Class 6: The End continues

Hey mom and couple of other random blog readers! (I joke, I have hundreds and hundreds of loyal followers).

My mentor, Sean, picked up line n3 from last week! Which means I'll be doing a Italian Gangster shot for the next few weeks. Thank you Marcello Alvarez, friend and AM alumni, for helping me shooting videoref for it!

After making a rough layout for that, it was time to pimp up the King shot with some more adjustments and make it all fancy and pretty with the render. It might not be final yet, but it has never been any closer!

AND (busy week, had to take some breakfasts for champions this week) I still made the first adjustments on the "Bad Luck" shot, and started to do the missing part. I'll keep the video of that a secret until next week, I think there's not enough new stuff in there worth an upload! Ironically, that's the shot I wrote more for in the blog. Stupid Fonz!

Here it goes, all together:

The End begins

Class 6! The end is near.
So I couldn't be more motivated right now. Week 1 and 2 are goners, and I think I've never had such a busy start of the term! My mentor is Sean Sexton (DreamWorks) and he's awesome! If animation was football, he would play for Barcelona or Real Madrid. In his critiques, he's awfully honest, which is exactly what I wished for class 6.
So the goal of this class is to put together our work, spice it up with one or two new shots, mix it all up and come out with the best showreel we can. My mission for the week was to improve "The King" shot, and start thinking on ideas for what Imma gonna do next! I've also built a new whole scenario for the King. Check it all out below. Ciao!
