NCCA Second Year – Group Project

This is a short animation I worked on during my time at the NCCA Bournemouth.

My contribution to the project includes:

  • Rigging
  • Geometry / Rendering Pipeline
  • Technical Director
  • Render Wrangling
  • Compositing

As a lead Technical Director on this project, I had to write scripts and tools for Maya (predominantly in Python) and to fix the all-too-common problem encountered on a daily basis during production. I also wrote render management scripts for the Unix shell in order to create a simplified render distribution system (we had no render farm at the university).

The project took about 2-3 months, with other coursework running in parallel.
