View Full Version : Sueños (Dreams)- video

11 November 2012, 11:34 PM
Hi all.

This is a very exciting challenge.

My idea is to make a short film. the name of the short film es "Sueños" (Dreams).

This is about something I think we all have in common, is that as we grow we forget our dreams and leave forgotten. and let the day to day envelop us and suck our life. when we realize, the best of our life has gone and left most of our unfulfilled dreams.

The story is about a man (Lorenzo "Lawrence ") who is in his adulthood. Lorenzo gets up one morning after have had a nice dream in which he remembered how much he wanted to be an aviator when he was TEN. when awakens realizes that this was only a dream, and should return to the reality of their daily lives and boring. he wonders at what point he let his dreams die and let his life become a boring routine.

Lorencito that day (himself, when he was ten) is presented on several occasions and invited him to take courage and follow his dreams. Lorenzo does not accept because he is afraid. and the outcome can not be other than an old lorenzo never followed their dreams.

Really fast progress! Nice work.

Don't forget to think about the seams in clothes - where the sleeves attach to his shirt especially. Striped shirts typically have a direction change at the seam on the shoulder since the sleeves and body are typically made from different pieces. I think this will really help his shirt look more realistic.

Here's a good example:

This is a screenshot of part of the animation. in the first scene.

Hi all!

I have been working on the intro to the short film. and so far I have come to this result. still no sound.

Some animations are a little slow motion because at that time the character is in the arms of Morpheus, then everything happens at a different rhythm.

By the way, I think I had not mentioned yet, the following scenes will be a combination between real image and CG. this intro is only in 3D.

Criticisms and comments are always welcome and appreciated.

hi all.

as said before. The following scenes will have a combination of real images with CG.
These are some pictures of the location of the first scene. capturing hdri maps.

The following is the background image for the first scene

This is the part of 3D.

And this is the integration.

I'm working on the animation for this first scene, as soon as it finished, I´ll upload it.
C&C are always welcome.

Hey Sebastian.

I´ve been watching several "works in progress" and posts, and I´m really amazed with yours.
I also noticed that you take in account the other´s people advices, and that´s really cool because you feel like if you were participating of the movie.
Anyway.... the important thing here is the video, and so far, looks great, I hope it finishes well.
Please keep posting more updates.
Good luck.

Thanks suruj2d3d. There is still much work to do and only 25 days remaining ... I will try to finish by the deadline, but is rather complicated, I have only one computer to work and render.

Anyway, the most important thing is try to have fun, learn and share with the CG community. This is a very entertaining challenge and there is high quality entries.
