Cloud fly through

I was initially a little skeptical hearing about creating a cloud fly through in’ Motion’ using only four photographs and some cloud brushes in Photoshop. But……check it out yourself some interesting possibilities here.

Sintel | Blender Animation

“Sintel” is an independently produced short film, initiated by the Blender Foundation as a means to further improve and validate the free/open source 3D creation suite Blender. With initial funding provided by 1000s of donations via the internet community, it has again proven to be a viable development model for both open 3D technology as for independent animation film.”

The Blender community have engaged in a number of ‘open’ movie projects involving online collaboration with hundreds of animators around the globe. This is the third such project and it is no doubt quite an extraordinary testament to the power of open source technology and online collaboration.

The Veil

This was one of my earlier fractal animation videos, (original soundtrack). I guess it’s logical to show this in the light of talking about working with students who are submitting video as part of their HSC body of work. This work was exhibited at last years Digital Fringe in Melbourne and screened internationally as part of that festival. I think it’s relevant and also good that students see that the person teaching them also practices.

What’s also interesting is that it was through learning about it, i.e., to teaching students how to edit and work with video, that my eyes were opened to the possibilities, and I became interested in working with this art form.
