The Nerd is my Helsinki Metropolia U.A.S. bachelor's thesis. It's a story about a nerd, who is bored of playing the same old game alone. If only there would be a nice girl with whom to share the gaming experience...
The story of the Nerd was invented about 2005 during a stop-motion animation course. It didn't end up as complete animation back then, but the idea stayed alive. In the summer 2011 I decided to create a 3D animation based on the story as my thesis. Finally, The Nerd was finished in the spring 2012.
The Nerd was modeled and animated with Autodesk 3ds Max. It was rendered with mental ray and the post-production was done with Adobe After Effects.
I would like to hear some comments and critique of my animation, as well as my portfolio site below and its content. :)
