Transcription: Project Pipeline

Before I start this project, I wanted to create a pipeline to better guide in this 10 weeks, So I have exact idea of the steps I have to overcome to get this project done in time. Alongside the pipeline, I have also created a time table which will tell me when each processes from pre-production right through post- production is due,  this will allow me to better manage my time hopefully.

So based on my chosen idea, 'The Music of Eric Zahn' by HP Lovecraft I aim to create a 2-3 minutes animation transcribing the story. With some help I began to understand what stages I have to go through and how long I will allow myself to do them.
