I´m going to study at the Baden-Württemberg Film Academy … believe it or not!
And believe me, I myself haven’t realized it completely by now although the news is kinda old, the letter arrived on the may 29th. (Btw: the same day Germany won the Eurovision Song Contest.)
This time I concentrated directly on the environment assignment and completed a (more or less) straight forward 2.5D matte painting in the 72h time-frame. Since I had to work from home again I had to travel from Dessau to Ludwigsburg 4 times all together … driving 2000km in total which took rougly 18-20 hours (pure fun).
After receiving the assignments and kicking around some ideas on the way back to home I started immediately with scribbles and sketches. With the mental image of a graveyard scene (I wanted to do something like that for some time) the whole project went through the concept, layout and matte painting stage directly into compositing.
Thanks again to everyone who supported me! Special thanks are going out to my mother who acted out a perfect gravedigger in front of my high-end greenscreen-stage 😉
Long story short: I made it! Now take a look at the final piece…
