My Early (and Amatuerish) entry into 3D Animation

oldskool3DIn Highschool and during my Diploma year after, I created some 3D animations using 3D Studio Max.  Being the ‘eye for detail’ guy I am, I can’t help but laugh at how dodgy these old videos are!

But I still enjoy checking out my work back then.  For some reason, I had this obsession with goaty-sporting aliens wearing headphones & doing kung fu…

…didn’t everyone? No? OK, just me 😉

The first? My 3D Alien!

You remember the whole ‘goaty-sporting aliens wearing headphones & doing kung fu’ I mentioned quite literally seconds ago.  Yeah here it is…

3D ‘Idiot Box’

The next is a TV I modelled.  Yep, back then it was CRT TV’s, no flat screen LED’s just the old fashioned idiot box!

Finally, the main event: Bushi!

Toward the end of my diploma we had a group project – so we did a 3D short animation.

Being obsessed with ninja’s and violence (I was 18) I got together with Mark Filippelli, Kadin Poulter and Katrina Young to create the short below.

I will warn you, it’s not exactly the polished animation I hoped it would be, but it’s still fun to watch!
