Been up the last 26 hours studying trawling boats, winches, what part of the mast ropes are fastened to (blah blah). Its funny being an animator you sometimes have to learn the weirdest stuff, how it moves looks etc.
Going over videos of some guys on the high seas with waves bigger than houses - man are they off their nut! I am gonna appreciate the next piece of sushi.
The current shot I have is of a trawling boat, so when I do the shot I want it to be slightly believable. Of course I'm gonna break the visual rules (hey its animation) but its good to know what rules I am breaking.
