Shot List

shots 1-31. Short film "Dandy Candy" work in progress

Dandy Candy is a short film I started to help improve my 3D skills in a general sense. I designed all aspects of the film using Photoshop and Maya 2008. I modeled every asset within the film. All animated scenes were done by me using Maya 2008 or adobe premiere pro. I rigged all props and vehicles using Maya 2008. The character rigging was handled by Simon Thomas. I textured every asset myself using Maya 2008 and Photoshop.

shots 32-67 "Back at the Barnyard" -Nickelodeon

I have used shots from episodes “Iron Otis” (Oct. 6, 2009), and “King Kudd” (Oct. 7, 2009). The layout team was given one week to set up each episode. The asset department provided sets, rigged characters and props. Working with 2D storyboards I set up all cameras and compositions. I also animated all characters to provide a general sense of the scene for the director and overseas studios.

new dialogue test

video

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

100% first pass

video so I'm finally done with first pass. now I get to go back and fix things like anim problems, rigging issues and adding and subtracting story elements. I may end up altering the whole hair thing. possibly adding in a cigarette butt or a dust ball or something. also gonna fix the ring on the bag in shot 1 so that it actually has some flexibility with clusters. also gonna start work on texturing and preping for lighting.

more anim work

videos0 since I've been home sick I've spent the majority of my time either hacking up greeen crap, listening to my ipod, watching tv or working on my animation. heres an update.

COLOR CHOICES

since I have to put off animationg for a few more days I was trying to figure out what color I should use for the lolly pops. I colored each one red before, but I'm afraid it will look to much like sticks stabbed into his face. the different color choices are probably going to be limited because of what will stand out on mortys face. I may also decide to go for multiple colors........

setbacks,but still got stuff done











video

probably do more to it later,but for now it doesn't look half bad
