Dan REALLY likes animating.
Color palate frame by Jason Walling
While the animators are slaving away on their first assigned shots, another part of the team is building the world in which Jaguar inhabits. The entire film takes place in Jaguar's home bedroom, which is adorned with artifacts from his stunt work.
Mario plays with fire as Andrea works on color schemes.
Recreating an illustrated concept environment in a CG world is a difficult task. As a result, we've dedicated alot of effort into creating every detail of Jaguar's room.

Another problem being tackled is the rigging of the various objects in the room that we require movement out of. These include things like fluttering papers, floating balloons, and swinging IV bags.
Alberto finishes up a rig for a fluttering newspaper...
...and Jason promptly tells him to redo it.
The next post will deal with some of the illustration work being done for the film, which mainly focus on detailing Jaguar's success as a stunt man. See ya later!
