00:02-00:36 Previs Lead, 'Flight Sequence': Comparison of Animatic to Final Render

From A Complex Villainelle, Senior Class of 2010 Final Project (University of Colorado Denver)

Previs/Animatic Lead: Lead up a team of four other animation students to create the Animatic for the Flight Sequence as a proof-of-concept for the Director during Pre-Production, Spring 2009. Designed the "mini-story" of the flight sequence, animated, modeled and directed team. Storyboarding proved to be inadequate for conveying the needs of the Story team, so my team turned out this Animatic in a week, inspiring the rest of the class to quickly move from Storyboarding to Animatic ahead of schedule.

Software: Maya, After Effects, Mental Ray, Renderman, Fusion.

0:39-0:59 Animator, Various Shots from A Complex Villainelle

Modeled, Animated the Penguin (main male character) and Mary Poppins (model by Ellie Reznikov); the rest of the class (21 students) contributed to set/environment design, modeling, character design, lighting, texturing, and compositing.

Software: Maya, After Effects, Mental Ray, Renderman, Fusion.
