View Full Version : 3D animated short film

I'm a professional 3D animator in search of other talents to work on a short film. I have a script and some rough concept sketches to work from. I'm a game developer and have worked on numerous triple 'A' titles that sold zillions of copies. I'm very well connected and there's good chance our group work can be picked up by a huge company.
______
here's the basic premise of the project:
Style: Southpark/Simpson's humor, meshed together with Gorillaz style art and animation (but more realistic).
Age spectrum: Primarily, the cast consists of high school seniors, college students and college grads, but not limited to.
Content: explicit language, partial nudity, mild violence

very cool. what do you do?
I forgot to add 'animator' to the list of peeps that's needed.

FeCyril

Well not much concerning the actual 3d work.
I am a choreographer so what I do is make a storyboard of the action sequence so that an animator can work from it.

I use maya so I plan out the sequence and import a few characters(usually models from the short itself...not dummies) and pose them as the action is supposed to go and make renders of the poses,add description for the speed and the posture of the body or velocity of a hit etc.That I kinda write as a storyboard so that is what I pass on to the animator and he works with that.Usually I like to keep in touch throughout the whole production so its not just that i give you pointers and leave you be.I like to make sure things look as I have them in my head so I basicly work with animators till the final render.

I know its not much help because I am not a modeler nor an animator but if you need help with action I can help out:thumbsup:

Well,i've been lurking around here every now and then,and i would offer my assistance.
For the past 6/7 years i've been modeling 3dsmax/CAD,hardedge/polygonal and spline/nurbs.
I've been participating in several mod-teams,aswell as leading one.
For the most part doing military vehicles,weapons,and architecture.Also experienced in environment development ,leveldesign,and texturing(handpainted aswell as production)
Currently im working on a total conversion mod for Crysis named 28-months-later,as a 3d Modeler/Texturer.
http://www.moddb.com/mods/28-months-later
In the past i've worked on several game engines (all UT engines,Ogre,Falcon Engine,BF- engine,and the Cryengines)
For me now the time has come to get serious about this,and this would be a good opportunity.
Currently my portfolio site is under construction,due to switching ISP,but i can pm you some work if you want.(Hopefully the site is up and running again by the end of the week..)

I am a very dedicated designer,who can work well under pressure,work on multiple tasks in a deadline determined environment.I can work well in a team,aswell as an individual.I am also capable of putting concepts into reality.

Sincerely,

Bjorn Seinstra

excellent! I have a few rough, stories that you can help me out with. I can also give you a rudimentary Maya setup (with boxes) that I can forward to your very soon and we can get this rolling.

I still need more staff. I'm in dire need of a talented character modelers and concept artists. I've proposed a good friend of mine to lend a hand on the concept department. Partial audio has been recorded and I'll be setting up dummy objects in maya very soon. The ball's rolling and it won't be another stalemate project that loses steam.

Hi

I`d like to join this project too. I am familiar with each section of maya. My special skills are modeling and rigging. I Can do some soundediting too or just help with creative ideas.

Cannysage
09-19-2008, 12:36 AM
All inquires replied via IM!! thanks for the overwhelming level of interest everyone! staff number has already crept up to near 10! I have successfully recruited a high, senior level vehicle artist for the project last night! I have almost finished recording the audio for the first 3-5 minute clip. I completely skipped the story boarding process and started setting up the camera shots in Maya, along with the audio. I still need a high senior level character modeler, particle/FX artist and everything on my first post.

here's the basic premise of the project:
Style: Southpark/Simpson's humor, meshed together with Gorillaz style art and animation.
Age spectrum: Primarily, the cast consists of highschool seniors, college students and college grads, but not limited to.
Content: explicit language, partial nudity, mild violence

Hi,
still looking for motivated people in the staff!
My concept artist is roughing out the first 2 characters as I speak and our composer is working on a score. I'll be recording up the 2nd scene and compiling a rough in Maya, again. We're a bit behind on modeling, from the time frame that I've had in mind. Sorry, no samples, yet, as I have not received any assets. hang in there gang!

right on! your stuff is great! the chevelle is completely awesome! It's the style I'm looking for in a car, in one of the scenes. please PM me your email. We have a list of simple stuff to model, to warm people up.. then we'll have more intricate stuff down the line.

don't have a lot of character modeling experience-- trying to learn as much as possible- would be able to do aux 3d modeling, fences, electrical posts, buildings etc. :)
however.. 4 years experience in motion graphics, compositing, editing (i guess you would need that later on in the project)

check out the work: www.uroshp.com

we can absolutely use your talent!! the motion graphics in particular. I've checked out your site and your work is amazing. Please PM me your email address and I'll fill you in on the details

* also, all later inquires have been replied via PM!
current progress of the project

- concept artist is still working on the 2 character (character art/3d is our current bottleneck)
- vehicle modeler is done with 1 vehicle (this is to be used for our teaser trailer)
- MITjosi really stepped up and modeled everything in his task list in no time. The room for our 1st scene is in progress
- megadeth at near completion with the music score for the 2nd scene
- few more seriously talented professions with potential recruitment in progress

sorry that I don't have anything to show yet, guys. when i receive more assets, ready to be animated, you'll see my mad skillz with the camera moves and animation! thanks for your patience :) Also, more motivated talents need to apply! This isn't going to be a sitting-duck project that's going to linger for years with minimal progress. :beer:

Since we need a lot of people, I thought the recruiting alone would take about a month. It's been exactly a month since my OP and we got a lot done, already. 4 different clips developing at once, so it'll be at least another few month. Everything depends on the pace of me receiving the assets.

Also got some new models for the room and I've rendered out a pan anim. will update shortly.

Hello,

I would like to join this project. I have no creative reel nor talent to offer by now, but i offer to do any french translation if needed. I can translate the dialogues or titles into french. I have a solid background in international experiences and different cultures meeting. I am leaving in Canada for 14 year where i studied in biochemistry, grduate and now working. I learn Maya and a lot of IT technologies and technics as self-learner for 4 years now.

I can bring the texts into different variations of french aimed at different french speaking target groups: french canadians, France french, african french sub-variations, etc. I could also help as a representant in Montreal just in case any local pitching or media contact person is necessary.

As a 3D anthousiastic this could be a dreamed experience for me to learn how an actual project is conducted. I like not only this project but the very purpose of this sub-forum where unexperienced people can collaborate with veterans within context of an actual projects, something i couldnt find anywhere else.

Thank you

when models are in an animatable state, there will be stuff to do for anybody that are interested. Models are the bottlneck, and I still haven't forgetten about the others that have volunteered.

p.s. just checked out your Giger model and animation.. good stuff! would you be willing to do some simple modeling tasks? If not, we'll have to wait til they're done. They're work in progress.

- needs shaggy, longer hair
- pants needs to be slighly more baggy
- needs to be a short sleeve, instead of a tank top
- baggier shirt
- bones are correctly scaled but skinning would be ideal.. if not, I can tackle this task
- texture needs to be refined
