Shot Breakdown - Alex Fuller - 3D Generalist/Lighter/Comper/TD
Happy Feet 2 Crowds
I was tasked to populate roughly 50 shots in the movie with crowds which
referenced a global database of mocapped and animated performances, using
custom crowd tools based on the Cortex VFX library in Maya.
Shot 1 - The penguin toddlers in the foreground around the heroes and the
emperor penguins in the background are crowd
Shot 2 - All the penguins except for the hero 'Mumble' were all positioned
and timed to the music
Shot 3 - All the elephant seals around the hero characters
Shot 4 - All the penguins except for the two foreground heroes
Shot 5 - The krill crowd directly on top of the two icicles at the start of
the shot only
Figaro Pho Lighting/Compositing
I was tasked to light and composite about 5-6 entire episodes which are about
8 minutes in length. All shots shown are 100% lit/rendered/composited by me
using Maya, Mental Ray and Nuke.
Personal work - Realtime Modelling+Rigging
100% created from scratch, it shows a realtime model with normal mapping that
has been rigged with an independent IK/FK rig with easy ways of blending
between the two with visual feedback.
