Finish Line

Hey guys! So after a very emotional and physical journey to what institutions call...thesis, Jessenia and I are "done". I put the quotes because there are so many tweaks and shots that just didn't render correctly. Although we have submitted already to our department at the School of Visual Arts, we are still tweaking. We are preparing for festivals now. If you are interested in coming to our second screening, you can come down to the Visual Arts Theater on 23rd street between 8th and 9th avenue here in New York City at 7pm. More screenings hopefully coming soon. For now we tease you with our 3D print of Marla that we graciously got from our Zbrush professor here at SVA. The bug coming soon and videos of the recording session. Also worth noting that Jessenia and I are currently freelancing at Framestore NYC and that has taken up some of our time. Cheers.

C.R.E.A.M. get the money!

Just a note out there that team Luciernaga has won the Alumni Scholarship Award from the School of Visual Arts.  A grant given to students from alumni that feel their final needs the financial assistance. This news was given to us on February 12 but I just recently came across the post on the sva website so I wanted to share. We used 75% of the grant on musicians and recording studio. So watch out for a teaser trailer for our thesis and clips from the recording.

Look out for Jesse Flores - BFA Computer Art

Here is a promotional poster for our thesis! It is coming down to the wire and we are ramping up on renders and compositing. Here is a quick taste of Marla IN COLOR and a matte painting. Spread the word!

Pre-Viz v028

Here is the latest Pre-Viz with current animation. Hope you enjoy! Jessenia and I are currently finishing up any texturing/shading left. I have started final lighting on most of the town. Although we will not leak those images out yet until they are nice and sexy.

Lets paint the town!

So during the holiday break I took the chance to complete the textures and shaders for the town homes and stores. Also had the opportunity to clean up anything like geometry, scenes and making sure things get referenced in correct. I hope you enjoy.
