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.
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.
After its release on 15th June at E3, the trailer of DCUO/Mass Animation had been onlined. It had revealed all the winners of DCUO/Mass Animation – animation contest which was held on December 2009 – January 2010.
It is really a great moment for me to see me name in the credits. Its an honour to being the only one from Pakistan. My shot is the facial closeup shot of Jokers laugh, though it is for a few frames but its really worth it 🙂
I would really like to thank Mass Animation, DC Universe Online, Sony Entertainment, Reel FX and all the sponsors and individuals who had involved in the great competition journey. Thank you.
