Pfff, you have no idea what some of the early bad renders looked like. xDD Bald would have been normal. We had one where the boy's eyes were open and entirely black. It was horrible. xDD And all the subsurface scattering passes looked horrifying too because it was just the skin with no eyes - and red inside the eye sockets. 8C

But yes, thank you very much :3 It was, but we're really happy with the result still.

Remember my animatic from November?

0:54


WE FINISHED IT AND HANDED IT IN YEEEEEEEEAH.

Obviously some things have changed from the animatic and we had to make time-compromises and other-rageragerage-compromises, but we tried hardest to keep the mood intact.

THIS BITCH PUT US THROUGH HELL. The ambient occlusion pass kept arseing around, the boy's eyebrows fluffed up every few frames, his eyes opened and became PITCH BLACK, his hair reset itself, and more. And that was only during the rendering. Before that we had the boys EYES reflected in the car and staring at us, a brick wall and a face floating past on the car (before we dumped the weird daytime HDRI and used a darker and more appropriately coloured one), and glorious lighting episodes of variously looking like he was being shot at or staring at the Hiroshima incident out of the window. xDDDD

BUT YES. We are happy and bushy-tailed, if not bright-eyed. We rendered in the wrong aspect ratio, which was annoying, but we might redo it in the right one, and Spence is thinking of sending an HD one to the renderfarm when that exists. >3>

IT'S COOL, WE'RE PROUD. 8D

Director: Meera
Underlings: Me, Flav, Fayeez, Spence and Wojciech.
Special thanks to Rachael, our ballerina.

Made in:
Maya primarily, for modelling, animation, lighting etc. Plus RealFlow for the water, Photoshop for the textures, ZBrush for details, Face Robot for the rigging, headus UVLayout for the UVs, something for the music and wheelie chairs for render wrangling. :3

The only problem I have with this otherwise nicely done animation, is the face of the child, it's a bit too mature to look like a little kid.

Thank you, yeah, you can blame that entirely on me ^^; I did the concepts/orthos for the boy, and my children-drawing ability wasn't fantastic. Glad you like the rest of it :)
