The Bee and the lost Axis

Share Collapse

This is the short i made with 9 other friend during a master in C4D.
C4Dzone is part of the Authorised Training Center Maxon for training in Italy. They release both the Nemetschek and the Maxon certificates.
The course I attended is based on a special program that lasts two months and it is addressed only to professionals who want to use Cinema4D in a top-level. The course is made up ten participants who work in team and realize together an animation short film, (yeah this one) both in character animation and in traditional animation. The aim of the course is to analyze every tool of the software, by teaching the secrets of the 3D application.
my contribute to this movie touches every field from the storyboard to audio sinc and publishing, but especially to modeling the Bee and many other objects in the enviroment and the animation of the bee itsfelf and many other details.

hope you like it, enjoy :)

The lack of focus on the motion elements of the animation really held back the high quality and masterfully-done visuals. I also felt that more attention to the audio was needed.

In other words, the whole video lacks balance. If one is going to put a ton of work in visuals, they need to put an equivalent amount of work into the motions and sounds. Balance is tricky, but is absolutely necessary for maximizing the cohesiveness of content.

hi :)

i agree. the render of the single shot are very good but too much use of deep o field and motion blur ruined it in the end...an error that i don't want repeat! :P
