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]
you thought it was the bad ending...but it was only the beginning.
yes, i actually made a kenji "instafeels", although in this case it is a mock trailer for a fictional sequel to KS, with Kenji as the culprit! after animating this i threw it into aftereffects to do some cool effects on it. i hope you like it!
to view it in better quality & higher definition up to 1080p, check it out on youtube, and look out for animated gifs from this animation at my tumblr within the next week!
I did all the sets, puppets, animation, music (composition and performance, on POTS AND PANS!), voices (that's me barking and growling), sound effects, and editing, with a little technical assistance from my piano teacher (the incredible Mike Springer-->[link]) and my wonderful father. Plus my mother let me commandeer the dining room table. No class or anything; this was my own personal project.
It took an enormous amount of work and time (about 5 months), but I loved it! I plan to major in animation when I go to college, mostly with stop motion and other experimental media.
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!
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!
Driftwood is one of the visual novels I am currently working on - in this case, as the animator. There are 2 days left in its kickstarter. the goal has been raised and beyond that! But, if it hits $8K, another character will be added! What does this mean for me? It means I will be animating another piece for that character!
This is just a short clip of animation for the intro of Driftwood that I created for the Kickstarter, which will be longer. I will be making at least 4 more of these for each route - and hopefully 5 if another $1k is raised in the next 2 days. If you can contribute, thank you! if not, i hope one day you will enjoy this project and all the hard work put in to it.
