Brain Damage Updates

Like a cat 3 months behind on its rent, things have been getting rather hairy and stressful. As Ticked Off (http://www.ticked-off-doj.blogspot.com) has now arrived at the temple of the effects Swami, Kieran Duncan, I can put a bit more focus back into the splatter frenzy that is Lauren Knight's 'Brain Damage'.

The work is on schedule and final scenes are beginning to materialise. In the meantime here are a couple of tests. Keep in in mind that these aren't the final articles, but feedback, suggestions and even questions are, as always, more than welcome.

Brain Damage Scene 1 test

Here's the almost complete first scene for Lauren's film Brain Damage. We just need to add in some z-depth for some light fog and a subtle camera move.

Scene 2 isn't finished yet, but it's inclusion is to show the transition into it.

Brain Damage quick lighting/colour test

I set up a simple lighting rig earlier so we could begin to play with the overall tone and feel. Lauren wants to set the animation at dusk, so we'll be playing with a lot of pinks and oranges. We want to retain a graphic novel feel without making the lighting and cameras overly realistic.

The tower is still to be textured, the planes dropped in and the airport tinkered with a touch more. Just an early test, but hopefully it'll put us in the right direction.
