- Right now, scene one is 95% done, the first scene is quite diffrent from the rest because Jon did everything; animation, fx, camera movements, etc.
It looks very good and will start the film in a grand way!

3- Jon is presently animating all the characters and objects for the film, wich I will intergrate all together with fx, etc.
At the moment he finished scene 2 and is working on the last shots from scene 3. This technique is very fast!

4- there is no official scedule yet, but JC is working on it! we're just waiting a bit so he can be more precise on the actual deadlines.

5- I'm working on the script, I have all the key elements of the story figured out completely. Now I only have to detail the scenes and merge them together.

6- While we don't know the exact date yet, the movie is planned to be released before next summer, so sometime during spring!

that's about it! Please send me some feedback, ideas, story concepts, I take everything!
Thanks a lot for reading this, and see you next week!

NEXT GRIMWAR REPORT: I'll tell you where we are in the production and also, I'll talk a bit more about the story of the whole film!

Until then; HAVE A GOOD ONE!
