HD The Good, the Bad, and the Bugly
This is the final (2007) version of the animation that is screening at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Sharad Kant Patel guided the whole process from writing, casting, direction of the performances, recording, mixing, animatics, and camera placement. Once he got the final frame sequence, he color corrected, added artificial shallow focus, and mixed a 5.1 sound mix for a DVD version. The total budget for this piece with paying the 3 animators, Sharad, the overhead, and the actors was less then $50,000 but with such a small team and limited resources it took a year from conception to installation.
