UPDATE - 23 Jun 2012 - At the PHILAFILM awards ceremony, “The House of Seville” won the “Leigh Whipper Gold Award, Animation Category”.
“The House of Seville” is our 18 min animated movie made with Carrara and aimed at film festivals. We have our first selection at PHILAFILM - The Philadelphia International Film Festival. “..Seville” screens 1:25pm, Sat, 23 Jun 2012 as part of a festival event in the African American Museum, 701 Arch St, Philadelphia PA 19107. Film festival rules mean we can only show you some excerpts for now. PHILAFILM have requested a trailer so I have edited this:
Also on Youtube are samples of our use of Carnegie Mellon University MOCAP:
Story - a loose retelling of “Carmen” where the ghost of Carmen invades present-day suburbia.
Tech Note - mostly assembled and animated by a group of 4 of us. We kept work diaries so we know that we clocked about 1000 person-hours during 3 and a half years to make about 1000 sec of movie.
We are lecturers, students, ex-students and friends of the Manukau Institute of Technology in New Zealand where we do 3D multimedia learning, teaching and experimentation with Carrara. Hello from academia!
