This is not easy (for me)!!!


If anyone has any good rigging tutorials for Cinema 4D, please send them my way. I am very close to scrapping 3d for the characters (except the heads), as I can not seem to get a proper rig going. Anyway, there will be an animation test, I just don't know if it will be with my original 2.9D technique...maybe more 2.6D, hah.

Fathoms For Change


I have decided that I want my personal projects to be a vehicle for change. Not just for me, or for you, but for the world. Therefore, any present or future short film I make will be in connection with at least one non-profit that I think is changing the world for the better.

For Fathoms I want you (I know there's at least two of you out there!) to pick the charity that Fathoms' proceeds will support. I've narrowed it down to these four relevant groups, but feel free to suggest something else in the comments.

Vote in the sidebar, and click on the following images to find out more about each group





THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

However big or small the donations, they are important. It's better to try and fail then to give up before you even start. I want to see what I can do to give something back, it's not all about me (or you) you know!!! So, I thank you, in advance, wherever you are, for choosing who to give to and for giving back.

PS - You have just over two weeks to choose your charity!

Sink or Swim, keep on kickin


I am currently working on an animation test. Life has been full of business, so it is going to take me a little longer than expected to produce my proof of concept. Within two weeks I should have a short test to post.

This is requiring me to first (re)finalize the character designs. For me this is not a small thing. But I am trying to push through as I have had months of back and forth about the characters looks.

I have trouble deciding on the exact face of the female lead, Sam. I don't want her to be too beautiful and I don't want her to be too beat up.

I may place 2 or 3 final designs of her face up for a vote on here in a few days. So, let me know if anyone's interested, and keep your eyeballs peeled!
