A thunderstorm separates a young branch from his mother tree, and sends him falling into the town below. The small sapling, named Ramus, awakens and quickly realizes that this may be his worst nightmare. The sights and sounds of his fallen comrades surround him in a cacaphony of saw buzzing and wood crackling. Getting back home becomes his only hope for survival.
The goal of this project was to create a piece that was both entertaining and displayed both of our technical and creative strengths. We incorporated the use of both 2D and 3D softwares to develop the initial look and feel of the piece as well as execute the final results.
Photoshop was primarily used for character/look/RnD/storyboard development, textures and matte paints. Premiere was used to create the initial edit of our project, as well as checking continuity of shots and color. After Effects was used for some compositing and the final edit, where final color grading and the credits were done. Bridge was used for file management of all of our image sequences and textures. Finally Media Encoder and Player were used during the output of our final movie files.
