This is my second animation in Carrara having moved up from the Daz 3d software in early 2011.
To the plot.
Our hero (Steve Malore) finds himself in a run down (neglected) part of london. It is in fact based on a real street in Dagenham (Wantz Road). I took some artistic liberties to make it work with the plot, but I wanted a fairly realisitic flyover scene (episode 7), so location scouting (using googlestreet view) was essential here.
In fact it took 1 month (off an on) to find the location! originally I was going to sart in Rainham, but my roots involve Dagenham so this seemed more approriate (write from what you know).
The animation uses (preset) mocap extensively (which i've played aroudn with to make it unique), and my own hand editing.
I hope you enjoy. www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1Yuso…
