Showreel Complete

I finally got my animation showreel done!

I included the animations that I did with my friend Jordan which were mainly Stop-motion ones.

I’m actually really happy with it. I originally intended to make it using Windows Live Movie Maker, but I need to use iMovie because it was making me angry.

I then made the entire soundtrack in GarageBand.

I really just put a repetitive sound in first and then hit random keys repeatedly- it sounds pretty good to me. I actually think it’s better than all my other attempts for the crystal world project.

I got the cartoon falling sound from Freesound.org. (Link: https://www.freesound.org/people/CGEffex/sounds/89546/)

Sally the Salt Model

Since I discovered how to use the middle mouse button and managed to make that pretty cool fan, I figured I should go back and try to model the objects that I originally intended to.

I had chosen to model “Sally the Salt” shaker- star of my Youtube stop motion, (link is at the end of this post)- however, you may notice that she is missing her eye. That is simply because it took me long enough to get the simple shape of condiment container.

There were two new tools I learnt to use whilst creating Sally.

The texture tool and the tool to make holes.

Although, I’m not too impressed with the fact that the holes were square but I have yet to master the patience of making it more circular.

I used the Autodesk site for guidance on how to actually create holes in models, and a youtube video for guidance on textures.
