I will be taking on the role as Creative/Art Director on a Short Web Series created by a close friend of mine Lehr Beidelschies. Lehr is half creator of the website Everything is Terrible.
My role is to help Lehr coordinate the production process. Lehr and I will work together to put the course together for the other students (Summer Project Bluelight for DePaul University 10 – 20 Students). I will also be helping with the modeling, shooting, texturing and lighting. The film centers around two young men that buried their porn collection. Years later they come back to find that it has grown into a city: Sex City.
So far we have begun by creating a Dropbox that is organized with various folders containing all data/documents/notes. This week we will going through each building and setting up a shot breakdown. Almost all the elements in this film will be created in 3d software rendered out and used as plates to shoot against. We will be using Maya 2012 in participation with a small group of 10 – 20 students. It was nice joining the project and finding out he already did much of the pre-production (look-book, concepts and designs) work needed for us to keep our schedule.
Today I modeled a simple primitive scale of the city which you can see above in the gallery. I will be keeping you posted here throughout the process.
