After months of work including over 400 hours of CGI and compositing, thousands of photoshop layers, 6 days of photography in the UK and USA, almost a terabyte of photoshop and CGI data and endless late nights our children’s book “Emmy and the Whale” is nearing completion. The book documents a young girls fantastical adventure with a lost baby whale and the beautiful yet mysterious places they visit on their journey. This has been the ultimate creative journey for both myself and the books author and creative director, Julian Burrett. From a technical standpoint this has been the most challenging project I have ever undertaken but I think the results are well worth it. The final art is nearing completion and we expect to have the book printed by end of May. I have to thank my wife Lisa ( www.Lisaclor.com )for her unending support as well as her efforts with styling and putting up with the countless hours I’ve spent on this and of course Nina who brilliantly plays the role of “Emmy”. Here is a sneak peek at the cover. I will post more as the project nears completion. We will also document the “making of” for those interested in how we achieved the imagery and make this available in a few weeks.
