At Nice Shoes, we were experimenting with stereoscopic 3D. Creative Director Brian Boman decided to use poetry to create visuals for this experiment. I was tasked to create the Spider and Flower featured in the short. I created the assets from concept, modeling, rigging, animation, lighting, and rendering. It was a great learning process to explore the full CG pipeline for this project.
After I was finished the Spider scenes, I created the matte paintings for the live action portions of the film. Being a stereoscopic film, we had to project the backgrounds onto 3D geometry to make it work.
