Narration Recording with Robin Browne

This Saturday the wonderful Robin Browne paid us a visit to lend his voice to our BB animation. Robin is an actor from London and importantly was the narrator for the BB audio books.  He has a fantastic voice which is perfect for the gnomey narrator of our film.  I want to say a big thanks to Andy E, Ryan and Ash for their help on the day and setting everything up so we could achieve the best recording possible. I have been listening to the results this afternoon and they sound great! Now I just can't wait to lay the tracks down on our next animatic.  :)

1st Week of 2012

So the first week of 2012 has whizzed by and we are now 15 weekends away from the BB Animation screening.  This will be happening on the 28th April in the lovely Northamptonshire woodland.  More details to follow over the next couple of months.

This week has been very busy with everyone getting into the swing of things after the Christmas break.  We have welcomed some new animators onto the project.  Hello to Filip, Chloe and Alex! A schedule of all the remaining shots has been set up taking the animation production into March.  We have been using the amazing Trello to help get us organised.  (It is the best!)

This weekend also saw us testing the equipment and space for audio recording in preparation for the narrator travelling up next week.  We had lots of fun playing with the microphone and Ryan did a good job at test reading the gnomes lines.  We managed to get some nice recordings so looking forward to getting the final narration sorted.

This is all for now.  I will update again when I have a chance.  Now it is time to get back into Flash. :)
