Working alone, one of the hardest things to maintain is a high standard of quality. As the weeks and months start to drag on you can sometimes find yourself letting things slide. Before I sign off on any shot I always asked myself; is that the best that shot can be or is it only as good as it needs to be. I strive for the former but there have been days when I’ve settled for the latter. Those days always come back to haunt me. There are half a dozen shots in FILTH that to this day I cringe when I see. I’ve done better on FROM HELL HE RIDES but it doesn’t come easy. I’m usually a first take animator but twice in the last week I’ve done 4 takes of a shot. It has reduced my shot totals for the week to be sure but a year from now I won’t be shaking my head thinking I should’ve shot that again.
