Catching a few lobsters...
/ Matt Mlodzienski Week 4 PPJ
January 30, 2017

This week I replaced the ship in the asteroid field shot with a production one, and redid the animations. Now that the rigged ship is in, I could do things like use the wiggle controller for finer movements, as well as move the arms. I also worked to retime the campfire opening shot, so that the ship took more time to take off.

I also worked to come up with designs for the posters for our short. I’ve been favoring a stark, nearly black and white style. I accidentally came up with a cool design while messing with effects and layers on a procedural lens flare, that looks like a line of planets ending at a star (or a supernova?). It reminds me of the golden disc that is with Voyager.

Pros: Animating is a nice break from Mari.

Cons: Maya crashes constantly in the asteroid scene and I can’t figure out why.

Lobster Fact: British rock band “The Who” is made up entirely of lobsters.
