the 3d machine

Yesterday we held a pre-screening for our financial sponsor(the Rotterdam filmfund) of our upcoming short film 'the 3d-Machine'.
We showed them the whole film which is not yet completed, but in a viewable state.
And we showed an already a short sequence in finished material in 3d!
The people were really enthousiastic about the film.
And thats great to hear since we've been workin for a little while now on this project.
Below you'll see some great images of the final film to be.

Production update

Production seems to go pretty smooth on our short film: the 3d machine. Last weeks production meeting was very promising. Here's a list of the total crew:
Animator and director: Joost van den Bosch and Erik Verkerk
Producer: Marlou Rutten
Background artist: Jelle Gijsberts
Composer: Irene Vivanco
Foley artist: Jos van Galen
Coach: Raymond van der Kaaij

Animation seems to go a lot faster than expected, about a third is already done. In two weeks Jelle will start doing backgrounds, and around that time Irene will start work on the score.

Below's a gag we were thinking of puting in the film, but it didn't make it...

First animated shot

Yeah woohoo, the first shot animated!!! Only 124 to go. We animated this scene just to see it the flashkit works, well, yes it works. For this shot to be final it still needs a background, effect animation, 3d compositing and a stereo-anaglyphic render to make it pop out of your screen!
