Animation

An assorted collection of final animations and side projects

  • Type Animation, Video, After Effects
Animation for my final major project, the Renault Bézier. I used 3ds Max for modeling, animation and rendering. It was a great project as it allowed me to strengthen my skills with mood, composition, lighting and animation to the point where I can tackle much larger projects.
Animation for the side project entitled Lexus Spirit that I created alongside my major project. Working on this has elevated my ability to juggle tight schedules and manage multiple projects simultaneously . For the Spirit, I wanted to let my hair down so to speak, and craft something with a darker tone while still being more visceral and futuristic.

He was designed and developed to star in films, unfortunately, acting roles have dried up for kind and well meaning robots this days. He patiently waits by his phone awaiting to be called upon by his agent (designer)

I produced this animation as the final project on my first year for my automotive design course. It's a modernization/ reimagining of Thunderhawk from the popular 80s cartoon called M.A.S.K. The vehicle was modelled and animated 3ds Max and rendered using mental ray in Max. In Adobe After Effects I composited in the lens flares and confetti particles. I found the existing camera movemnt too stiff so I simulated some camera shake to give it a 'hand-held' feel.

This the first proper animation I have made after learning how to get around Adobe After Effects. While making the original Illustration, War Mongrel, I would always look at it and imagine as if it was in motion. So it was a no-brainer that this would be the first animation project I would tackle in after effects.
