A Case of the Munchies - 3D Animation Short
During 2012 Summer, I got the chance to take our industrial summer course with Dreamworks Animation.
Under DWA's artists' instruction, I worked with 3 of my classmates as a team of 4 to create a 30-sec 3D animation short film in 10 weeks. We went through the whole pipeline by ourself as a team from the beginning of story and visual development, to the end of lighting and rendering. I was the modeling, surfacing and lighting lead for our team.

There are lots of fun and also huge pressure during the production. I had 3 wonderful teammates. Although 10 weeks was a very short time for us and we encountered lots of troubles , everybody worked really hard and we worked great together as a team. Also, it was such an awesome experience to work with DWA's artist, they are all so professional, talent as well as open to us. We learned a lot and had a lots of fun. In the end, we were also very proud to present our short in 2012 SIGGRAPH Dailies.
Enjoy : )
