Prairie Dog

And so Grad Film development is now fully underway. I won't be able to post much about the film itself just yet as I don't want to spoil it, plus it's already undergone several major changes so anything I write about is likely to change. However, I will try to post sketches throughout the production and so first up, prairie dogs. I came across a documentary on them whilst researching for animal calling sounds; apparently prairie dogs have an intricate language of 'chirps' for different predators. So not only did I get to draw loads of them I also learnt the difference between the chirp for a badger and the chirp for a coyote!
