Because you’re starting from scratch, the first major set always takes the longest to build. As you work through each scene you start to accumulate props and set dressing which hopefully can be used moving forward so when it came time to rotate the blacksmith shop I was able to do it in just a few days. This is the same set wall from two weeks ago and as you can see I didn’t bother finishing it to the top. I waited until I had it on the animation table before adding the boards. I set up my camera to the widest shot I would need, made some marks and filled in what I needed. By the end of the week this scene will be done.
