hi has anyone created their own film from start(modeling) to finish(render and compositing) on their own?im just starting and i was wondering if I'm crazy?like taking on too much or being too ambitious?im about to finish animation mentor and the film is due to be released nov(2013).sets are odleed already.its 45 minutes long.am i crazy?thx
45 minutes sounds real ambitous for one allone to create.
We created a project which was about 4:30 minutes in the last term and we were 7 artists from the 3d section and about 8-10 artists from audio, film and other sections.
It was a combination of real footage and CG and I can tell you, it was a lot of work and very hard. At the end we werenŽt really satisfied but we had to finish it.
I donŽt know of what you are capable of but depending on what youŽve planned, 45 minutes in this timeframe for one allone is indeed a bit too much in my opinion.
thx guys so its an animation only and for kids so animation won't be 100% perfectly crispy etc.its character animation
sets and characters and voice overs and all audio are ready for animation so its now the animating and the rendering.am i crazy?i can extend deadline if need be.
done shorts.i no maya backwards and about to finish animation mentor so i animate fairly fast too.is this totally not reachable?
hey man, I did short animations from scratch, by myself in college and then in university and neither reached the quality I was aiming for. I suggest doing something short first (maybe 3-5 minutes) and see how you go from there. But spend as much time as you can on the STORY!!! Especially if you do something long, no one wants to spend 45 mins watching a bad story, no matter how good the animation is. Short animations can be just as powerful as full length features. Take '9' for example, I prefer the short to the full length feature. Check out Kiwi, A Gentleman's Duel, Cousin, Annie and Boo, In The Rough, Fallen Art (I could go on and on at this point) to see what can be achieved in just a few minutes.
thx i got a qualified script writer to do story hehe..story is amazing.truth is I've started already and i wil carry on but sometimes i just need the motivation to let me know i actually wil finish.it gets scary sometimes.....
