After a lot of study and (more or less successful) tests and experimentation, I finally began working on the shots for my first technical showreel, which will be mostly focused on dynamics, lighting, and rendering, with a smidgen of sparse monkey-code.
Unfortunately, even though I’ve a pretty clear and defined idea of what I want to get to, I keep on being influenced by stuff I see around and slightly re-tune the visual result of my work. Such a phenomenon, which I’m sure is well known to the most of you, ends up triggering further researches and delaying the completion of my project, every time; but I guess that’s part of the game, and I’m still inclined to play it.
So this post is a report of one of those tiny details, which got fatter along the path.
Though my Quetz project is still in a concept phase, I chose to begin working on the look for its head titles. I will use a basic set in After Effects, and a tool I developed in ExtendScript, to explain a few stereoscopic techniques, within my next speech at View Conference (Turin, October 26th to the 29th, 2010).
Ladies and gentlemen, here’s another brand new episode from the series “One CG Man Band”: Flickr.
That’s right, everybody has Flickr.
That’s right, everybody has a digital camera.
That’s right, everybody is in the photo pro frenzy.
And I’ll be no exception.
OK, this will be the easiest blog I’ve ever created. What I mean is: no mediation, no attention to details or form (well, not an excessive one at least; I’m still a designer…), no strictness in staying on topic, no rigmaroles, no, no and no.
Though, in here I’ll be mostly dealing with computer graphics, and my new mission: rushing and studying to be a tough CG guy soon; very soon.
I have no exact idea why, but recently I woke up in a damn hurry for being one of those working in the bright nerdy world of visual effects. And, especially, being an Art Director and CG Supervisor, in record time.
