Here is my short film I made while attending Animation Mentor. I finally spent some time learning Mental Ray in Maya and rendered a final version. Click on 'older posts' to see the entire short film process, you can go all the way back to my video pitch to my Mentor, through the rough storyboard animatic, layout and into animation.... They're posted in chronological order starting with the latest version.
My Mentors who guided me through this process were Cal Brunker (House of Cool) and Sean Sexton (DreamWorks). Both gave some great insights and ideas for making my film what it is!
