Yo yo, this past weekend we completed the pickups for the film and now have all the live action footage!
So, I've uploaded a new effect i wanted to share with you...
This one is the computer programmer's desktop. there are several shots throughout the film of what the rogue programmer is doing. in order to make it look like a futuristic desktop, i designed a new looking desktop and created a webpage out of it. I then view the webpage in Internet Explorer, and use the browser's "full screen" mode to hide the entire interface. The laptop i was using has a 1024 x 768 screen resolution, so my page is made to that spec.
As i mentioned in the earlier post, i've been looking for a 3D animator. Here are some rough documents I put together in my RFP to explain to potential animators what I'm looking for.
I have photo plates that will be used for backgrounds, I have the 3D models and textures. These images are my way of showing storyboards as well as what elements I already have prepared. The idea is to give them as much information you have about not just the materials and assets, but also how you're visualizing the shots to look like. So, I've included photoshop composites I made from the modellers' work-in-progress shots. Click to enlarge:
First off, lets talk about this image! As you may know, our story revolves around the mission of D9 to detain and question Daniel Richards, a rogue programmer with complete disregard for Federal regulatory standards governing AI software development. There is a key point in the film...
...where the Richards' dossier is revealed and the true nature of the government's interest is finally disclosed. this image is one of a 5 image sequence that shows screens for Richards' dossier. I had to crop the image because it contains a key plot point and I don't want to ruin the story for you! I'll try and post more of them later on. Right now, I'm trying to break down how I want these screens to animate in the film!
This is our 3rd one...check it out...Anatomy of a Fight Scene!!!

The rough cut is complete.
Now I will sleep.
pretty darn sweet. here are some images of the completed models and texturing for the Homeland Security Cyber Crime HQ and a hover bus...more after the jump...
So the modelling and textures are now complete for these models. They now will be animated and dropped into the film's rough cut.

In the magazine that recognizes all filmmakers as perpetual students, we have an article about how one of our sets was built.
Check it out dudes. New WIP for you all. This is the Department of Homeland Security's rooftop!
Hey dudes, here's episode 2 of our ongoing video blog series! In this episode we meet actor, Einar Gunnar, and the team of GornFX who've been tasked with tackling all the practical effects work for the film. We'll see these guy again in future episodes too. Enjoy!!
