Demo #6: Giant’s Aria

Posted in Media Updates, Updates with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 9, 2012 by mbulteau

Best viewed in full screen.

After being released by accident due to Kafei’s meddling in the swamps, the giant tells the story of his fellows and why Skull Kid is the way he is.

This is a demo of a projection that would happen on a stage’s big screen, with the giant’s life-size arrival and the imagery of the story he tells.

Animation by the talented Aaron Kline.

Many, many special thanks to Mr. Donald Frank. :)

EDIT: Old video no longer available. Makeover here.

Promises… Promises can go but so far…

That’s an actual line from the Happy Mask Salesman in the opera. :P

He came in the form of fate to punch me in the face, all while keeping that grin of his.

I came here to tell you that demo #4 cannot be the trio that was promised, due to factors ranging from the constant re-recordings to make sure it’s good enough for a demo (I write some complicated melodic lines, I’m sorry) to the unfortunate fact that a singer had to drop out of the demo’s production.

However, I do like to keep to schedules, so I had a plan B: Demo #4 will instead be a short choir that got ready way sooner than we thought it would.

As for being ready on Tuesday… Well, we can’t have everything, can we?

The demo will be a simple animation, as it is too complicated to try to assemble all it needs in front of a screen as shadows, and it will serve as a (n awesome) placeholder for the music.

I don’t expect it to come later than Sunday.

Apologies again.

Meanwhile, I have corrected serious issues with act 2’s writing, and I am now struggling with Darmani with such tenacity that I’d punch him to death again if he ever crept on me, just for being such a pain.
