It’s been a long time since we’ve published anything in reference to Gauntlet so we decided to go ahead and start the new year off with another nifty Production Log! We’ve been working on and off with the project since our last production shoot back in July. Since then, we’ve also learned new techniques in compositing our shots and to smooth out video noise. Our plans for 2014 all entail post work on the project. 3D sets, compositing, green screen work, and motion graphics will all encompass this year. Not only do we have our hands full with post work, we’re also going to be learning from a website named digitaltutors.com. Our aim is to not only fine tune our skills with After Effects, but to also learn programs like 3D Max and Maya in order to create our 3D sets for the film.
For your enjoyment we’ve added a few screen shots from our film that have been new since July 2013. The first two snapshots are from a newscast montage sequence reporting that two boys are missing. The last two are our designs for certain death scenes from different characters. We honestly would like to have more time on working on the project, however we’re thrilled with all the other opportunities that our freelancing will provide.
