“Sterling,” was put on a much deserved break after some frantic months of non stop animating. Myself and the other animators now emotionally involved in this project needed some time to consider the direction of the film. Division remains on whether or not to have a linear story or to go for a more abstract artistic approach. While time doesn’t necessarily allow it, I find it is often necessary to return to the boards and make new ones. I see holes in this story that I want to convey and illicit an emotional response, but we’re not quite there yet.
