There has been a couple of issues that have come up for me this week. First off The phoenix is taking much longer than I had initially anticipated and while done and good enough is certainly better than perfect. I still have to get it to good enough. And painted. I am aiming for this week to have it done. Since I have never made a puppet this large or ever, I have delayed scheduling the rest of the short film until I can get this Phoenix done. Whew I have a lot of work to do. Secondly I was watching Wag the Dog earlier this week and I was very captivated by the collaborative spirit depicted in the movie. I have been stuck in my apartment bubble lately, building this thing and I am missing the collaborative effort brought in by other people. I have to fix that.
