Finally it's online. Last year I worked on David O'Reilly's latest Film. World Premiere was at the 67th Venice Film Festival. It was a blast working on it and I guess I'll never again animate such crazy things. Lean back get some popcorn and enjoy something unexpected.

612 Animation Play (QT H.264 6.93mb)

DONE ... I have submitted my last assignment at AnimtionMentor. The animation is done, and now it's time to make it pretty and render it. Fortunately a few friends are supporting me. The new member in the team is Manuel Macha who will do the rendering.

THANKSAt this point I want to thank all my mentors and everyone who supported me. I had a great time at AM and learned sooo much. If you want to become an animator, AM is a good place to start you journey.

The new deadline is August 1st for finishing the whole short. Let's see if we'll make it ๐Ÿ™‚

AnimationMentor Assignment 511

511 Layout V4 Play (QT H.264 4.28mb)

Sorry for the leg of posts but I'm really busy with the film and other stuff like planning my trip to the AM Graduation, Siggraph, FMX ... This is the final version of the Layout I'm still searching for music but fortunately I found someone who will help me on that. All the Cycles are mostly done only a few tweaks here and there. Today I start setting up the main scene which will be the base for all the other scenes. That's all for now hope to have more for you soon ๐Ÿ™‚

508 Layout V2 Play (QT H.264 3.16mb)

I was pretty busy the last weeks working on my short film. Yesterday I finished version 2 of the layout. Both characters got some extra rigging layer to make them more flexible. The Dad is final but I still struggle with the son's hair in terms of design.

AnimationMentor Assignment 504

504 Story Pitch Play (QT H.264 8.61mb)
Second story pitch :). The premise and the message are now locked. I went out for doing some research and I was really surprised that I found three ride-on machines out of four supermarkets ... thought it would be a lot harder to find them.

AnimationMentor Assignment 503

503 Story Pitch Play (QT H.264 18.5mb)
New term, new mentor and I'm so exited to have Chris Derochie, who is a writer as well. Class 5 is about story and the lectures were great so far. This week I had to do a video pitch ... I know I know ... animators in front of a cam ... they don't like it ;), but I decided to share it because Chris told me it was a good pitch :). Get some popcorn and enjoy ;).
