Since 2013, right after I finished the production for GIRL & IT, I immediately started working on my first animated feature film THE HEART OF THEM and finally in post-production since last year (well, almost two years). We're almost there! But the question is, what's taking so long?


The thing is THE HEART OF THEM actually was 80% completed last year but I was not satisfied or even proud of both the animation and the art style. I made the hard decision to reset the animation production with better and more unique art style and animation. I've been testing this new animation technique for straight 4 months and honestly, this new technique I've been experimenting is making animation process for each scene much faster than the older version.


Believe it or not, the stills you see below are made with Adobe Animate CC (for animation) with Adobe After Effects CC (for colors, visual effects and few others) and Adobe Premiere CC (for final cut). It's still early, which explains the lack of actual art background, for I'm currently working on characters' animations before working on other things surrounding them.

I wish I could go back in time and started with this workflow. Makes my life so much easier.


Right now I've selected scenes I want to finish them for the upcoming trailer I have yet to announcement but all I can say is expect it maybe before September. As for when exactly will I finish the movie, I honestly can't answer that but with this workflow, hopefully before or little bit later after the New Year's Eve but my main plan is to finish the project for 2020 and 2021's film festivals (I'm looking at you, Toronto International Film Festival 2020).


Stay tuned and also please do message me if you have any question(s).


Thank you for understanding.


Regards,

Mohammad Ahmed Fikree

Hi!

So what have I been up to? Been working on my animated feature-length, of course. But I've been quiet, been very busy. Two months ago, I got married and I tried to adjust my life style with my wife. The good news is that all are sorted out and I can continue working on the project. I’m glad that my wife supports me on what I’m doing, in fact, she’s pretty much excited for the movie to be completed, so there’s that.

Like I mentioned before, I expect to finish the movie this year, but I doubt it’ll go world premiere at film festival this year, for the production’s ending will pass the deadline for submission. If I am to delay, it’s actually a good thing, because it’ll give me more time to polish and more importantly do some private screenings for feedback before it’ll go for film festivals around the world.

Below you can find two stills from the finalized version. Unlike from the concept trailers, the finalized version will feature proper facial expressions, better cinematography, appropriate uses of colors and many things that are based on feedback from my previous animated shorts like ATLARTOR: GIRL & IT and CHILDREN.

The trailer should be ready by July, but will update youif anything changes.
