"Rainbow Hills" Modeled Set

The intro of this film will be a live action set, and a camera will fly through the set and into a 3d tracked castle (which is where we find King Killian)

So for about 2 and a half months I stayed Isolated in my garage building a giant set with live action waves and such. And then I built an upside down dolly system that flies the camera through the scene.

We then shot the 10 second scene using the dolly I made, but the footage was awful. SO! we shot it again but did it with a steady tracker. .... That footage was also very bad. Eventually we got a hold of a Crane dolly and that footage worked out pretty well. So what we are working on right now is tracking in the 3d footage of the castle and we are composting the footage this week! Very exciting :)

Danny Elfman

So for the past two weeks I've been trying to get composer Danny Elfman to do the narration for this movie, His managers said it looks good but he probly won't do it. SO, I took it upon myself to show him the script in person and he seemed interested, but he was too busy to actually do it :( owell.

Begining of Texturing Dogs

So I am beginning to texture the dogs now.
When I texture, I start off with a base cote of multi-colored lines wich will later be blended in with various other paints and colors.
Here is the start of one of the dogs.

Castle & Throne Room - First Draft

This is the first draft of what the throne room and castle will look like.
There will be much more colors, designs, details, and geometry. but this is just an idea to get the spacing of the room.
