I've discovered that I have no idea how to animate water properly! I still managed to finish animating and painting the waterfall scene yesterday, though. Here's a still...I have a boil for the background byt I may end up changing that if it looks too busy.

tests and more leica

Things have been going pretty smoothly -- I'm actually getting some work done!
If you'd like to see the fifty billionth version of my leica reel, you can click here ... again, it's about 80MB.

I've also been doing some animation! Wow!
Here's just some bottled water boils (this is so edgy and topical if you're in Vancouver right now!) that will eventually be moving around in after effects in some water. There will be 18 in total -- 9 different boils with two label/colour variations each (not shown here). I'm doing the start of this scene to the end of the waterfall-turning-to-dribbles scene for my motion graphics final project, which is a nice way to get two water bottles with one turbid rainstorm. (ha ha, that so didn't work).

ps. I can't remember how to embed video with html...can anyone help me? I tried a web tutorial thing that didn't really help.

leica leica

Okay, I think this is one of (if not the) finalish drafts of my leica. It's 63 megs, but if you're able to check it out and give me feedback, that'd be really appreciated. I'm pretty happy with it, I think.

After talking to Marilyn earlier this week, I decided to do the ol' "scan at hd, render at sd" trick, and have the hd fieldguide sitting on my desk to prove it.

Now: to work!
