Music: Your Firefly, by Ben Cocks.
Alphega, Part 1 is a short animated film I produced while in Sheridan College’s Post-Grad Computer Animation Program. It’s the first couple of minutes of what I hope will eventually be a 14 minute film. I won’t go into too much commentary on what’s happening in this first part of the film because that might reveal more than I want to and possibly spoil it for the viewer when I finally present the entire film. I will say that the full story line has quite a deep curve to it and the character goes through some extremes during the ensuing adventures – this first part is really just introducing the character. It’s sort of a teaser for the film I still hope to create.
The programs used to produce this: Maya, Mudbox, After Effects, Photoshop and Premiere Pro.
Freelance illustration and fine art have been the main focus of much of my career but that’s now changing, having recently completed a computer animation program at Sheridan College, I’m now exploring the possibilities of this new field of creativity. I also have experience with animatics and creating storyboards for the film and TV industries. I’m currently based in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.
