Seems like I have more announcements than some actual stuff, well life is busy
Here are some new updates and some big chances:
Let me start with big chances first. I have finally decided to merge my this blog (http://aabidlive.wordpress.com) with my old blogger blog (http://aabid21.blogspot.com) which haven’t been used in a while and expand it. This merger will take place on my website sub domain at http://blog.aabiddhamani.com. I had already taken first step and setup the blog there and transferred over this blog, still a lot of stuff to do. Remember to follow my new blog to get updates.
I know I haven’t updated my website in a while, but trust me it will be soon.
Some new animations update coming next week. Yes, its my Animation Mentor – Animals & Creatures: Class 1 progress reel, look out for it and I’ll love to get your views.
In the mid of 2011, I worked on 5 Nokia Symbian Belle’s promotional videos of which only 3 used. My main role on this project was to animate the phones, create display screen setups and rough edits. It was a big project with tighter deadline.
In Nokia Belle 700 (Helen) & 701 (Zeta) video, all the animations regarding cell phones was done by me and was rendered and composite by my colleagues at MediaFreaks.
In Nokia Belle 600 (Cindy) video, all the animations regarding cell phones was done by me, except from 0:28 to 1:04 which was done by my colleague. The lighting and rendering was outsourced to other company.
After a long delay and busy months, I had created a scheduling for my work. Here is what you can except in the coming year.
There will be a slight update to my website, with new updated links to new projects.
New look for the website.
New animations and updated reel.
Non animation related stuff.
I guess I can only act on the following stuff for now. Can’t promise much as I have been disappointed in resuming my short every year. Anyhow, thanks for stopping by, and see you later with some new stuff
Its been a year to this project on which I had worked. I was hired for a week at H2O Animation to do a minute of animation. The animation itself is not that good or refined due to time and rig constraints.
Is been almost 11 months since the competition been over on facebook. Involving in such competition was quiet challenging as many of the great animators were there too. It was a great learning experience.
The competition was organized by Mass Animation with collaboration with DC Universe Online. There were two categories, one game animation and the other for game trailer. I do submitted few clips, however one of them got lucky enough to get selected by the Jury and was then further refined to get it ready for final trailer. To view the full trailer, please refer to my previous post.
The game itself has been little delayed to the early 2011. Check out DC Universe Online blog and website for more information.
