A Behind-the-scenes video of Hall for Cornwall’s 'Open Public Day' where they showed everyone the renovation progress. Hall for Cornwall will be re-opening in Autumn 2020.
I took on the role of a producer for this graduate film. I had some experience with producing, but never to this big scale. I worked very closely with my director Prawta Annez to make sure the project was on track and to keep everything on schedule. During the first weeks of the project, the crew kept growing and by the end of it, there were 25 people actively working on the film. I learned a lot about team management and how to work with a pipeline. We started animating earlier than expected, which put us ahead of schedule and gave us more freedom to experiment and have fun with the fight sequence. We did encounter some problems as explained in the timeline.
We had some issues with crew members not doing work, technical issue and losing a few days due to snow. As we progressed through animation, I quickly learned what the crew members were good at, some of them were better at subtle movements and other with bigger ones. This sped up the production of shots, as the team were more secure and happy with what they were doing. The colourists especially, improved so much over time, getting used to the complicated painted style of colouring for the film.
