View Full Version : FXWars! Tesla - kyleBotha - FREEFORM

i've never entered in a challenge before but it's been raining for over a week now and I've had time to block out some shots, kinda late entry but I think I'm gonna go for it.

I'd like to play on the idea of Tesla being mostly unappreciated in his time and his own solution to this problem. Definitely won't have time to finish but hope to submit at least an finished animatic with SOME shots completed. Maybe 'stylizing' it to black and white as well as blurring the snap out my shots might help.. maybe not.

This is the sorriest WIP thread I've ever seen and I apologize.

The past ten days I've actually become pretty involved in this project but forgot that I'm supposed to post my work as it comes along. Nevertheless, it has come along nicely and even though I dont have any WIP here with me I'll be posting a finished cut later tonight when I get home.

Hey man hope it's coming along! Will you get it finished in time? Best of lucK!

Tesla was hugely under appreciated genius of his time and after reading through some of his quotes the story basically unfolded itself. Two weeks start to finish (part time) using Maya, After Effects and Photoshop.

i see that you dont understand what they say but i have to tell you you missed the point totaly... with voice acting since they are not as old as you think and has nothing to do with tesla time ..........

hehe...I found it very amusing that the translation does not match :)

The voice gives a matching mood in my opinion.
