I gotta wake up SUPER early tomorrow morning to bring somebody to the airport, so instead of sleeping for barely a few hours, I’m gonna stay up all night and finish animating my Christmas short! It’s nearly done, all I need to do is animate some replacement mouths, compile it together, do some sound editing and VOILA!
I’ll probably do the heavy-duty sound editing stuff tomorrow night, but tonight I’m just gonna focus on the nitty-gritty. I might even stream for that last little stretch. So if anybody wants to join in later and shoot the breeze, listen to some tunes and watch me finish up shop on this thing, reply to this post or something. I still don’t know how Tumblr works, so…
Record voice for character in short; Get nothing…
Four tries later; get frustrated; give up recording
Look for public domain Christmas carols to use in lieu of my voice; find nothing; use Burl Ives and Frank Sinatra recordings instead
Have second thoughts; worry about copyright issues for Youtube; try recording again
Think I got right voice; tries recording; messes up constantly; gets too late to record
Uses Burl Ives recordings again; gets frustrated
