JURASSIC JESS

This is a short film I directed about young girl named Jess, who loves dinosaurs and exploring museums... even the restricted areas! 

Made during my 3rd year on the BA(Hons) Animation course (Sept 2011 – May 2012), working on this film helped me to start learning how to create a 3D animated film, including how to use Maya software.

 

My roles included:

  • Director

  • Research

  • Design

  • Script Writing

  • Blendshapes

  • Animation

  • Props: design, modeling and texturing 

  • After Effects Compositing.


Software used: Autodesk Maya, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects.
