Red Part 1

Into to Red completed for this years university hand in, sang by Heg Doughty. I am to go back over it again next year and add other elements to the forest like growing vines and more dynamic camera movements. I also aim to create little red and the wolf in full CG. Happy Christmas, the wolf is coming!

Red Book Cover

This week is hand in week for university, before we break up for Christmas. My computer will be rendering for the next 22hours (according to my maths) then a few hours tweeking, compositing and all should be well for the hand in on Friday. Until then here's one of the full HD1080 frames. Enjoy

Red - Preview

I rendered out a full test of the opening to the song at low res. I’m going to continue to play with the lighting as I’m getting some glare on the table. Also thinking about adding some more props inside the book, like some grass or a path texture on the pages. The book cover and plaque on the wall need texturing correctly too.  The video is 640x360 and better quality without maximising. :)

Dream Home - Advanced Lighting and Modelling Module

Work from earlier on this year for an advanced lighting and modelling module. I wanted to create a house that I would dream to live in, possibly set in Canada or some other wonderful place. I set up the render cam from the beginning, created the house, textured the parts that would be in shot and lit the scene. I then created a depth and ambient occlusion pass which was composited later in Photoshop. Finally I key framed parts of the house being made to give an idea on how this was created.

The most rewarding thing about creating this house was seeing it come to life in the final render.
