FXWars! QUEEN OF THE ROCKETMEN!: Jeremy Kendall, Single Shot Entry Updates!

This will be my first challenge. I have been wanting to do one for some time. I'm going to focus on one shot however I might end up doing a full sequence. -Jeremy

Hey Thanks a lot everyone. I have a few cool ideas I want to do. I'll share them when I have some animation started. I started last night with a few ruff sketch ideas, Then started some early Fumefx tests for Cannon Fire from an airship ect. Just started some simple stuff that did not depend on camera or models. I got an pm with the passwords for some of the models today. So when I get out of work tonight I'm going to jump on blocking out the scene. Thanks to everyone who submitted models that we can use, it will save a ton of time for me at least. I will be using models from the artist (japetus and jojo1975) I will start posting videos very soon.

I do have a quick question.. The more I think of this scene. It will for sure have more than one camera cut. What separates the single shot entry from the full shot entry? And is there a running time length requirement or anything for a full shot entry?

I'm trying to get my website back up and running untill then.

Its buffering slow at work for me not sure if its our network or not.

Still working on everything right now the speed of the planes and the camera are a way to fast. Just started working on the opening shot last night. a ton of more updates from Rnd will be uploaded soon. Sorry for the bad animation.

Here is another update. http://www.jkendallfx.com/fxwars/previs_fxwars2.mp4

Only 1 day and two nights after work into the animation. Cameras are still a little jerky. Also thinking of making my own plane to use not sure if I will have the time or not. Still a lot of animation left plus then a lot of fx to get done. Not sure how much texturing will get done on the models that have been borrowed other then some metal shaders,glass. The Airship scares me on the amount of detail on it. Planning a minute to a minute and half run time with this. Crossing fingers. -Jeremy

Hey thanks. I'm still working on the 1st pass on all the shots. Here are a few more shots that I was able to get blocked out. http://www.jkendallfx.com/fxwars/fxwars_previz5.mp4
Before I forget I have about 36 hours on this so far from prep time to blocking all this out.
Max,pflow so far.

Final First pass. Going to go back and rework a couple of the cameras and clean up some of the animation. I'm planning to have a ton of extra planes in the background probaly going to be particles so I dont have to have key them all. Then I will be going full force on the fx. In the end I'm looking to have a somewhat of a color pallet somewhat simalar to Sky Captian to help give it that 30s look. 44 hours todate.

Good job! I really liked what you did, I think your image compostion and angles where great, I wish I had your skills there. I also really really liked the rocket impact on the airship. Looking forward to you finishing this! 2 thumbs up from me!
