A few months on from the end of filming and editing, the film its way to festivals and to help aid it in its travels a brand spanking new trailer for your lucky lucky eyes!
Due to the university summer break, are access to our normal studio space and animation facilities have been closed from may through to September. So we've taken up residence in a local stop-motion studio, who very kindly has offered us space throughout the summer to help us get ready for filming in September. With a mammoth amount still to do for sets, props and puppets for the film, this was a real life saver and hugely appreciated.
We were also really very lucky in the fact that an old contact of mine - Wes Wood at animation toolkit has offered to supply us with materials to help us make the film. We now have everything we need to make the best quality puppets, sets, a props we possible can. All supplied form his online shop at http://www.animationtoolkit.co.uk.
This teamed with the very knowledgable, friendly and kind model makers/animtors at the studio were staying with- which will enable us to make Brois-Noris the best it possibly can be!
I'd like to start this whole thing of by expelling the name behind the film. This film was initially thought up over tow years ago in one way or another and was originally going to be called 'Drift' due to the main characters being scavengers and based of a real life set of twins based in my home down of Portland, UK- who where known for collecting drift wood, and having house filled to the rafters with the stuff.
After the film whent on a big roundabout trip becoming a much deeper more poetic film about brothers and loneliness, I realised that this isn't what I wanted to make, this wasn't the film I intended it to be. So, after making a rather huge change and developing the film into something far more bunchier, faster and al together more comical I decided the name 'Drift' no longer really fit, it seemed to reflective and elegant for this film.
I wanted something bunchy, more in keeping with the new film, but that still reflected it's roots. As the film was about a Dorset duo, who speak a mixture of noises words and noises, that sort of represent the people of my home town, I looked into Dorset words that would represent my films aim, here where the runners up:
This will be the blog for the duration of my new stop-motion film 'BORIS-NORIS' like previous films I will probably build this thing up with good intentions and grand plans, update it three or four time and then revert to my old blog over on blogger (which is here if your interested) . However for now this is where i'll be updating form, mission control for a film in motion in a general respect. The film has already undergone a lot of transformation and i'm starting this blog at a time when - I hope - things have settled and any changes will be small. however there is still a lot to do, pretty much all the making is still be done, as we've been humming and aching over small alteration to the puppet the set for a while now, but with deadlines looming we hope to get stuck in very soon. I say way we not out of some weird third person grammar thing but as in my team, although at the moment a majority of the film is solely my own, i do have assistance on hand to help with the making and design of sermon elements. For now I will busy my self by updating thing of interest that are not being used anymore or will be be in some small way, but will hopefully give a you a better feeling of how this film is to be made, the ups and downs of production and hopefully its life after completion. See you soon!
This is a space for development work of my grad film BORIS-NORIS. A slap stick stop-motion film about NOT sharing.
