It’s not often i get the chance to go through the whole process of designing and creating an entire bust just for the craic. The students on the BA Animation course were asked to design and create an Alien Head. From concept sketching and painting to sculpting and on to 3d modelling and digital sculpt and render. Anyway I decided I’d join them…. I’ll add to this as I go.
This is the first draft of a showreel showing a collection of some of the work done by the students at LYIT HDip 3d Modelling and Animation. This is 3 months in and already they are producing some pretty impressive work. Be interesting to see what they come up with for their final projects in June! They have also been working with some Augmented Reality which isn’t displayed here. I worked with what I had to hand!
This project was created as a showpiece for the LYIT open day 2016. It is a VR video of the guys below in the main animation room 3336 at the LYIT campus. It took around 6 days from initial modelling to completion. As you can see there are glitches and hacks here and there and I would really just consider this a first draft. It will be worked on in the future I hope and developed into something maybe worth using in the future.
And here is the video: You will be better watching this with google cardboard turned on but if not just scroll around the image as you view.
SO I was doing some work with Johnny Ball of Think of a Number Fame from the 80s. I just directed a few pieces of interaction between the IZak9 Characters and the man himself. 1fuklll day of filming followed by a week or so of edits, animation and compositing. Here’s a quick snippet of the outcome.
