Day 257: Professor Undercog’s new wheel - My friend Charlie (Charlotte) created Professor Undercog last year for her graduation film “The Mechanics of Underwear” which you can watch here: https://vimeo.com/32208586 
I asked Charlie if she would like him to make a cameo in Pip’s Sketch show and she accepted, unfortunately he didn’t have a wheel or legs, so after a bit of consultation we decided I’d give him a new wheel in the style of an old penny farthing bike or something along those lines, although it’s now more like a unicycle… So where else better to put him than the scrap yard, thats where you can find all kinds of old stuff to repair yourself… if you’re a robot… a human one would be pretty disgusting tbh!

Film is Finished!

Well actually the film has been finished for quite a while now but I haven’t managed to update this blog to confirm that! A big thanks to everyone that was involved and to to those who attempted to keep me sane throughout (you know who you are). I can pleasantly say that I got a first for it, wooo. And am now graduating with a first class degree! wooo again :D

Anyway back to film for which this blog is dedicated to. The degree show last month seemed to go well and the general response was very postive. I will later post some photos of the crazy display I created but for now here is the poster.

My tutors have suggested a bunch of festivals and such to enter, so I have been trying to make progress with the applications. Because of entering film festivals I haven’t uploaded the final thing to vimeo or youtube but for now please check out my vimeo profile: http://vimeo.com/cbolton

A couple of old test comps - lighting will be completely redone and the AO tweaked etc.

Factory Environment - Background

Ok well heres a quick update on the factory environment that will be the background/setting for the animation.

The main render pass as it is at the moment - the lighting may still be adjusted.

And a quick ambient occlusion pass

A quick (and basic) animation test:

Animatic Version 6 - Finally I have managed to upload this, despite the fact that it was finished a while ago and the new version is almost finished (probably tomorrow).

Alot of the pacing is too fast still, there needs to be more pauses and some added and adjusted shots. The 2D animated section needs to be tested along with the 3D tests to come.
