The final shots I have left to animate were the hardest. I had to animate in kind of slow-motion, make appropriate environments and do a very basic rig on the character. It wasn't that those were that hard to do but I wasn't sure if they would end up looking too differ...

 The cave scenes need to look quite different and Casey and I have been working on a the colour of the backgrounds which both ties the cave to the rest of the film and distinguishes it as a kind of sub-space. I've also been thinking about the differences in texture in...

There are a lot of different locations in the story but the mountain is essentially the overworld map of Poi's adventure, containing all the different spaces within itself in a way. 

In the story, the mountain is the most consistent location, used to tie the story toget...
