SynaesthesiaHere is the schedule that I have come up with for the Synaesthesia project, which I joined as an Animator on the 12th April 2012. So far, I have 10 shots to do in only seven weeks, so I need to plan each stage carefully and efficiently.
This should give us 3 weeks to focus compositing and editing. We intend to render out each shot as and when they are completed.
Cat and Rat (now abandoned)Here is the schedule that I came up with for the project, Cat and Rat: The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac, along with all the necessary deadlines. I organised it so that it fit with every other team member's schedule. Unfortunately, this project has since been abandoned due to the large number of technical issues that we encountered and that hindered our progress.
