Broken Bow is a small Lord of the Rings fan film project that I'm producing, directing and acting in! The story takes place in Middle Earth, during the early days of Aragorn's reign as king. A young ranger is caught in a conflict between rangers and dangerous Easterlings.
FINALLY!! After all this time! Here is my senior thesis to share with you!! Bear with me now, this is the first time I've submitted any film to dA, and if there are any problems you see like skipping or things taking a long time to buffer TELL ME! I'll upload a smaller version of the film
So this baby took a year and a half to make! That includes visual development, pre-production, animatic, 3D modeling, texturing, 3D animatic, set dressing, and finally animation/dynamics, final rendering, and film/music editing. It was a fun and painful process to make indeed
I do love my film, but there's also alot I'm unhappy with. Many things had changed in the process from what I originally wanted. And right now, I'm actually saving up to buy the programs I need to actually redo my entire thesis. Yes. I want to remake the entire story It wont be for a while, but its a goal.
But in the meantime I hope you enjoy the tale of Kathryn, a young girl who sucks her thumb, who finds herself trapped in the very fairy tale that warned her to stop her bad habit in the first place.
Legal garbage: -My thesis was based on the tale "Die Geschichte vom Daumenlutscher" from the book Der Struwwlpeter by Heinrich Hoffmann. -I was given permission to cut, edit, and use the music "Danse Macabre" by Kevin Macleod (originally composed by Camille Saint-SaŽns). -Entire short (everything in it) was made entirely by me while attending Ringling College of Art and Design. -Programs used to make this were Autodesk Maya, Adobe Photoshop and Premiere, and Pixar's Renderman.
This is my senior thesis film from Ringling College of Art and Design, that I co-created with my partners, Lindsey St.Pierre , and Ashley Graham (Blog: ashleygrahamart.blogspot.com/ )!
The film won the 2013 gold Student Academy Award for animation! We are so honored!! The reception of the film has been wonderful and we are all really grateful to everyone who helped us to be able to create it!!
Our musical score was composed by Corey Wallace, and the sound by Mauricio D'Orey
We used Autodesk Maya, Nuke, Photoshop, and Pixar's Renderman to create it
The film centers around the Mexican Holiday Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Hope you enjoy!
