Race 2420 is the Post-Production piece prepared by our team. We developed a 4 minutes animation short based on the animatics and storyboard provided by faculty.
The story talks about five fish-like creatures racing in a steam punk environment.
There are lots of production challenges:
- Customized and complex materials
- Flexible deformation for the character and shell
- Humanized animation on nonhuman characters
- Customized effects
During the semester, we successfully troubleshoot the challenges and designed the unique animation pipeline which is proven to be efficient. The experience further familiarized us with animation developed process and prepare us well for the industry.
We will deliver the final piece to the animation festival. Here is our animation trailer:
