Nice video. It’s always fun to see my stuff getting put to good use. My wife got a kick out of it too. Kudos to you, that’s a pretty intense schedule, that you rendered and edited it in 48 hours probably meant very little sleep. The actual story works well and we follow the protagonist’s adventure easily. The transitions into and out of the daydream could have used some kind of dissolves, like when the mom shows up for example but all in all, nicely done.
Many thanks (and Jaderall and Ivy, too). “The Neighbor’s Yard” is one of those 3D scenes that inspires stories, in my case based on the adventures I had around the neighborhood as a kid. BTW, I heard the comment “cool boat” about the ChrisCraft, and weirdly enough, I saw one just like it in a seafood restaurant during the screenings of the contest videos. For those unfamiliar, it looks like this:
I now also have “The Neighbor’s Pools”, which in turn brings to mind an adventure I had with a serious thunderstorm in Okla. City. (in “Tornado Alley” )
I do recall the following words:
“Please note: These are exterior-only house props and the central area of the fenced in yards is the focus of the environment. Future sets may expand on this environment towards the road.”
I vote yes. As I’ve mentioned, I am having no luck finding 3d bungalows, the closest I’ve come is “The Neighbor’s Yard”, but it would be nice to have the front views (the bungalow billboards are nice, I should mention). To me, they look like this:
I.e. small, 4-5 rooms, covered porch with pillars on pilings, etc. There must be millions of these throughout the country, although they are being torn down and replaced with “MacMansions” in desirable locations.
The dissolves for the daydream are an example of what the schedule does to the mind. I have used exactly that in previous videos, but in this case, I got the basic sequence of scenes done Saturday night to check the time (4-7 minutes required), then went to bed planning to add the transitions, sound, and music the next morning. I added the sound and music and just forgot about the transitions. I did remember them, Sunday night on the way home from the dropoff.
