An early glance of Jamie Steele - the man and icon - prior to him being modeled in CG for the opening and closing sequences of the movie. Further unique developments will follow! Design by Thomas Liera.
Not posted much here lately but that doesn't mean nothing's happening beneath the surface. Still waiting for final designs that will be turned into CG models for a major part of the film of course - and here I am, getting into the 'Stanley Matthews' mood, about to start the final draft of the movie screenplay! :)
P.S. Just wanted to share a post I've just made to my Facebook page, received after this pic went out... "Now this is weird... but kind of inspiring! I just got a private email via Stan Matthewsfan where Stanley Matthews' daughter, Jean, said of these pcitures... "It's great. At first glance Tony looks like Pop!" Guess I'm getting good that this 'method animating' thing huh? (Although I wished I had half his skills and half his gentlemanly humanitarianism however!) Determined to bring nothing but honor to Stan with this film however! The world has to know how great that man was - off the field as well as on it that is!"
An own goal!
Share my journey as I make 'Spirit of the Game' for you and for everyone else around this world who wants to see again an innovative, top-quality, hand-drawn animated movie. 'Spirit of the Game' is a story for our times and one that shares core life values for those with the ears to hear and the eyes to see.
