version 2

Version 3 is in the making. Using Maya 2013 camera sequencer I will be able to render out my edit.

4/16/2014 I am still working on Version 3, the more I work on it the more challenges occur. I have set up what is called an ubercam, which is suppose to render out my whole edit  but I am unsure how to render it out. While I research how to render out my edit, I have decided to work on one shot. By working on my one shot it will allow me to focus on my atmosphere and textures.

animatic/ Virtual movie making

 Making animatics. Firsts I blocked out the scene in Maya 2013, then render out my shots,and  import them into  After Effects. I then export .mov files from AE and import them into Avid Media Composer. the process take hours. While i waited on renders I learned that i can edit my scene in Maya which means I could edit my shots then batch render. I have also learned how to use a script that allows me to render out UDK scenes which renders out scenes faster than Maya.

Tools with in my Workflow; Final Draft, Maya 2013, ZBrush, PS, AE, UDK, Avid Media Composer, and Logic.

Im Possible

I am often told its impossible to do something, so I do it. Nothing is impossible to me, I have the imagination of creativity. Truth is I make a lot of people mad. In my opinion when a mad person is speaking, they are speaking out loud to themselves. I base my theory of what i hear myself say when I advise others. I notice that the words that i use are actually word that i needed to hear. so when i get mad or when someone uses their anger towards me i refocus my energies and think of positive solutions to figure out the best plan of action. breathing and listing knowing the are speaking to them selves...

its a fun process being able to reach different milestone

Its a fun process being able to reach different milestones.Weighting out my options, i learned the difference between producing an Animatic and rendering out separate scenes to convert into video... while both are good tools to tell a story, one is more cost effective than the other...
My first attempt of an Animatic set me back, it didn't advance the quality of my productivity.But by doing so, I was able to grasp the idea of my second version. Rendering out frames is time consuming but it will allow me to create a .mov to edit. 
I am going to attempt another version of  an Animatic. this version will be similar to a directors hand book or sizzle reel.
