Back to Work on Crawler Starting in May
I know a lot of folks--cast and crew, as well as Timewarp fans--have been wondering when (and if) it would ever be finished. Well, the FX will be completed, and I'm shooting for the end of this year.
A lot of work has has already been done, and some FX are in the can. But one thing I plan to do is rework the look of the creature. While Don and Joe were okay with it, I was never completely satisfied. And I think now that my skills have improved and the tools available are simply amazing (I'll be using the current version of ZBrush--check out the mind-blowing gallery), I want to go for something that will WOW people. Don always said that the creature would make of break the movie, and I don't want to let him down.
Over the last few months, in addition to finishing Sealed Fates, I've been ramping up my CG skills to get ready. I hope to have the new Crawler ready by sometime in June, then fully rigged to animate by August. That leaves several months to do the rest.
I plan to post updates as much as possible with stills, clips, etc. So, stay tuned.
