A few weeks ago I attended a Los Angles Modo User Group meeting and showed an incomplete version of RUIN.
I’m slightly embarrassed by myself here (is that how I sound?), but some people may find it interesting.
We chatted about a few shots in particular and the challenges they presented along with some specific techniques pertaining to Modo. Then the conversation moved to more broad notions on filmmaking and my various inspirations.
The sound isn’t the greatest, but we did the best we could.
More info on the event along with the other presenter’s demos, HERE.
SNAPSOUND and I visited Monkeyland Audio to do the final theater mix. Here’s a little snippet.http://www.conceptruin.com
We gathered up some friends, called in a few favors, and drove out to a desolate road in Palmdale to record hours worth of bike sounds for RUIN. I was there shooting video with a 5D, and SnapSound guys cut a cool little video.
This is the basic bike rig I created for doing animation.
More will come now that I’m finished with the short. This video demonstrates the “auto-rig” I made in Lightwave. Everything you see there is basically procedural motion, using noise channels and the like. It was a quick way for me to add life without having to touch every frame of the piece.
