26th April - 2nd May

Last weeks plans didn't go too well after MORE modelling problems!
Fixing the Model is going to eat into this weeks time too so that's going to have a knock on effect.

Basically, it's all going terribly wrong, and three weeks before hand in and the end of the course!

This is the Timetable I'd already planned out for the week ahead...

Monday 26th April: Make Foil base for head and add layer of Sculpey. Cut and dye fabric for model.

Tuesday 27th April: Tacking and Sewing clothes for model. Add detail to head. Make facial features (mouths). Paint models feet. Paint head and features. Recast Models arms. Tidy up feathering on edges of model.

Wednesday 28th April: Finish dressing Model (hat). Start Models Hair. Finish colouring E4 sets. Print sets, character board and storyboard.

Thursday 29th April: Finish Models Hair. Cut out Sets. Mount sets, storyboard and character board. Tidy up model with silicone solution.

Friday 30th April: WORK. Put E4 Storyboards together ready for print. Put character board together ready to print. Annotate storyboard.

Saturday 1st May: WORK.

Sunday 2nd May: Type up Research. Type up Development. Finish all sets. Finish Model. ALL READY TO ANIMATE.

I have also had to fit in the following:

*Recast model to fix air bubbles in arms.
*Tidy up edges of model and remove feathering.

Dave is going to give us a list of things to do each week so that is going to have to fit in somewhere too! goodness knows where though! I think I might have to rule out having any sleep for the next three weeks!

I also still have the following things to do, left over from last week:

*Add Fingers to band armature
*Flesh out band armature with plasticine
*Make Box for bands mould
*Start drawing up E4 sets
*Colour up E4 sets and colour in PS ready to print
*CV, cover letter , business card
*Commentaries on portfolio pieces
*Gather stuff for showreel

The one and only positive from this week; my presentation went better than I expected!
