Here are some of the final renders of the film. I only have one room left to render, the blue room, and then to assemble the title sequence. Here is a sampling of the final look.

The last leg of the journey

Posted in Uncategorized on April 5, 2011 by quasirella

Well, here it is, the last month before graduate school is over. Rendering is under way, and All I have to do now is place the composited renders into the finished and timed animatic. Here is a render of the Purple Rococo room, which has been the hardest from the beginning. I feel a lot better now that it is almost finished, because I had a lot of trouble with the look of this room. I really don’t care for purple, so I had trouble finding something I actually thought worked, and so the colors have changed a lot. But, I finally came up with something I like. And, here it is.

Rendering my youth away…

I often imagine a faraway future when there is no rendering, but everything is real time rendering, and I won’t be spending my better years in front of an electronic box. But, until then, here is another render, of the garden scene, a close up of cherry blossoms.

and here is the video of this close up of the cherry blossoms in my garden.

Here is the intro to the garden room,

Here are the images and clips for my faculty review.  Below are images of the lighting for the rooms, and also layout and sound.  Now, I only have to tweak a few things, render and do final compositing.

and a link to my current layout:

Here is a  quick renders of the red room and a clip from Pan’s Labyrinth, which has the creepy feel, I am looking for, mixed with a seductive red.

The Green Room

I have been working on the green room and I made a few test renders.  This is the final look I think I am going for, except maybe just a bit darker.  Also here is a quick render of a closeup of the Feast in the red room.


Red Room Update

Posted in Uncategorized on February 8, 2011 by quasirella

I redid the fireplace in the red room with statues reminiscent of Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast, with two figures holding up the mantle.  Since this is the room for seduction, I have been thinking of adorning the figures as Ishtar, who represents promiscuity and sex.  It references this old sculpture of Ishtar.  When we reach the fireplace, and turn to look at the painting above it, the statues will turn their heads towards us.  When we back away to exit, they may start to reach out.

Here’s the Sculpted fireplace in the red room.
