Here's some notes that stood out for me in the lecture today about Lecia reels. Present were Kevin Parry, Martin Sokol and Randaloph Lizardo.
About the lecias:
"Leave room for revision"
"The reel is the backbone"
"People can always add things."
"I had at least 20 copies of my lecia reel."
"See the progression of the film."
Kevin said he had his reel done in August.
Martin mused about the moral implications of a hen that can't lay egg which led to Chris discussing the importance of subtext to the film. Kevin suggested he keep the subtext purposely ambiguous so everybody could get something different from it.
"We through out PILES of boards"
"I would have done more of a pre-production package." Martin
"Always be ahead of the milestone." Randolph
"Get cracking'" Martin
"With no dialogue, it is important to concentrate on the timing and the visual structure."
"You see it evolve" again the progression.
"You'll feel good when you see your finished film."
"One head of a studio refuses to look at unfinished films"
"Have a schedule"
Do your film that "will satisfy the industry."
"the industry (I think he means the market for animation) kinda sucks these days."
