Cheese Wars, Episode 14: Looking for help

Howdy folks,

If you've been looking for an excuse to create talking cheese, here's your chance!

I'm a recent convert to C4D after having used Animation Master for the past few years to make a little web series called Cheese Wars. There's a new episode in the works - the script is done, the voices are recorded and some of the sets were modelled in AM before being transferred to C4D. The problem is I'm back in school and that's kind of cut down on modelling and animating time. So I'm throwing myself on the mercy of the CGTalk forum: would anyone like to help out?

Character modelling is job one right now, but if you want you can animate, light, rig, rewrite the script, compose a soundtrack, make posters, cater, coreograph a dance number or even be best boy. This has always been a decidedly non-profit, one-man show, so you won't make any money. But you will end up with the undying adoration of the half dozen crackpots who call themselves Cheese Wars fans. And maybe even a nice Hickory Farms gift basket.

Below are links to the last couple of episodes, and the entire series can be found at www.cheesewars.com. If you're interested, drop me a line at gwrennNOSPAM@att.net (obviously cut out the NOSPAM part). Don't use the e-mail listed on the website, it's broken right now.

Episode 12 Quicktime (8MB)
Episode 12 DIVX AVI (18MB)
Episode 13 Quicktime (13 MB)
Episode 13 DIVX AVI (23MB)

If you've read this far, thanks for your patience,

Gregg Wrenn

Hey Anadin and substrauss,

Drop me a PM or an e-mail at gwrenn@att.net if you're still interested. I tried e-mailing you guys but my computer was acting funny so it might not have gone through.

Hey gregg. Daniel here. Did you get the 2 models i sent you? sorry for the big size, umm i also finished the monitors stack which i am proud to say is very low poly and i also finished the table ,so all thats left is the storage cabinets and the sink ,then i can get started on the animation. may i ask how you guys do the talking/lip-synching done cuz i watched one of the episodes (actually #13 so i could get into #14) and the lips werent even attached to the characters ,so did you just composite them in post production?

Hey everybody, check your e-mails if you haven't already.

Daniel: the mouths are 3D too, they're just a separate part from the body so they're hardly attached at all. The eyebrows also float free. I like the look of the eybrows when they can jump off the face, but the mouth is another story. When I first made these guys I was brand new to 3D and couldn't figure out how to give them a mouth that wouldn't distort the rest of their body when they talked - one of many drawbacks of characters without heads. Before making episode 12 I toyed around with giving them a proper mouth with a tongue and teeth and everything, but it was just too big a change to make in the middle of a series.

Hey jay,

This is the escape pod, right? Good start. Could you push those two chairs closer together and make the whole thing pretty cramped? If you remember the end of Alien, Ripley can barely move in that little ship. Of course, our version needs to fit four characters, not two but we want to keep it tight (be sure to put in four chairs).

If you'd like to use some of the pieces from the other sets - like monitors or control stations or what - let me know and I'll post 'em on the website. Also, you were looking for some shots of the exterior of the pod. I'll capture some from the movie tomorrow and send 'em to you.

As for texturing, if you've got some ideas go ahead. If you haven't already, take a look at http://www.cheesewars.com/ep14/stills.htm to see what some of the other sets look like. I've got a bunch of animated decals to use for digital displays and stuff so you can leave those blank for now if you want.

Looking forward to the rest of it,
