eLm0:

Its my thesis film for the Florida State University Film School. Its shot on super 16mm and involves a lonely little girl who retreats into her imagination to escape reality. So it cuts back and forth between live action and CG.

As she developes this story in her sketch book, she inadvertantly gains an audience of other children, and by the end of the movie she has a group of kids that all look up to her and ask for another story.

We don't do CG stuff at the film school.. this is the first animation attempt for the school.

The first for me as well. I've always dabbled here and there with CG. My last film had a floating robot head, but that was the extent of my CG work.

I wanted to try and really push my self for my thesis film, and I'm afraid I've bitten off more than I can chew. I'm kinda learning as I go you know. Full CG animation is much more time consuming than I thought. Anyway, its a hell of alot of fun figureing it all out.

Its a great learning experience for me... I hope to do another full CG short on my own when I'm done with this one. I've had this great idea involing an origami bird for al ong time, but decided not to do it just yet becuase I didn't know enough.

Anyway, blah, blah, blah...boring I know...thats where this CG stuff fits in the grand scheme of things.

BTW

BTW

This is the first CG character I did back a couple monthes ago for my last film.

He only has a small part in the short film. But he's what pushed me to tackle this current project. :-)

The film is called Jacob: The Move.... its a silly cartoony adventure.

there's a film from 1988 that's worth a look--it sounds like it shares some of your themes(I don't know if that presents good inspiration or unnessessary clutter at this point for you!). It's called Paperhouse. worth a look.

great scene(s) by the way. keep up the excellent work.

There isnt fire and sound in space either, but tell that to hollywood. Its one of those "It cant really happen, but the general populus thinks thats how it is, so give them what they want or they will be confused"

well technically...

technically....moonlight is blue if you use tungsten film which is balanced for 3200K.... also, I didn't really use blue light in that shot anyway... for films I have shot I like to use a sort of aqua greenish-blue so thats what I tried to get in that shot.


And what is this "Maya swing" thing everyone keeps mentioning... I've yet to take a look at Maya, I've been with lightwave for a while and I don't see myself leaving it.... so I have to say if its anything like mine, its just coincidence.... I was inspired by a shot in Toy Story though... there is a shot of a tree with a tire swing in the movie.
