Media Arts & Animation
The Art Institute of Austin, a branch of The Art Institute of Houston
This was an assignment for my 3D character Animation class, and the assignment was to create an animation of a character kicking a box, which was modeled by the instructor and rigged by each individual student. My motivation for this assignment was the same motivation I use for each class and that is the fact that I go to a school full of hundreds of other talented students, and how can I set myself apart from the next?
Please explain what we are seeing in your pieces and (MEDIA USED, TECHNOLOGY, OR SOFTWARE USED) how you went about creating them.
In this piece I’m using a character modeled by my instructor and rigged by myself using Autodesk Maya. I modeled all the school scenes and exterior in Autodesk 3ds Max, and i composited both into Maxon Cinema 4d. After that I imported the footage into Adobe Premiere for compositing, and last but not least, I sent that footage into Adobe After Effects for minor visual effects.
