At the moment I am aiming at an animated Short Film. Followed by a graphic novel. And then let's see what else can come out. It's set in a dystopian city, involves bagheads and some other 'creatures' :) [b]Status Number:[/b] 2 [b]Team Members:[/b] 2 [b]Start Date :[/b] Mid 2010. But it's been mostly off until Summer 2012. [b]Estimated Completion Date :[/b] February 2014 (Short Film) [b]What went right this week:[/b] Started working on the look. Finalized the script (about 80%) [b]What went wrong this week:[/b] I could have been faster. System temporarily broke down. 2 days wasted. [b]Show & Tell :[/b] Testing the overall look of the film.

The primary reason is definitely the resources. Photo-realistic renders require way too much work and resources, without adding a whole lot to the film in terms of story. Second reason is to achieve seamless look between the graphic novel & the short film. It can't be 100% but I will try. Here is a quick render test.
