Survived the storm

I'm pleased to announce that Planet VFX survived the storm intact. Yes, we did lose power overnight and yes, it did stop one of Alan's machines causing it to re-boot when power came back on. But we didn't lose any data, and it only delayed something the machine was working on at the time, it didn't cause any major problems.  I think we were lucky here, other parts were not so fortunate.

Things are slowly picking up now and we are trying out new things. More on these shortly.

In the mean time, we are pleased to say that we will be attending Armadacon this year after all, up until a very short time ago it looked like we definitely wouldn't be able to go but Alan has bounced back so well that apart from a lot of weight loss, you wouldn't know he had been ill. We won't be filming, as I mentioned in the announcement on the Planet VFX website, we haven't been able to do the necessary preparation. We will though, be doing some photography so we can do the pre-viz of the film in the coming months. This probably won't involve cast members, but will concentrate on the venue so we can build a cg version. We are very happy to be at Armadacon and would like to thank everyone who has made this possible. Words just aren't enough sometimes to express feelings, and this is one of those times. The people who have helped us know who they are and should be warned they may get hugged when we see them. Hopefully, next year will see us filming. We will use the additional time to do more work and cut down the time between next year's convention and the premier of the film.

I hope you are all OK and if you were caught up in the storm, that you got through it without problems. Until next time this is Planet VFX signing off.
