During my MA at the Royal College of Art I have been investigating 3D computer animation from the point of view of the solo animator / film creator. Where as many small scale CGI ventures tend to focus on a small, highly technical arena of action, my films work with simpler animation but on a larger scale. My final year film, 'the Woman who Married a Pig', features many characters and epic action using only the simpler tools of the open source 3D animation software Blender 3D. Future work will continue to look at how the individal can be empowered through 3D computer image making.
My final year film - The woman who married a pig, a tale of power and vanity, is inspired by the paintings of Giovanni Di Paulo.
Unlike the huge teams and organisation of Hollywood computer generated films, I am interested in where 3D CG stands with individual film makers in teams as small as one. My technique is unashamedly computer generated and I am interested in what could be thought of as the charm of CG.
I have been working with open source software, with the support of their community, to make a film which is more about narrative than technology.
Relationships is a non too serious look at when a miteā?Ts symbiotic relationship with its host. Events on the micro-level affect the macro as this delicate balance is ruined by consumer lust. The film was made using the open source 3D software Blender.
