Hook A Duck Behind The Scenes

In December 2018 I embarked on creating my first short animation using Blender 3D software. (Version 2.7)

To celebrate my accomplishments I’ve put this page together detailing my behind the scenes work. It includes initial renders, animation tests, and concept art.

I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I do!

Initial renders, and tests of lighting!

My first animation test! This render took 3 hours overnight to fully render, and I’ve added in some test sound fx and ambience.

The opening scene is being rendered as I type this (Feb 7th 2019). It’s 200 frames, and is looking like it’s going to take about 15-20 hours to render. It’s a pretty complicated shot, so hopefully other shots should take less RAM power!
