Dystopia Teaser Image

Just a teaser image for my Bachelor Degree Project. It is a 6 minute Sci-Fi shortfilm created with the UDK. The film is not done yet but most of the assets and animations are done so from now on it is mostly lighting and polish work. It has to be done on the 23rd of December but it won't be released befor the school presentation.

Close up with UDK

I got my robotic fly into UDK and I did some scale tests, checking on how close I can get to small objects without clipping problems. The length of the model is just 13 unreal units. I also did some testing with the DX11 tesselation feature. The lowpoly model is 20k triangles + tesselation.
Here is a quick screengrab out of the editor.

Working on my Bachelor Project

I recently finished 6th semester. That means the upcoming is my last semester... YEAH! I already started working on my bachelor project. The best is I can do it with UDK. Its gonna be a near future scifi environment. But I plan on doing a little more than just the environment. We will see how much I get done in time.
Here a rendering of a robotic fly.

Movie release

Yeah its done! After all the work we had to do in this semester there is at least this movie that I can show. I wish I had a little more time to fix some animations and some render errors but I am still happy with the result.

Check it out

Movie almost finished

A lot of work went in to the movie project and its almost finished. Well it would be much cooler to have another month or two to just polish it but it has to be done by the end of June. But I would say for the given time of 2 and half month and having several other projects, it looks pretty cool.

Here is a render including the main character. I did the character in 3 days including the rig.
FullHd rendertime per frame is about 5-6 minutes using Mental Ray.

more movie project

I finaly found some time to work on the movie project again. I really like this project but sadly my school sucks and this is just a small side project. The big project for this semester is a FLASH game and sadly I am on of the better programmers in my group what means I am doing the Actionscript code. So I spend most time programming instead of doing cool visuals and working on the movie.
Here is a little update on the scene I already posted I think its coming along nicely but if someone reads this and has a good tip on how to make it more photoreal, let me know.

I also started on a another shot but this one needs much more work. Also this shot is not entirely done by myself. A few of the highrise buildings are done by Simon Spatzl

Back in School

As I spent the last 7 month in London working on BATMAN ARKHAM CITY, I am now back in Germany finishing my last year in school. And I finaly have something to post. We have to do a short movie again. This time we are going for a realistic look and below is a first WIP rendering of the set. So far the scene is all done by myself and about one week of work. Hopefully this movie doesn't turn out as horrible as our first try in making a short.
