Anybody With 3D Animation Experience?

OK, this is a REALLY far pitch, but I'm a dreamer. I want to try to get a Grendizer movie on the big screen. The issue has several strings to be taken care of. I'm working on it. Believe it or not, I managed to get somewhat of a deal. It involves steps. So, first step: Can anyone on this forum create a 2 minute trailer? Moreover, could this anyone go extra length and work pro on the project, should it see the day of light?

i personally don't know him but "nareg kalenderian" is a self thought 3D artist and he has two animations of his work on his website, it is really amazing from a person who learned all of that by himself!

Re: Anybody With 3D Animation Experience?

yes! i heard that he submitted his animations to blizzard entertainment back then and blizzard gave him a 5/5 score, he was supposed to be hired by them but due to being lebanese he was declined, or something like that, i can't quite remember, in his bio he says his goal is to work at blizzard entertainment, awesome!

he Declined blizzard ... not the other way around ;)
I Dont think anyone can something decent for free. You will either need a one man team like Nareg, or hire a decent studio. the people that can give you decent quality aren't exactly readily available in this country. If you want the funding, you will need decent work. good luck.

Is the reel shown on his site truly done solely by him? If so, then I'm speechless.

Would've love to learn 1% of what it takes to do this.

@Xterm, the 1% is easy. Use a computer. There, free consultancy! Hehehe... Just messing, man!

At one point I tried using the box modeling concept to model cars in 3DSMax, I got frustrated by failure, perhaps due to the lack of motivation and the resources available to me back then.

Perhaps when I have time i'll get into it again.

I'd love some guidance if anyone has experience.

Re: Anybody With 3D Animation Experience?

Well, 3D isn't easy. But still, I'm guessing this Nareg was hugely passionate about it, that he got to that level of skill on his own. Maybe you just like to learn 3D, but not as much he did.

You are a developer. You will fail.
Technically i can create a character. Model it  skin it. Rig it. Animate it. But it will look like shit.

The difference is that guy is an artist with technical skills.
For example while you would spend a week or so perfecting a parallax occlusion shader, that guy will use any available one online and hack it through with just the right angles to give you an even better illusion.

What i am saying is that you are either born an artist or you arent. And you cannot just learn it.

Re: Anybody With 3D Animation Experience?

@Jsaade, I agree that being born with artistic taste make a difference, but I don't think that's the whole matter. I had a friend who sucked at design, even though he took massive courses, read books, got tutorials... But after some months of hard work, he got ahead of the game. No, he designs like he's blessed with the gift.

Re: Anybody With 3D Animation Experience?

@Nabs I am not talking about design, that can taught. Design is very very far from art.
The best designers have trouble putting colors that do not bother the eye.

@Padre hey, man.

I met Nareg a few years ago and I want to contact him now about work but his phone number is always closed and I got no replies from his email address.

Any idea how I can contact him?

Thx,
