Project Idea_Storyboard and execution

This is the journey of a silhouetted character and its realization of how small it really is compared to its world.

Dynamic Imaging 2

This is a comparison of a brain cell and the universe. Would like to play on the fact that we may be a very small portion of something that's also compared to something else on a greater scale.
My plan is to start with a simple object and explore and navigate the workings around it until it zooms out to something small and the process is restarted.

The Final

Well, this has been one work intensive and time consuming project and I loved every bit of it. This is sarcasm, but seeing the finished product, I am very satisfied with the results. I noticed that the most stressful thing out of this project was rendering! There were many failed attempts at rendering and it increased the time of production. I guess when working big, it really does make a huge difference. Also, I really did learn the power of working local than on the server. One thing I noticed was that even your files that you are using on a comp needs to be on the local system in order to get its full effect. I had a many showcase of my final project to a couple of people and they seemed to get the concept and thought it was successful. Hopefully Jill feels the same!

By 4/17: I plan to get a third of the project done. This includes the opening scene of the  powered off robot, a cut to the outside of the control room, a cut into the control room showing the scientist pressing a button to activate mechanical arm. On motion of the mechanical arm, it will cut back to the robot and the mechanical arm moving down and placing the energy ball into the robot's chest. It will then cut to a close up of robot's face indicating that it is online.

Demo Reel 3


The direction that this reel takes is very sleek and sophisticated. I love the introduction and how with a few words Skill Lab explained exactly what it is that they do. I love that the visual cues in this reel were based off of the audio so it kept a consistent rhythm through the reel. The beautiful contrast in each shot really caught my attention. I like that they made sure that each scene they used corresponded with the next even when they didn't seem to be from the same film project. I really enjoyed the transition between this elegant and slow beginning to a fast paced rendering of successful pieces.

Demo Reel 2


So, I love this reel for the fact that its very short and cut to the chase, yet I felt wowed by it when i watched it. The in your face position that Colin Sebestyen was well done and grabbed my attention from finish to end. I love the color gradient that is placed on the piece. I fee that it adds another element of beauty to this reel.

Demo Reel 1

I love the vintage and retro style of things and I feel that this demo reel takes it to that level of professionalism I like to see when attempting this look. I appreciate the production value that went into the title introducing Vincent VIRIOT who is the artist behind this reel. There is a theme and it corresponds with the videos very well.
