Mass Animation trailer

I am really excited to see the Mass Animation trailer out. It's so cool to be able to see everything lit and rendered, and I couldn't believe that my shot made it into the trailer!
Apparently they have a distributor now, which they'll announce at SIGGRAPH in August. The film should be out this Autumn so hopefully my work will be coming to a cinema near you soon!
In the meantime, Animation Mentor starts in just 3 days, so plenty to keep me busy while I'm waiting for the premiere ;)

House textures

Back to the Escape course while I wait for Animation Mentor to start up.
This tutorial involved mapping textures to a model of the front of a house. Very simple, and once again, just following instructions, but I'm really pleased with the finished result. I'll have to attempt my own projects once I know more about how to create these things, rather than use ready made files. (And buy a copy of Photoshop?!)

Tutorial, model, textures etc. provided by Escape Studios

Animation Mentor here I come!

I got my login details for Animation Mentor! I am so excited! It's getting closer and closer... really can't wait till the 29th when it starts properly.
It's hard to describe just how excited I am (especially to non-animators) but a frog on a pogo stick comes close...
