Additional Unit 5 Scenes

The Art of the Spawning H.I.V

The Art of the Spawning HIV

@Phil, Serious Problem (Unit 5)

Phil, my original Premier Pro project for Unit 5 has been corrupted because it doesn’t know where to locate any of my frames. Finding all the files manually is almost impossible because they are not clearly labelled. Is it possible I could simply post my additional scenes separately?

The Spawning: H.I.V

This project was a commission based project in which I was given the task to visualize (in CG) the process of an infection by the H.I.V virus. I chose to use the visual language of an 80’s style body horror movie.

@ Phil, Unit 5 resubmission

Phil, I’m a little worried about my Unit 5 resubmission as I only have a few additional scenes. I was wondering if it has to be in next week (the same day as Unit 6), or is there any time afterwards?

Render Test Attempt 2

Render Test

I have been experimenting with texture and have rendered a single frame of my opening sequence to show my progress. I’m trying to make something that looks slimy, fleshy and unpleasant. I think I’m almost there, except maybe it’s a bit plastic looking at the moment, not sure.

Untextured Playblast (Fall Animation)

This is the whole of my animation play blasted and roughly edited together. It’s a little on the long side but hopefully I can cut it down a bit in Premier Pro. Only the texture, lighting and rendering left to do.

Untextured Playblast (Everything So Far)

I have very roughly edited together all of the animation I have done so far, only about two more scenes to go and then texturing.

DVD and Art of Publication Cover (Slight Alterations)

I very much agreed with Phil’s comment about the title so I stole one of his recommended alternatives (The Spawning: H.I.V). I also adjusted the contrast a little to make the images a bit stronger.

Art of Publication Idea

I have decided to base my Art of Publication on horror movie posters from the 70's & 80's. I have chosen this theme because it ties into my animation. I particularly like the red, black and white combination in many of these posters.

Scene 1 Untextured Playblast

@Alan, Mutated Cell Progress & Modelling Help Needed

I am trying to complete my mutated cell model but for some reason every time I attempt to do something to the model, e.g. insert edge loop or extrude, I lose pat of the model.
