Like many other people, my frist true love was Jessica Rabit.

How it's done:

I was just browsing through the many pages of the internet when i stumbled across a picture of Jessica Rabit "untooned". I later found a blog called pixeloo which has some really cool photoshop work on it. I've seen other photoshop "speed painting" before, but I really liked how pixeloo uses images from existing photos and picks them apart and morphs them into the desired shapes.

Wall-E A Pixar Feature Film

In the future mankind will have left Earth for greener pastures. Leaving behind one robot to clean up after them. Jonny 5... I mean Wall-E is that robot.

After 700 years of solitude Wall-E he develops a personality and finds the world around him fascinating. Then one day a spaceship lands and changes Wall-Es life forever.

He falls in love with Eve, A more high-tech robot from a diffrent planet. Eve strangely resembles a Sentry Gun from Portal... but has the ablity to fly.

Wall-E then follows Eve back to her home and discovers many facinating things on his adventure.

Although very little has been released about Wall-E the films hype seems to be mounting even though the film is 3 months away from it's world release. Because Wall-E and the other main characters, Eve and M-O, are robots they don't talk. Which means the story is driven along by the characters movements, which are very slapstick.

The first released footage of Wall-E was done during the Super Bowls' half-time commercial advertisments inwhich Woody and Buzz Lightyear, from Toy Story, talk about him as they themselfs are sat watching the Super Bowl. Advertising since then has grown slowly as the release of the film gets closer with life size cardboard cut-outs of Wall-E popping up over Cinemas worldwide.

I'm really looking forward to this film as it looks like pixar are tring new 3D developements out such as smoke and dust clouds. Also it reminds me of a more upbeat version of A short film my brother made called Sad Robot.

Box Idea

It's just occurred to me that I haven't posted anything on my box on my blog. Well at last the long wait is over.

The idea is when it loads you click the screen to start a small movie clip. This clip will be of you walking up to the ammo crate and opening it. Once it is open there will be five objects inside that I think relate to me and my identity.

Once you click on one of the objects two black boxes will drop down, one with a description of the object and the other of the object.

Finally Got Around To It

This is the 3D model I made for my Identities project.

It's been along time...

I just started to check out my blog and other MM students blogs again and i'm disapointed with myself with my lack of postings recently.

I had a great easter break, even though I was working for most of the time, and now i'm ready to really crack down and get on with my work. From talking to Will and checking his blog I can really see how far along he's come with his 3D work and I aim to follow in his footsteps and improve my 3D skills dramically aswell by using online tutorials.

A massive blow has happend to my machinima project (see here and here) when I found out that my halls have blocked mosting gaming ports. This means I can't develop the characters I want to star in my machinima, search for suitable locations to shoot and most importantly with not being able to log into a game when making machinima, I can't film any of it. So for now it looks like this project is going to be held back untill the summer holidays or even untill next term. I'm going to use this time to develop the script, make story boards and do research into my favorite machinimas. Such as how they record the voice actors and foly sounds.
