Ok, we're gonna do a simple trailer for the movie of a superhero. Its about a simple guy, that doesn't know what he's capable of.
At first he's just a simple man (or a teenager), who lives a fearless life. But one day everything is going to change, when he finds out that whenever he farts, non intentionally, he becomes a killing machine.
Over the time he has developed some gadgets, that helps him conquer his enemies.
Now there is nothing more than a superhero who's traying to put a stop to all evil...with his farts...non intentionally.

I've decided to break this trailer into three main scenes.


Scene 01:
In this scene, our hero, who doesn't know that he's one yet, lives his own life in a small town. He is happy, has enough money, he enjoys everything. In fact at daytime everybody in this town are happy, but at night when all lights are gone the evil monster from the near cave, scares the town folks and takes its precious preys.
Our guy's main occupation is kitchen. He is a chef in a small restaurant. Doesnt have a girl, but his mama always said that the right woman will come, and the one just need to be patient. Our guy really loves pork-sandwiches, long summer days and the little park animals. Especially when he can feed them. The only things he misses are sunrises and sunsets. And thats all because of the stupid monster. He isn't scare of it. Oh, how he wishes to put a stop to that cruelty.

Scene 02:
One long summer day while he was sitting in the park and eating his favorite pork sandwich, a fantastic thing happened that changed his life.
(we are currently working on this part of the scenario, but it will have something with the strongest fart ever seen)
The one was amazed with his ability and in that instant he knew that something is going to change.
After some tests he realized what kind of a potential he is.

Scene 03:
In this scene, our hero has name, has gadgets and strong desire to kill some bad monsters. That wasn't what his mama told him, but it was exciting. Our hero becomes The Fartman (F-man or something like that), and the fight against his annoying enemy can begin.

Here's the first ideas of the main character.

We've decided that hes def a chef and that he has a belly. And we dont want him to be fat...

While we're deciding how to make the main character. I manage to model and texture one of the interiors.

C&C are most welcome:)

Sorry about double post...bad internet connection.

02-10-2010, 09:28 AM
This Fartman scenario sure seems exciting!

Don't forget to ad some funny gags in the scene 2 part, when he mega farts.

That'll be funny and cool.

Good luck to you in this challenge m8!

BTW your first render of the kitchen looks awesome!

We wanted to add some caroony feel to it. So we played with the latice deformer.

Hope you like it.

We are still searching for the main look of the movie.

If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Finally we decided how do we wanna make the main character.

Here's a process of finalizing idea.

At last here is our FARTMAN :), though he doesnt look like someone who make awful farts but still...

Its fully custom rigged and prepared for animation.

Hope you like it.

02-23-2010, 07:45 PM
good wip so far.
How will you give expressions to the homeless, since he has no eyes/mouth ?

02-23-2010, 09:55 PM
His part is very simple. He is just going to mumble something and gesture with his hand.

Tnx for commenting.

02-23-2010, 10:33 PM
This looks like it is going to funny as hell. My wife would say I could play that role perfectly.

02-23-2010, 11:03 PM
Well I was the main roll model for the story :D
And my girlfriend suggested this idea. If its gonna be as we are expecting to be then its all her "fault"... :)

02-23-2010, 11:13 PM
The pass the gas pass the blame. I can't wait to see this done.

02-24-2010, 06:17 AM
Hi,and thanks for comment! About the render,I don t think is the fur who make your render slower.I also use fur for grass,cose I tried with paint fx from maya and take me about 12-13 minutes per frame,but with fur take me only 3 minutes maximum,at PAL TV resolution 720/576.And the scene have only 14 400 polygons.I have a dual core 3 G and 2 G of memory,so I must always optimize the scenes.

A few solution:
Check how much poly you have.
Try to use the scenes with grass,for a good ungle but without using camera movement(so you need to render just one frame of the grass and compose with other layers.)
And also the texture should not be to big,try to use compressed files like jpg or png for alpha.
What make the render take so long? First the textures,second the polys followed by the fur,fx and others.

Hope that helps!:thumbsup:

02-24-2010, 08:50 AM
Tnx Adrian for excellent advices. Well, I have a lot of polys in the scene, about 1mil. Also the textures are pretty huge so...I suppose thats whats lagging the render.

Tnx again neighbor. Good luck.

Here's homeless guy. Rig finished.

I have a problem with occlusion. Dont know how to render his beard. And if I render occlusion without the beard I would have to make mask for the parts.

I have an idea to make a geometry that fits beard and to apply white matte shader. So that I can just add it as a blending mode.

If anyone has any better idea I would much appreciate it.

Tnx in advance.

Hope you like it

Here's F-Man's sleeping room. Its still wip. Bed cover will come as a cloth when the scene is set. So I didnt wanted to make it just yet.

Hope you like it... :)

Any comment? :(

03-12-2010, 01:20 AM
I'd suggest strong sun light in the begining like here - http://www.twincitiesdailyphoto.com/2008/old_poineer_press-02.jpg , because it looks flat.
Animation is preatty cool, but maybe you'd add some detail shots. for example knife cuting carrot in closeup - really fast cut.
And render could be better :S or make a better post to the image. Also I'd kill allmost all vignettes.

You doing good, don't worry if nobody comments just do your thing! :)

03-12-2010, 07:38 AM
Tnx digiboxoffice. Good critiques. I'll consider your opinion.

Here is the first shot of the second scene. Its gonna be longer. The first frame with the grass is gonna last longer and come out from the black, as the last shot ended.

Its not finished, still have to add some fitlers to look like first scene, but that comes at the end of the scene.

Second shot is on the way.

03-14-2010, 09:50 PM
yeah. as you mention the camera might be a bit hasty. but that is easy to fix. The look is ok. Some filters might do the whole thing good. Keep it up.

03-14-2010, 10:24 PM
I think that it would be more dynamic if there was some movement in the back. So I decided to add homeless guy and the car in the far back.
