“Lumin is an animated short film created by students at the Columbus College of Art. Designed over a period of four months, this eerie film tells the story of a young boy and his escape from dozens of monsters who pursue him for one thing: his light.”
Lumin has gone on to win multiple awards, and has been screen both nationally and internationally. Additional details: http://luminfilm.blogspot.com/.
Some Highlights of my work as TD and 3d Supervisor on this project:
- Helped guide the initial concept/design based on what we could/couldn’t do with the 3d team
- Created a 3d lighting to 2d painting workflow to allow us to create smooth lighting effects as the 2d lights moved in the scene
- Created a glob deformation system to animate 3d oil monsters
- Assisted other 3d members and compositor in implementing the above features
