15fps_0002. . .

15 frames per second. That’s 54000 an hour. Your brain doesn’t like it, not at all, it has been trained to need 9 frames more per second to be happy.

Most people don’t appreciate how much is really going on in a lamp:

15 frames per second. That’s 900 a minute. Your brain doesn’t like it, not at all, it has been trained to need 9 frames more per second to be happy.

What does it take to make 15fps something you can enjoy? color grade? camera movement? composition? vfx? music? location? Can interesting and beautiful imagery be made with cameras meant only for utility?

Let’s find out shall we:

Probably more than that. You people will never be satisfied. . .

floating world: project page updates. . .

Here are some items I recently added to the Projects section of my site for my Floating World project.

A few storyboard panels:

And a quick scene layout demo:

More to come very very soon!

floating world: lives again. . .

fw teaser

The Floating World is back in action, spitting out some RenderMan renders of some shots, and trying to get the CG shots really polished up. Should be posting more animation and artwork very very soon.

I have some more tools to post up as well, an update to the MayaRender droplets and some other interesting workflow tools.

project: open-source music

Just like Buster Moody mentioned on his blog we are going to be doing a little song trading. (Starting fairly simple projects in Logic 8, with just basic structure and a little bit of melody, and giving it to another person to do whatever they want with.)

This should be a fantastic way to learn as it is fun to toy with other people’s work and it is also great motivation to keep producing.

Here is the original project I was given:
Gong Song - Buster Moody_take1
Some fine cutlery used to slice up the opening sample, seemed like it would be a great basis for a simple melody.

Here is my version after a few hours of tinkering:
Gong Song - Take 1 (aANDORU version)
I was really interested in the sample he used so I just made some slight adjustments to it, mainly using one as the driver for the melody, and developed my own beat. Still have a lot more planned for this, but we are trying to maintain a quick turn around time.

We are learning here, so feel to leave a comment/feedback on anything. And if you would like to join in, definitely let one of us know.

watch/projects: sandopus Project. . .

The Sandopus Project from Andrew Hake.

warm up project for Senior Year at KCAI. my first return to backlit sand animation since Sophomore year. There are many things I would like to tidy up, as well as a few more layers I would like to add, but it was a fantastic project. Spent right around 24 hours for this one once I started animating.

This version is at 24 frames per second so there are a few oddities, some jittering and things, but I kind of like it, it maybe works a little better at 12fps though as most stop motion does, so I may upload that one as well.

This was also my first test with Dragon Stop Motion, a fantastic bit of software developed by Jamie and Dyami Caliri. Jamie is probably most well-known for his United Airlines paper cut-out stop motion commercials. This is without a doubt the best stop motion software out there, I highly recommend everyone check it out. I am planning on testing it as a pencil test system very soon as well.

The music is “Snow Tip Cap Mountain” by The Octopus Project, from their album, Hello Avalanche:


You may see more of this one in the future…
