Whats been going on….

I realize I haven’t updated in awhile so heres whats going on. Been on a on and off streak lately since I had some things going on and some things to figure out. I haven’t worked on the short anymore yet since I’m figuring out how I want to do certain things. The last thing I was working on for it was the modeling, which I’m trying to do in maya but like I’m sure others do have problems getting what I want since modeling in Maya is a bit of a pain. I’m still gonna try between that and modeling what I need in Modo, so that will be a whooping 2 programs to learn on this project so far.

However right now I’ve been going back and revisiting an old project I had started  probably a little over 2 years ago now, which is a WWII Memorial piece of the Battle of the Buldge. I got the inspiration for this while doing some image searching on google while being really into Band of Brother (both the book and HBO miniseries), I had found an image that spoke to me in a way and I got some inspiration for it. Currently right now I’m remodeling the M1 Garand model I had made to be more accurate since I made some parts inaccurately before when I originally modeled it. One new program I’m going to learn for this project is ZBrush which I plan to do the snowy terrain and possibly add some details to a few things.

I’ll be posting some progress pics along the way to what I hope will be a straight finish for this project, but also here is a thread I have on spinquad about it Here

One other thing I’m going to look at doing to keep myself motivated is to see about getting involved in some sort of fanfilm project, but I’m going to try and not let that take away from my own projects.

Boards Version 1

ok Here is version 1 of the storyboards for my short. Took alot longer then I thought it would, but I’ve never done a whole short on my own and I’m learning Maya in the process so it’s bound to hit a hick up or to. … _Page1.jpg … _Page2.jpg … _Page3.jpg … _Page4.jpg … _Page5.jpg … _Page6.jpg … _Page7.jpg … _Page8.jpg … _Page9.jpg … Page10.jpg … Page11.jpg

Also in the works, I’m starting to put together a modeling reel (my first reel in AWHILE) already have a few things rendered out, I’m shooting to have that out pretty soon.

It Has Begun……

Well just wanted to get it out there that I have started work on my shortfilm, I have a story all planned out and broke down the characters aswell. All of the work on this I will be doing in Maya so this will also be a learning process for me while I work to get this complete. Of course I’m going to throw some side projects in aswell so I can have a break from it.

right now I’m still very much in a pre-production stage: I’m currently working on the storyboard for it now, have it all planned in my head just need to get it down on paper 🙂 which I hope to have that done soon and can move on to building the sets.

I’ll be sure to post updates along the way for those who read my Blog so you can see how far along I am. For now I’ll just give you a character sypnosis…

Doc – A guy that just trying to get noticed by his fellows doctors but
always seems to have a bit of bad luck when it comes to his creations.
He’s very determined to gain respect and recognition from his peers,
yet he’s always very nervous and down on himself a lot.

Robot – Doc’s ultimate creation which he hopes will finally get him noticed

Some updates

Ok so I’m gonna post some updates to whats been going on

Car Status – I know I keep saying it but it’s almost there I just have 1 more part to model and then gonna go over it and do some tweaks to make sure everything is nice and even and cruved nicely then it will be texture time.

Video Edit – I did another video edit for a game. This was a test for a job I’m am going for, what I have here is a 30 second gameplay trailer I put together for Prince of Persia. All of the video I recorded while playing the game using FRAPS and edited it together in Adobe Premiere.

During my christmas break I’m gonna shoot for getting the car done and texturing started. After I get the car completed I have plans to finally get started on my short film and have a look at doing some level design for games.

Hope everyone has a great and safe  Christmas and a New Years.
