Here are some shots from " Hooked", our studio's latest short film. It was written and directed by our lead animator, Friedl Jooste.
I did all the lighting, shading, rendering and 80% of the compositing and post work. All lighting, rendering and shading was done with Lightwave 3d 9.6, animation was done in Maya and post work with Fusion 6
Texturing was lead by Lynton Levengood, who also happens to be an awesome matte painter & concept artist.He recently came second in a painting challenge hosted by the world renowned ImagineFX.
Niki Cilliers was responsible for the environmental layout and modeling, she's also a brilliant animator.
She maticulously placed every little rock and twig until she was satisfied.
In dynamics we had Rudi Naude, Friedl and myself.
Animators included: Lizelle Levengood, Gillian van Aard, Alistair Grant, JC Malan (who also had part in the compositing), Samantha Davies and Maxine Purdon. All these folks also had involvement with modeling and texturing and their passion and drive helped to push "Hooked" to where it is today.
This was Friedl's directing debut and we all loved working with him.
Hope you guys enjoy the pics!
