KAPTARA final dub

November 04, 2012

Image

After working on one of my favourite projects to-date for over a year, I'm very excited to see it all come together at the final 5.1 dub mix. I've seen it come from script, to storyboard, to small grey puppets floating around, to small blue people with no hair but walking, to a final spectacular colour render. The score was written in its entirety before any colour, texture, backgrounds or costume were added, so to see it come together is especially gratifying for me. Well done Mindseye Studios!

I was lucky enough to have a team from Studio Bottlecapgun follow me on this journey, and a behind-the-scenes featurette will be posted in the coming months.
