There appears to be a bit of confusion about the title of our short film. We’re partly the reason for this confusion, because we sort of have four titles at the moment…
- « Potato Movie Project » was the code word for our short film. We were waiting until we had a story and were in production before we decided on a final title. The choice of Potato as a codeword is explained in the « About » section up top.
- « Warning Haunted » is going to be the first title that’s seen in the film. We like the setup because it’s two strong words, and the domain was available.
- The « Warning » part of the title will then disappear, leaving « Haunted » all alone. This is the final, sort of official original title. It’s there because we also wanted ONE word to describe the film… but « Warning »‘ just felt strange to us.
- … then there’s a fourth title that you’ll see when you watch the finished film.
Basically, the film has three sort of official titles. But feel free to call it « Warning Haunted » as that’s pretty much the one we’re using.
I don’t like leaving a blog post without a picture or something new. If you’re over here, it’s to see images of how we’re getting on, not to see endless blabber. I will therefore leave you with a few BRAND NEW screenshots of our WIP Bunny rig! It’s EXTREMELY simple, this sort of character not really needing 300 controllers (you could, but seeing as we’re modelling, rigging and animating, we don’t have an animator who’s going to complain that he needs to go into the bone structure to make new controllers when necessary). We also don’t want to limit our creativity too much so we’re opting for a barebones spartan formula which can be tweaked at any time if we feel there’s something new that needs to be added.
Thanks for reading!
