There was something…

Ok. Yesterday and today was full of non-3D-short related work. In fact it as so much that I almost forgot to check my inner compass and The List to select an appropriate title.

In a way this is bad because the sooner I finally finish this task I finally can start to name everything on this blog accordingly and spread the word of mouth. Well, last but not least I finally can write “*insert title here*” instead of “3D short movie project”.

This situation is really starting to be a pain in the neck. It is a situation in which I could do something yet at the same time can’t because I decided to do it this way (title first, everything else afterwards). Yet I am also glad to go this way.

The one with the list

Although you might not believe me when I say/write this now, but I have constantly been thinking about a possible title for my upcoming 3D animated short movie. Besides the “awesome” amount of other work I had to do I thought about possibilities and found (n)one. Perhaps you once had a similar problem, like naming your child (dude, that one is hard) or are about “meet” this problem very soon.

When you are a genius you of course immediately find the Awesome Title or Name you were searching for (and your child won’t curse you for). If you are not, you most likely will have to rely on a list with ideas you write down as they fly through your head. If you are good, all titles you come up with

What makes a good title?

The weeks have passed. True. True. And I still have no title for my 3D short movie I could present you.

Well, frankly spoken, it is not that bad. In other words: I might have a title, but as in the past I still want to wait some time to be truly confident.

Some might think this is too much but I believe a title of something is its essence. A title most of the time is also something with which many people learn about a new movie or short – or any other product in that matter. But what makes a goood title?

I have thought about it during the weeks and I came up with a really short list – which nevertheless makes the task of naming extremely hard:

A title needs

Although one could get the opposite impression due to some “lack” of recent updates in this blog, I in fact have worked on my 3D short project. Really. Or better: tried to work on it because I didn’t solve anything. Besides some other unsoved “things”(don’t worry, will write about them) one is the fact that I am searching for an appropriate title for my 3D short.

My goal for this 3D short is to find a title that not only fits the mood but also nails it down. And of course it should be a title that is not used that much time on the internets so the “competition” is low. As you can see, this is quite a goal I set for myself.

Well, some

Exactly one week ago I had an idea for my 3D short movie. An idea that seemed too good to be true because it almost fit everything (as you can read here).

Now this last week I had a bunch of other things to do (as also hinted by the lack of the newest 2001-Post) and I used this chance to let my feelings cool down towards this idea again – I let the initial hype go away.

And you know what? I still like the idea I had.

And you know what this means? I can finally move on! Well, not really, but I can go from the sketch phase of the story design to the actual story design process. In other words: I now can lay out all the major
