I've wanted to learn to 3-D animate my entire life. It took a seat in the back of the bus for most of my time here thus far, as filmmaking was a more effective means of creating for me. 5 Years ago when this short film idea came to me, I knew it would require far too great a budget to be feasible between the 3-D animation and many more effects based scenes. I put the idea in the back of my head and went on for years realizing the idea was becoming more and more important and relevant, as opposed to less... I couldn't let it take up space in my head anymore. Finally it was time for me to acquire this skill in order to bring this to life. I've spent the last 6 months learning about animation while I'm not shooting scenes for the film. This video was a draft rendering I did to test if my model was rigged and weight painted correctly. Even though this was a flawed first draft, it was still unbelievable to see something come to life from literally a single vertices. More importantly I realized I am capable of getting the effects to where they will need to be in order to bring this epic film to life. I am excited to try to find this film a home on one of the major streaming platforms.
