hi guys, if anyone feels that there maya skills aren't as good as they should be, i have some video tutorials from digital tutors and Gnomon that i brought. I believe that you will find the tutorials very useful. Leonard
Hi Guys, I am announcing by this weekend that you've finished your research and concepts and begin modeling.All this should be on your blog. we are all behind on the project, where we should be at the stage of texturing. Next week is our formative where jared is going to be discussing with us the progress of the team and work. LAST TIME FINISH RESEARCH, CONCEPTs AND START MODELING!!!
This is a rough storyboard and animatic drawn by Shuhel. We all came up with different shots and storyboards, eventually we narrowed it down and took the best elements of each of our storyboards and produced the final rough storyboard and animatic.
I thought about the project that we are going to do and the amount of research that is going to be taken place, so i decided to make the work easier for us.
Yemi, Shuhel and Marious, i want you guys to be looking at building designs for the cities because you will be creating a small city. i want you to be Researching on Artists, Designers, and Photos that you find interesting to you. i also want you guys to be working close together on the design of the buildings. create a Bird-map of the buildings, so you know where all the Buildings & Roads are going to be. Look on Leonard's blog to get an idea. Leonard and Trish will be looking at interior buildings and bridges using the same principles of research.
I came up with a idea of each person modeling, texturing 5/6 buildings based upon your building designs (research). Yemi - City Buildings/car Shuhel - City Buildings/car Marious - City Buildings
Leonard - Interior building/bridge/car Trish - Interior building/bridge
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR DESIGNS LINK UP WITH YOUR RESEARCH.
The vision for the short film is going to be an interior building zooming down into the basement (Garage), where there will be a car. The car will start moving off out side the basement (Garage) towards the city. We will also be creating a bridge, that will be leaving towards the city.
We have already chosen the theme Sci-Fi Futuristic, So the First thing we should do is gather up a lot of research. we should look at:
Artists Futurism art Other art styles Designers architectures work Photos-primary & secondary sources Books/websites/library Locations/Outings-museum Films/games- production artists Anything else that may be useful towards the Project.
I was researching some information on what architectures do when i came across these video clips of students architecture work. i thought that these clips will be useful and give us an idea of what is expected from us to produce.
Welcome Team Alpha, Over the past couple of weeks we have taking about the environments project. We all discussed about the theme and vision of the project, which was actually interesting with the amount of ideas we came up with. We have all decided to go with the theme and look of a sci-fi futuristic city.
Team Alpha is a group of talented students who are working together towards a final collaborative short film. The short film will be an environments project that will be modelled in 3D, UV mapped, textured and lit based upon the students research of environments, materials, designers, artists, outings..etc.
The following students are Leonard onikoyi, Shuhel ahmed, Yemi Akande, Marios Economides and Trish Phan.
