I spend most of my time either in the workshop or at the animation table but for the past month I’ve been chained to my desk, working on storyboards, cutting the animatic, recording voices and laying out the production/shooting schedule for how I plan to attack this film. I now know that IT CAME FROM BEYOND THE DRAIN will run 9 min. 30 sec., that there are 4 major sets and a couple of minor ones, and that there will be about 300 shots. The logistics that go into making a film like this can’t be left to chance. It’s certainly not as interesting as building stuff but the work I put in now will keep me from losing my sanity 6 months down the line.
