Wanted to try a battlescene for quite a time now. There are some things bothering me, but I am really happy with the outcome, especially considering that it's my first attempt! And here's the 720p version on my Youtube Channel: [link]
I was testing i-ray for 3d max.. Render time for 300 passes was around 50-60 seconds and resolution 720p. Unfortunately Deviantart messes up videos and cuts the quality down quite a bit so I suggest you download the original file here:
Here the promised timelapse of this piece: Didn't record it in real time, as I knew it would take too long until completions. Hope that gives you a helpful inside, but if you have any questions then go ahead and ask!
My 3rd year film from IADT - (designed with the small internet windows in mind).

Three girls discuss what "real vampires" are like. An exploration of various vampire clichés and archetypes, featuring the titular character from Murnau's 1922 film, Nosferatu.
Cast: Jessica Freeney as Claudia (Blonde girl) Niall Doherty as Nina (Blue haired girl) Lee Kirwan as Lucy (Pink Haired girl) ---
How it was made
-The characters were hand-drawn into Flash, using a Wacom tablet and the brush tool (no line tool here, this gives a nice sketchy effect) -The backgrounds were done using the same technique as I used in Benevolent Evils - a collage of photographs I've taken, stock photographs, textures and then a lot of warping, cutting, blending and painting in photoshop. - Some of the backgrounds were made using stills from the original Nosferatu (now in the public domain), recreating memorable locations from the film in new ways by combining several shots together and adding more elements in. -Everything was put together on After Effects, one of my favourite programs to use for all purposes!
If anyone wants to know, the names of the fonts used are: Newcastle (the font for the main title) Jellyka - Estrya's Handwriting (the credits) And they're available free-to-use on www.dafont.com ----
This is my take on the various vampire archetypes - since vampires are very much at the forefront of cinema now, I thought it would be a good time to make a film like this.
This is the senior thesis film that me and two of my peers made at the Kansas City Art Institute. It is the story of a boy and his feathered companion and how they are trying to get back into the city that they have been rejected from. The solution: kill a giant worm that has been terrorizing the city.
Here is a quick breakdown of what each of us was responsible for in the film:
Andy Alberto, (Me, frostbitedude): All 3d aspects of film, all compositing, All 3d backgrounds, character design and development of worm, special effects.
Casey Parkhurst, (Parkhurst): 2d boy character, 2d architecture, 2d interior backgrounds, crowd character designs.
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!
