That´s the animation I´ve been working on at Bird studios
it´s done in one month by Siaw yaw, Andrew and Myself using Maya and Shake.
I had the pleasure to learn a few things about graphic animation in maya, render layers and I´ve started to learn the art of Composite in Shake, what a brilhant soft. I used it mainly to adjust the final color,andrew did the wrap transitions. It´s nice to have control of all pieces that make the image without having to render all again.

DMCA Showreel jun07

DMCA Showreel 07 from Dmca and Vimeo.My reel, straigh after the course, i´ve rendered a few pieces and fixed major problems, but when i realized i was waisting so much time to get things better, fixing issues from when i didn´t know any about graph ed, so i decied that i will try new animations instead polishing my first go in those matters.
move on, i remeber what i´ve learnt.
I´m currently desesperated looking for a job, a full time, half, free lance, animator, rigger, modeller, whatever within character fun.
I had many good feedback from everybody who has seen my stuff, thanks all and cheers for those who help me in all the way till here.
Special thanks to Alexandre Beraldo, composer , Rob Boy Right the sound design and Cako who has given me directions and introductions to the right people in the industry.
And off course to my wife, thanks pati, it wouldn´t be possible without you.

Final Assesment - Short film "Cabron"

Yes, I´ve done it.
That´s the movie I´ve presented at my final assesment, they seemed to like it only one camera moves i was recomend to change.
i´ve literary spent all my time animating, I have NOT done any render, only playbast, YET. That´s gonna be my home work mission till september, when we gonna have a formal screening at National Gallery, so them i´ll have a better look to my film and i´ll correct a few things.
sem mais delongas, here a few stills and the cut of the assesment. it´s too long intro and outro, gonna cut it.
thanks all for the advices and patiente with me.
I spent 2 months on this project, plus one month of research and storyboard, the preproduction stage took me about 3 weeks, modelling, rigging...The rest of the time i animated, 24/7.
The sound was done by, Rob Boy Right and Alexandre Beraldo, the guys were really creative and dedicated to do any changes i asked, it was interesting to see the atmosfere growing with the music, and rob found really fancy mexican noises. I Thanks this guys, many thanks.
and that´s ONLY the begging, the force is with use to say..hihihi

First pass

Yeah, another 10 days working pretty hard, long hours trying to get all the key downs, all antecipations, extremes, holds. As well suggeting same overlap and started offseting the limbs.
now, I thinks it´s time to look and decide, wether it´s going to be this or i have to do minor changes, because after next stage, it will be difficult to change thinghs.
I have to cut same scenes, for two reasons, first, is it extreme necessary to tell the story? and do I have time to animated it?
So as i rather try to do a proper animation i´ve cutted out the last scene and the first,,ahhhh, i cried too. but it wouldn´t be possible, human speaking..
I still have to rethink about a few poses and as soon as i get the soldier movs right i will duplicate it and place.
I found very hard to animate the body language whe the general is speaking.
Yes that´s about it, i hope you enjoy and i have energy enough to finish it.

sc 20 born to die

Bloody hell, my friends always said, daniel you are nuts.
,,,I´ve studied hard ainmation and stuffs to bring a character to life, and then... in the final project i kill the main character...uhha, what for all this work then?..hihihhihiahhahahahahuhuahauhauhau,,baaa
again, the fcurves are there, untouched, i wanna make the steps, really heavy, i think i got the time right here, just need to ajust the hit on the ground and the hold in the air, typical stuff for the graph.
cabron cames from the last shot where he was the one left standing after his enourmous sneeze, he cames just to connect the next shot looking left out screen, where zé is laughing.
Thanks for the advices, i´m thirsty to try all. thnaks guys. power and hope for all, We can doit!

i´m having trouble with this scene, it looks too mechanical for, and the time, i can´t get it right. I´ve tried the fall slower..
i´ve simplified, just a hit on the shoulders oand consequentively on the next but with small power.
cabron lands standind because next scene his walks into the screen.
i´m still working on the gun falling and havent touched the curves.
Please tell me what you fell, what doesn´t look right for ya, please, thanks.

I´ve aplied the map only in color chanel and the black white blured version in ambiente color chanel, in the uniforme I´ve also aplied the BW in bump chanel, but this is really rought, i would like to know more about in which chanels should i aplly each map???? someone,?? well i´d love some ideas.


Wednesday, May 2, 2007


Yeah, these are my characters for the film "Cabron".
I´ve done them in about a week, from modelling to rigging. working long nights drinking my lovely port, it´s been very confident process, only doing againg things i learnt during the second term. it gave me time to try new things, like facial controls, wich i hadn´t in the previous rig.
Yeah, I´m currentely working on the texture maps while clean up the rigs.
I hope you like and as soon as i finish the maps i gonna post it, it´s been funny painting on photoshop for the first time.
cheers everyone, see you El!...hihihihih.
