LOL Cinematic Animation Exercise Part 1

Morning All! So recently I have finished a short personal project; an animation based on one of Riot Game’s League of Legends Cinematics. A New Dawn was released in 2014, when I was still a young and impressionable CG generalist exploring a career as an animator.

PRODUCTION DIARY OF [CENSORED DUE TO NDA] – WEEK 4 – Smacking Ones Head Against UE4.

Calamity Joe, the smart git, chose to do all of his Cinematic work directly in UE4. I mean, ok, he is a young intern fellow, full of optimism and willingness to learn. So the opposite of myself.

PRODUCTION DIARY OF [CENSORED DUE TO NDA] – WEEK 2.2 – Motion Capture Fun!

I have always been quite an active fella. Sure, my skills at a sport or a martial art were never up to scratch (I downright refused to play football during PE at school) but my preference was for the arts; drama and dance, something with a little more storytelling (though I struggle with contemporary danceContinue reading “PRODUCTION DIARY OF [CENSORED DUE TO NDA] – WEEK 2.2 – Motion Capture Fun!”
