This is a test I'm doing on the side of my professional work. Its only the begining of it, hopefully the rest will be block out and animated soon.
Here is the Bar scene slightly animated for the ARMSmaster extended trailer. When I designed the image I broke it up into 3 layers to create more depth. I also played around with doing a rack focus in the shot for fun, but the video so small I'm not sure it's noticeable. I really need to sign up for that Vimeo account soon. Now we just need to get some characters in the scenes and it should bring it to life.
This is a piece a few of us Alpha Omega/ CCS Alumni are working on together. The Bar Environment I designed is for a extended version of this trailer. What we want to do for this is eventually pitch this as a TV show, fun stuff :)
This was a little experiment I've been working on when I had some free time. I been wanting to do some environments since I did the realistic photo compilations for the project I was working on with my buddy Carl. Having a landscape broken up into layers really help build depth in a image. In animation it can really help build the illusion of the z space when you pan scenes and have each moving at different speeds. I'm pretty happy with this at the moment. I think the next one I work on will be more realistic rendering, I really want to try to get into more realistic rendering illustrations.
This is a motion comic that I got a chance to work on recently. The comic/art work belongs to a friend of mine, Chris Houghton. Through Protonic Reversal, my friend Carl's company that I'm a partner in, we did this motion comic teaser trailer. It was a blast to work on it. The story and characters were fun to work with and translated well into animation. If you get a chance you should check out Chris's comics and other work, along with swinging by the Protonic Reversal website :)
This is the second motion comic job I worked on. The other one I cant show much of the work or talk about what company I did it for. Its fun working on these projects though. Its a mixer of working in Photoshop and then bringing it into After Effects, a program I know all to well. Carl and I split the work down the middle, and then he did the audio for the trailer. You should check out the Protonic Reversal youtube page to see some of the other projects that the company is working on.
UPDATE: I got 57th place out of 142th. Not bad, not good, it is what it is :). A lot of people seemed to like it and thought the TP joke was funny. There was one or two comments about acting on the fox which I agree with but I didn't have time to really change any animation after the first pass I did. I think I'm going to compete in the March competition and hopefully by then ill have a downshooter set up so I can test the animation as much as I would like to.
