I also found it difficult to contact Ryan Jones, my Composer for about two weeks too. I have been chasing him up on Facebook and he called me today also. He has also been busy on several other projects and is committed. I feel like the sound team is solid and I have no doubt that they will do great work.
Send Jamie Romp (SFX) & Ryan Jones (Composer):
- Visual style & concept art
- Examples of music/ SFX we like/ don't like
- Script (by Wednesday 17th October)
- Storyboards/ Animatic
Today I also had a go at lighting a car in maya. I think I did a pretty good job. below is a render of the work so dar. Luckily Luke Jefferson, a recent graduate of your course, was passing by and gave me some tips on lighting workflow using mental ray's IPR to speed things up. My aim is to put it into a compositing reel. Below is a render of what I have so far I will finish it tomorrow.
|Note: I only did the lighting (and tweaked the textures)|
