Term 5 Recap

Hello Everyone,
So it is the end of term 5, going onto term 6 which is the final term. Yeah, I'm excited but scared and sad but happy... a lot of emotions. I just finished registering my schedule in my calendar and I'm going through an emotional roller coaster. But we'll get on that in term 6; lets focus on Term 5.

The main focus of term 5 was my Demo Real, getting it as complete as I can get it before the end of term which is Christmas Break. I knew that after the break it would take a bit of time to get back in the swing of things so yeah I worked myself to the ground to get where I'm at but it was worth it. I'm not going to show any of the animation just because I would like to refine parts of it more but I will show some test renders from each shot:

I think they are looking good so far and I'm excited to see the rendered animation in action; if only I can get the renderfarm to not fail on me...

Also during this term we had our last acting for animators class and the main focus was lipsync and subtext. It was of course an awesome class and really fun to see everyone's work. We got to use the new VFS rig which was rocky at first then after a while I got accustomed to the lag and the necessity of playblasts just to check on some things.

The Sound clip is from Step Brothers, I've never seen the movie but that is actually to my benefit for that fact that I'm not bias toward one way of acting. I was able to explore different ideas of subtext and just have fun with it. Hope you enjoy!

All in all, it was a busy but awesome term and I'm so excited for next term even though it is a bitter sweet feeling.

till next term
