And then? E então?

Posted in Announcements, Detail Library, Joana on December 31st, 2010 by dilly

Hello,

For our first product, Joana, we chose to make a 2d animation using both manual – drawing the pictures on PAPER – and digital techniques – using elements and special effects in 3D with Blender + GIMP GAP. We made this choice because:

  • We love 2d animation;
  • The story works better in 2d (semiotics);
  • We think this technique does not have good documentation using latest technologies, especially the open-source ones;
  • We are able to produce it with our own resources.

In other words it fits perfectly with the objectives of the project and its governing principles. But it is the last topic that justifies this post:

Welcome! / Sejam bem vindos!

Posted in Announcements, Committee, Detail Library on December 27th, 2010 by committee

Hello!

Welcome to the new Detail Library site.
In the right column, under “About”, you can:
Learn more about the creators of the project and its partners, more contact information, see the license used for the project and finally know the details about the project itself!
All this in English and Portuguese with the Portuguese part right after English.

Despite being implicit in the project page about our intentions, we think it best to devote the first posting on this site noting, in the simplest way we could, what it’s about the project:

The Detail Library is a virtual environment for that catalog and
allows the acces of it’s visitor to a number os stories and their
respective creative processes.

More than one short! – Mais que um curta!

Posted in Announcements, Concepts, Detail Library, Joana on September 7th, 2010 by daniel

About one year ago The Detail Library stopped being only about an animated short, and now the project involves the connection of multiple narratives. Anyway we choose to start off with animation. For that reason we antecipate the next productions. We already have the animatic for the second short and we’re working on the script for the third.

A Biblioteca de pormenores deixou de ser, à cerca de um ano agora, o projeto de um curta de animação apenas para abranger várias narrativas interligadas, no entanto, a àrea de atuação que escolhemos para iniciar o trabalho foi animação. Sendo assim, nós nos antecipamos e já preparamos o animatic completo do segundo curta da Biblioteca e atualmente estamos trabalhando no roteiro do terceiro.

Changes in Project, BlenderNation and…

Posted in Announcements, Detail Library on August 26th, 2010 by committee

We update the post about “The Project” (link also on the side) to better describe the direction the project is taking.

All this because our project was reported at BlenderNation site, to our surprise! = D
Thank you, BlenderNation, for the news. It means a lot to us!

If not for the BlenderNation putting us on the news of the day, so we would probably post something when we had something very big and important to communicate (and we have such kind of news to report, but we expect that certain things are confirmed before talking about them).

Raising funds

Posted in Announcements, Detail Library, Gadanthara, Production on May 13th, 2010 by daniel

Last month we’ve kept ourselves busy with the presentation of the the Detail Library Project in order to try and get some fundraising. One of the pieces of the presentation is a little teaser trailer. The production of a propper teaser, with the 3D models and sets would costs us a money that we don’t have (it’s a fundraising initative after all), that being said, we’ve went for an intermediary solution. We’ve cutted a teaser out of our animatic and did some make up work on it – coloring the sets and redrawing the character. It will not just help our future sponsors to visualize the project, but also have helped us to padronize the design of our main character. The following video is a compilation of some of the parts that we’ve used for the presentation, to avoid spoilers some parts have been removed. The segment of the music theme was composed by Marcio Brant specialy for the production, and as the animation, the music is only a preview and will finalized as soon as someone drops a coin in our hat.

What’s been up

Posted in Announcements, Detail Library, Uncategorized on November 25th, 2009 by damasceno

Hello there, it’s been a long time (ok, long long long time), but here we are , in order to tell you allthat’s being going on. By the end of 2008 the project went on a halt, that happened mainly because we couldn’t afford to keep working so many hours on it and still pay our bills… everybody was quite sad that we couldn’t go on working on it like we were. But our hopes were renewed by the idea of organizing the project and trying to make some money so we could pay everybody that had been working on it. At the same time, other projects appeared that demanded our attention. Some of us were trying to get a project approved at AnimaTV a government program that supports the production of animated TV series, (I’ll be back on that later) and others were studying and/working their asses off.

One thing that aways inspired us and motivated us to continue our work on the project was the comments and emails we received from people telling us what they felt about it, asking for more and basically wanting to know more about the Detail Library Project. All that kept us believing in the potential of the project. One of these people that aways made sure that we knew how much he liked our work was Mark Puttnam, from animux. So when he asked our help in creating a teaser for his upcoming project “Prince Harming to Prince Charming” we were very glad to help him out. We wouldn’t be able to be completely compromised with his hole project, but we were very excited about helping out with the teaser. It was quite a chaotic process, a global team working together to get everything done in a few weeks, in order for the teaser to be shown at sigraph 2009. A handful of talented technicians and artists each one working in a different place of the globe, it was a very interesting experience and we hope all the best for the team. As said before we couldn’t continue completely committed to the prince harming project, that was because of AnimaTV.

Here is the teaser:
