2017 - Powering Up

Just before Xmas 2016 my son, Oliver, wrote to me asking if I could make a 'Power Rangers clip'.  So I jumped straight on it.

This has taken a full 3 months, start to finish.  This includes a total, over 2 PC's, 12 weeks of rendering.
The fight scene took an entire month to put together as one single animation, this was a pain as Poser would mess up a previous pose/footwork constantly.  I would have to backtrack a lot to rework poses that had previously taken forever to get right, this was a massive hinder to the workflow.
The Command Centre interior/exterior was sculpted in Curvy 3D, along with the robotic parts and the hands and feet of Alpha.  The idea was for Alpha to be a blend of the original design and the new movie version of the character.  All these parts for Alpha were attached to a Poser figure I deformed for easy posing.

The total cost for making this short is in the region of £250, this doesn't include any of my own time, it's purely based on resources and the extra cost electricity for 24/7 rendering.

Making movies doesn't come cheap.

August 2017

The Agent, after over 3 years in production, finally gets released!!


Plans are already out for the sequel, The Agent: New Dawn, which will be fully 3D animated. The turnaround should be a lot faster.  I'm always learning and personally believe in always learning something new.  These new techniques will be applied to the next movie.


Onwards and upwards!
