"Ke" - The Animation

Wanted to share the final version of the animation that was filmed inside the Garfield. It was filmed mostly in the downstairs living-room, and partly in the kitchen.

Setting the Stage

Construction on the Garfield was at a stand-still for the last three months, because it was being used to film a short animation. Only the living room had been used: the furniture and lighting change made all the difference! This is one of the settings created for the animation.

I am thinking of changing the curtains to something more substantial and formal. The lace was a quick and cheap solution because I did not have to take time to drape it meticulously. I will also take down the moldings I used in this room and use a thinner molding: the thick concave shape of the molding makes it difficult cut at angles, and does not meet perfectly at the corners.

Adding to the Decor

My classes are officially over now: the graduation ceremony was yesterday. I can't wait to get back to working on the Garfield. I have been buying random decoration items for the house. I was excited about these two art glass pitchers that I had won for under $4 on eBay! They finally arrived yesterday.... Aren't they just perfect?
