As I work through the final days of mixing, watching the film over and over I’m reminded of how difficult the animation process was for this film. There were a number of reasons for this (which I will not go into here) but I remember becoming seriously frustrated by it all on several occasions. Not exactly the frame of mind you want to be in when you’re animating. It can really sour the whole process if you let it get to you but you have to take the long view. The overall quality of the animation in FROM HELL HE RIDES is, I believe, the best I’ve ever done and those difficult days seem distant and irrelevant today.
