I was engaged as a one-man asset dynamo for Mad Max: Fury Road working round-the-clock modelling, rigging and texturing low-poly characters and vehicles, rapid production of real-time 3D assets (character and vehicle models, textures and rigs), and layout / previs animator for the Rock Riders Canyon sequence.
My Role: Story Unit / Previs Artist at Dr D Studios
May 2008 – February 2011
I worked as part of the team with the Director's Unit to analyze and workshop the script & storyboards, then use Maya to "rapid prototype" cinematic sequences (eg: sculpting & scouting locations, creating & blocking characters with gestural animation and motion capture, establishing camera coverage & cutting patterns for each scene in context), rapid-iteration, high quality representative visuals to progress the director's vision, with a 24 to 48-hour turnaround! We animated 3D cameras within genre-specific cinematographic conventions, and represented digital actors' performance using a combination of keyframe and motion-edit.
