Working on a 3D SHORT

2016-12-21 14:28:21 by M-Abrantes

Hey, Newgrounds! Long time no see.

I haven't been much active here this year and I felt like sharing with you guys and girls what I've been up to lately.

On October 28th, I started working on my first 3D short, which is based on a true story. It tells the story of an ordinary family whose dad is an alcoholic; whose son spends most of his time playing videogames in order to scape his sad reality at home; and whose mom can't do much to change their current situation. The short is based on a chapter that happened to me when I was about 8~10 years old and used to have a SNES. Thankfully, the alcoholic father and the submissive mother are fictional adaptations, although those ended up being the main points of the story.

My intention is to be responsible for everything you SEE on screen, from the script to character design, modeling, rigging, texturing, animation, lighting, rendering and post-production. Everything you HEAR will be done by someone else. Hopefully, I can find a composer/sound designer to come onboard this project when the time comes.

Right now, I have all 3D assets for the environments done as well as most of the storyboards. The next step is to design the three main characters in 2D, then model them in 3D. In other words, there's much work to do yet it's been so much fun. I hope this short can be displayed at the Cannes Festival some day.

Here's some shots:

There's room for easter-eggs and I'm thinking of putting a lot of references to Newgrounds in the Son's bedroom. This will be a humble homage to this awesome community that changed my life since I started working with 3D last year. :)

Thank you for inspiring me, Newgrounds. ❤
