I worked on Ice Age as a Modeling Technical Assistant. My duties included rendering, quality-checking, internal website maintenance, file backlot organization, environmental model creation/modification under the direction of the story and modeling departments.
Ice Age was created by a team of 150 animators and staff, using Alias|Wavefront Maya on SGI Octanes and rendered using Blue Sky Studio’s proprietary rendering engine, CGI Studio.
Maya for animation/rendering, After Effects for editing/compositing, Illustrator/Photoshop for textures, Soundedit for audio.
My student animation reel, done at Tisch
Synopsis: A moonlit look into a children’s nursery reveals the fate of a few hapless participants in the day’s play.
Free for download, commercial or non-commercial use. Quid Pro Quo: Many of these were done when I was either a student or in a mad rush for a project with an unforgiving budget; If you’re downloading for a serious project, budget some time for some cleanup. That being said, maybe they can save you a few minutes or hours.
