Lots of Robots
is an incredible 3D animated creation myth being entirely created by
solo animation and sound artist Andy Murdock (a longtime FmH reader)
at home. A new LOR Quicktime and DVD release is out; it can be viewed
only several clicks away from the page at this link. LOR, a work in
progress, will eventually be a feature length film.
Eric is rad
The newest version of Lots of Robots is out!
Andy Murdock has added 2min:22sec of a totally rad intro to the beginning
and 6min:40sec of the continuing, 2nd installment, bringing the whole
saga so far to 14 minutes. I suppose that doesn't sound like a whole
lot, but this guy already has a professional 3D-animating day job, so
this is all the 3D modeling, rigging, texturing, animation, compositing,
and musical scoring all on his own.
He's also updated his website with all sorts
of new information about the new animation and information on how to
purchase the accompanying DVD for LOR Volume 2. The great thing about
getting the DVD if you're into appreciating the full quality of Andy
Murdock's LOR project is that not only do you get the newest installment
of LOR in 5.1 AC3 Surround & Stereo, 9:16 Anamorphic quality, but
you also get 1 hour and 36 minutes worth of animation and particle effects
tutorials. If you're into actually learning how to do this stuff (which
I still don't fully know how to do yet), then it makes for a really
bargain-priced 3D animation tutorial DVD...
Seriously, grab a glass of ice water, and after
watching the full version of the latest installment of LOR, splash yourself
in the face. Then save some water for me, too.
Can you tell that this stuff makes me more than a little giddy?
