This is a personal project intended to help with my 3D classes at the college. It has a little bit of everything in it, so it is a good example for the different concepts and techniques involved in every aspect of 3D production.
It was also the subject of a presentation I made at the 2015 effectsMTL Conference, on the “Ten Essential Steps of 3D Animated Scenes“.
The scene was produced using Maya and After Effects, and rendered in mentalRay.
The render time was at 1h per frame on a six-core processor for the 1080HD version.
You can download the 1080HD version here (Right-Click and Save As).
In July 2015, this project was awarded the
3DTotal Excellence Award.
