08 Adobe Student Film VFX

Here are some VFX ideations I did for our ANI 118B group short film for Adobe (sponsored by Imagination Lab in Adobe Research). In the beginning, there were 5 groups of about 10-15 people. Then towards the middle of the semester people from different groups helped out the other groups. The group I was in, Group 2 "Enlighten", had to come up with a visual story about the future of education. There were many ideas but our group decided to do a lot of holograms and visual effects. I was part of the modeling team, because we decided to go with the 2D route there were no 3D elements involved. Because we were struggling with perspective Michael and I did some 3D mock ups of the school. Later, I was put in charge of the visual effects and the multiplane effects. I had to learn After Effects within a week. Throughout my semester, I had so much work to do that I needed an assistant so Pattie went ahead and gave me Alvin C. as my assistant and I became the VFX lead for the film. Anyways, here are some of my ideas for the film throughout the semester. Cheers.
