along these years working in my proyect I see most of time was used in lot of work related but not in animate and filming puppets (thing is suposed we do). Specially, the task of building sets, making props and puppets is neverending. I think my work may be distributed so: building 60%, filming 10%, postproduction 30%.
how do you ditribute your time?
For Disappear it was about 50/50 making to animation time (4 minute film, 1 character, two locations).
I am so totally rubbish at building sets that I tend to avoid them all together. I end up creating a sense of space with lighting, depth of field, tracking, sound... Or I just shoot outdoors. Any thing to avoid building stuff.
Still, I'd say I end up spending 50% building puppets, props, %40 shooting, and %10 in post.
I see than building is a nightmare not only for me!
thanks for the answers
