Final Compositing In Progess!

Hi Everyone...
Have put most of the final comps together now in After FX, have one last shot to re-render, which will probably take another 6 hours!

Added rain in After FX (CC Particle World)

Put together the MP3 player, with working screen!

Changed the final shot, decided to use Maya's Particles instead - much better, and quicker to render too!

Hi guys

I haven't disappeared! I am still getting my renders together and re-rendering some shots to fix any errors (there were a few! ) Here's a few shot's of what I've been doing while waiting for renders:

This is the opening shot - guitar shop exterior, I want to add rain over this using After FX, but theres still a few frames to render

This is in the middle when the metal guitar gets ultra-angry and flys at the electric guitar (anime style!) reference and inspiration taken from Horton Hears A Who

And this is one of the final shots, using some tricky comping skills I made some sparkling swirls, which symbolises all the different guitar styles (with help from the MP3) coming together and making great music (awwwwwwww)

Here it is - my current show-reel! The segments featuring the guitars are part of a short film I'm working on for my final project for the year. Remember to view this in HD too!

First year Final Project

This is my final short animation I did for my 1st year at Lifeway College. A little robot made up of pre-loved computer hardware comes across a new computer - but isn't sure how to 'connect' with it. It took me around 6 weeks to complete this project, it was a lot of fun and I was happy with the end result!

Coffee Break in Renderman

This is a still-shot I made based on a photo I took, it took around 3 weeks to finish. I did this to get more familiar with Renderman's features.
