FXWars! DAMBUSTERS! :Lauer | Konietzny, Freeform Entry

Hey there..
What a hot topic!
This is our first fxWar and we are excited and curious how far we can get…

We've spent the last 2 days in researching, writing a script and sketching storyboards…
The next important step will be Camera-Work, to set up the whole scene, and than there
will be a Previz in the next few days, to show our ideas in detail.

I've started recently with the modeling of the british pilot, and Martin is working on the
environment, especially on the dam.

Team: Martin K. | Sebastian L.

work in progress

Here is a little update:

  • Character: switched to Mudbox for Sculpting

    Next Step: Finish Sculpting and Texturing

  • Dam: extended Environment and worked on the details

    Next Step: UV's and Texturing

it's pretty quiet here..
anyway.. we're working hard on the previz at the moment, but i haven't anything to show right now.

apart from that, we're doing some texturework and overall look-development:

yaay, good to know that somebody's watching
so in terms of lighting.. we want to stay as near as possible to the historical background (night shot) but with an artistic touch - so we are trying to achieve some kind of moonlight mood.

we're still trying to figure out how to do it, but i think we will go with a colored directional light and some image based lighting with the help of an hdri with a corresponding color palette. And of course some additional key and fill-lights.
actually.. we hope that this will do the trick - keep your fingers crossed for us
any other suggestions on this one?!

We were a bit busy over the weekend, but we still make a little progress.
Tomorrow we will show in any case the previz.. yeah.. or perhaps on Wednesday I promise..it's almost done

So here is the first version of our Animatic.
It's still in development, but you'll get the idea.

It runs about one minute and there's a lot of content in it.
So we really don't know how far we can get, but hey.. lets give it a try

Thank you Pierechod We track your Thread as well, and you really have a fancy Lancaster in your garage! We are curious and looking forward to what you conjure
  10 October 2010
ok everyone.. we're pretty busy with other stuff atm, but martin is making good progress with the modeling/rigging of the antiaircraft gun, the lancaster and the truck, while i'm taking care of the truck-animation.

some WIP-Pictures:

But we definitely want to finalize it as soon as possible!
Congratulations to Ferdi Willemse - your contribution looks dam(n) good
