Thesis is Finished

Chloe Gets a Pet on Vimeo

May I present to you my thesis film: Chloe Gets a Pet. This film took me 30 weeks to create from concept to render. Josh Piejko was a big help. He modeled the characters and props, Brittney Lee designed the characters. I learned a lot about rigging and lighting on this film. I used a broken rig technique in the bird to get it to stretch and squash when needed. Let me tell you that certainly helps a lot in 3d. It doesn't limit you like a normal rig does. If I need the bird to reach across the table and grab something, I can do that without having to worry about it not going the distance. Thanks to Greg Smith for teaching me about utility nodes.
