Excellent! That came across very well. I thought the whole thing fit together perfectly, from the voice over, to the music, animation, etc, everything. This team is well on the way to a great final entry!!!

Colored Story Boards or edited footage/renders: Patricia in the Alexandria library



Ok, time for a sneak peak of Patricia. This is actual footage render, only the post work for this single frame was done in ps, and the animation post will be done in combustion. Rendered with mental ray.

edit: of course i uploaded the file without dof, but you get the point :D

Yo!

Still in the game. We have been lighting and rendering like crazy for the past couple of weeks. No sleep. Eyes like pool balls. And altough the due date has been set back, we're still going to post the "semifinal" version on sunday. Meanwhile going to post some initial footage clips.

To Niten: Yep, we're at EVTEK.

To Coolkonrad: Thanks, and yes, it has been and still is a very busy week. This whole competition has been a huge learning experience for our team, and it was one of our main agendas when we decided to enter. We've done things that none of us really knew how to do in practice, only by theory, and thus it has been more of "learning to do" than "just doing". As I believe it is for most competitors.

oh and good luck to you too! I hope to get some constructive feedback after we post the semifinal version.

That's a great looking shot. I love how the truck slows down (for the bump in the road) but it takes the "camera" a split second longer, and then the truck speeds up again and starts to overtake the camera this time. You've obviously put a lot of thought into this and created something very dynamic. Very nice work indeed.

thanks a bunch guys!

The dynamics were designed first. how the camera works with the truck and the street. the furnishing of the scene was done from the camera viewport. This speeds up things because one doesn't have to do the whole buildings and stuff, just the parts that are visible to camera. This approach is good if the shot is "final", it leaves little or no possibility to rework the camera. We chose this approach though to save time. We knew that we have a huge amount of work on the whole, so we wanted to concentrate our time on learning new skills that we needed to finish the the shots we planned. If working for a director on big project with lots of people, designing only for the preplanned camerawork wouldn't be smart or even allowed, because there has to be room for moderate changes without reworking the whole environment. But here it was desided from day one, that we get the whole thing done, so decisions were made on where to allocate the working time.
