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.
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!
