Synopsis


Synopsis: A girl (Alcomie) and an alien girl (Kel) are on a mission to sneak into a research lab with their robot (Wob) to steal an object. During the mission Alcomie starts texting Kel about an important event happening in thirty minutes. Soon they get caught by the guard robots and they have to escape. In the end you’ll find out what the important event is. I will create my characters and rooms in Maya and I will also use Photoshop, and After Effects.

New Sketch

 





 I drew this yesterday instead of studying for my midterm.  This is a character I recently created.  I don't have a name for her yet, but I've had so much fun drawing her robot arm.  I never drew a lot sci-fi stuff till I made my thesis.  After my midterms and when I have time I would like to draw more images of this character.

Movement Test

video
I'm trying to fix the scene with Kel throws W.O.B. up into the air and to get the movement right I filmed myself throwing a ball into the air, but I can't throw very good with my left arms.

Video of Scene1-3

scene1-3 from Amanda Freeman on Vimeo.

Where I live we were hit with a large snow storm and I was stuck inside, so I made this video with my finished scenes 1, 2, and 3. I've already seen things I need to fix. Also on frame 00:00:23:00 there is a frame missing. It's of the horned robot I call B.O.W. It turns and flows down the hallway.

Al and W.O.B. Drawing

  So I have been snowed into my apartment all day and my Maya is being weird so I drew this drawing of Alcomie and W.O.B.  

I just realized I forgot to draw Alcomie's goggles on her head.

Design Sheets


 
    Here are my design sheets for a few of the signs and computer screens in my animation. It took me a while to create the alien symbols and the designs for my set, but I feel like the hard work paid off.  I even created my own alien writing in a few of the signs and yes they do have messages in them.

Scene 1 3D Animation

Okay this is a really bad, cut together, video of what scene one looks like. I still have a lot of work that I still need to do on the animation and also fix a lot of the facial expressions.

Fun Animation

W.O.B and B.O.W from Amanda Freeman on Vimeo.

This is a fun little animation I did with my W.O.B. and B.O.W models and I think I will put it at the end of my credits. I love this two characters. Even though that don't have faces they have fun personalities.

Thesis scene 1 from Amanda Freeman on Vimeo.

This is a short little scene from my thesis film. It's the scene where Kel and W.O.B. are startled by the beep of Kel's communicator. There is one mistakes. The glowing container is not suppose to flicker like that. I think I have the reflect setting on it a little to high.
