Status Report

I’m adding a status report to the bottom of the home page to show how far I am on each video. One of the initial purposes of the blog is to keep me on track with video production. While I can’t yet give a certain date of when the next video will be done, I’d like you to know what phase of the process I’m on. Here’s an what the status report looks like at the time of this blog post’s writing:

A quick breakdown, on the left are the phases and on the right are the states.

The phases have to happen in sequence, except for animating and scoring, which can both happen after storyboarding:

  • Writing – this is the process of writing out the chapters. I’m actually with writing all the way to chapter four, and most of five is done. This is not a bottleneck to say the least πŸ˜„.
  • Recording – recording voice for the video.
  • Storyboarding – arranging the shots and composition for the animation.
  • Scoring – creating the soundtrack. This is done by Seedling, not me.
  • Animating – drawing, tweening, and sequencing frames.

Each phase will be displayed in one of 3 states. I believe that tasks, any tasks, can only exist in one of three states:

  • Not Started/Waiting
  • In Progress
  • Done

Here it is broken into a table for reference πŸ˜‹:

Not Being worked onBeing Worked on
Not DoneNot Started / WaitingIn Progress

I will will update the status report whenever I am ready to change the state of one of the phases.

By the way, the header image for this post is meaningless. It’s just that WordPress wouldn’t accept the image of the status report because it was too small. So I goofed out a sketch and called it a blog post.

Thanks for reading!

I am writing/illustrating the work-in-progress novel "Free Drove". I am a science fiction and animation fan. My mind latches on to trivia readily and creates it just as easily.
