"YELLOW LIGHT" - Animated Short

  • CONCEPT ART & ANIMATIC:
    The initial concept revolved around Calvin (literally) fishing for memories in a sort of "flash before the eyes." Kind of a mess of a story for a while.
  • CHARACTER TURNTABLE:
    Adult Calvin -- a pretty fun rig... complete with IK/FK switch & advanced twist!!
    Trickiest thing was the NCloth -- staying with his movement while still feeling loose at the bottom. Collar is controlled separately. Hair is controlled by SDK and blend shapes, face is joint-based with corrective blend shapes.
  • COMPOSITING:
    Combination of 2D and 3D animation for the dream-state feel...​​​​​​​
  • FINAL RENDERS:
