View Full Version : Decisive Moments

05 May 2010, 04:12 AM
"Decisive moments" is a short film of the student Vitor Teixeira in the specialization of Computer Animation, Master degree in Som e Imagem of the Escola das Artes. This animation is based on the visual aesthetics that call for meticulous observation of forms of beauty manifested in our day to day. Their non-verbal narrative, no plot and absent of any actor or argument, consists of a series of fleeting images of nature, water and fire, in a unique perspective, photographically appealing to many defining moments, where the clash occurs and the exhibition forms .

For reasons related with the University I can't show my final video during some months. I'm still talking with them about it but it seams I don't have all the rights on it. It was today the final presentation of an adventure that started in the last July. The first person I talked about it was David Schoneveld. I've decided to place this here because all the "shapes" I created were thanks to a lot of people in this forum. So I want to dedicate it to them. So this work is dedicated to:
David Schoneveld
Todd Palamar
Duncan Brinsmead
Vikas Chandel
Jeremy Raven
Wayne Hollingsworth

I'm really sorry if I'm forgetting someone.
I just wanted to say that when I started in the last July I had never worked on fluids before. It has been an huge and fantastic adventure that ended in an amazing night for me. My dream is to work in the cinema, I really hope that I can get there some day but in this moment for now I just want to became a professional effects artist.

The software used in this work was Realflow, Maya fluids, Mental Ray, FumeFx, Particle flow, Nuke and After Effects.

I've uploaded some still frames of the video. Really hope you all like.
