Well… it’s official.  I came to a decision on my crazy idea… so I’ve gone and registered a team for this year’s 48 Hour Film Project in Richmond… and we’ll be producing an animation.  I’m trying to assemble the team now.  We’ve got a strong core, but with how much work is going to be involved with this, I certainly hope we get some more help.

Some things I know for sure:

  • We’ll be using Blender pretty heavily as our production tool.
  • There will be some substantial pre-production going on and perhaps a test run.
  • When the project is complete, I want to release the production files under a permissive Creative Commons license (still verifying that this is possible with the 48 Hour Film Festival people).
  • It’s not likely that I’ll be sleeping very much that weekend.

Of course, I’m not sure whether or not we’ll be successful at completing the animation, but I believe we can do it and I’m totally up for the challenge of trying.  At the very least, we’ll find out just how good we all are.

Oh, and the actual screening of the completed films is scheduled to take place at the Byrd Theater on July 26th.  You should all make it point to come out for that.
