Independent Film with Zbrush Sculpt and applied Motion Capture
I would love some comments and views on this film. It is a short family friendly film. I create the alien using Softimage and Zbrush. So Zbrushers I would love comments on compositing and sculpting if you feel inclined.
It is my first attempt at taking a concept alien from sculpt to completed film myself. I did all aspects of the film with exception of the soundtrack and live audio. It could be better for sure, but the live action footage was shot in one day and with kids so I achieved a lot with a little.
My basic workflow was: Wrote the screenplay, did cinematography live action with a stand in, edited for timings , motion tracked the footage as needed, clean plated the stand in out where necessary, inserted background and added camera shake where necessary, blocked out sculpt in Softimage, imported base mesh into zbrush, sculpted, textured, painted in zbrush, rigged with species in Softimage, selected motion capture, composited, sent off for soundtrack.
Thanks for taking the time to comment or watch. I do appreciate it.
If you happen to know of any good film festivals I can put it in or sites that might embed it, please let me know.
