Thursday Trailer! (oh wait... it's wednesday..)

Posted by Derek Shiu on Wednesday, June 30, 2010,
Ya ya, I know.. it's not Thursday. But I thought i would post this up anyway :p
Surprisingly this looks pretty good for a Nickelodeon project, lots of nice stuff going on here. Not sure what to expect out of the story though.

Don't want to spoil the end of the trailer, but there's a definite "creepy little girl" in this movie. *shudder*

On other topics, things have started to pick up again with school starting the new term; made only a little better when my mentor said term 5 was the most intens...

Thursday Trailer! (... on friday xD )

Posted by Derek Shiu on Friday, June 25, 2010,
Hah, so.... I couldn't find a good trailer to put up yesterday... that's the reason for the friday posting.
But I found one this morning! The visuals look pretty amazing... especially the hair/feathers rendering.  I'm a little curious how well they'll animate emotions and expressions though; and how well it will read on screen. 

Knock knock

Who's there?


Owls who?

.... get it? hahah

Hey hey!

I'm happy to report a "W" in the column for Crumpalicious softball! hahaha, we finally got our first win today; it was loads of fun :D I haven't played softball before, so I'm still pretty terrible, but I got lucky playing 3rd base tonight... for some reason no balls were hit to me haha.  

I still need to see Toy Story 3, I've heard only good things about it, and that it's even better than 1 and 2.. 1 AND 2! wow, sounds like a must see.  I would have gone to see it opening weekend but ...

Thursday Trailer!

Ok ok, I know Toy Story 3 is coming out tomorrow, and the obvious choice for today's trailer would be that.. however, since I've seen the trailer.... many many many times already on TV I thought I would post something else.

This has been in production for who knows how long... I remember seeing trailers with basically nothing save a little yellow guy with a "moo machine" haha, and that was a while ago.  But I'm really excited for Despicable Me to come out next month!  I don't even know what th...

Wake up!

Well class 4 is just about finished, hopefully I'll get a nice review from Ray on my final project.  I'll post it up when it's finished; which should be sometime in a month or so (the current shot has dialogue, but we didn't do any facial stuff yet, so it's like he's telepathic right now) nothing much else going on, just relaxing and enjoying the break :)

 Haha, I've had this video bookmarked on youtube for quite a while now, it pretty much sums up some of those hard to get-up mornings.  I rea...

Thursday Trailer!

I'd like to update my site regularly, and I figured having a weekly video of some kind will help me do that. so here it is!

the facial model and animation in this looks outstanding. Not to mention the character design fits the Disney 2D style! I might also have a new favorite character... I don't even know his name, but that chameleon is awesome.

Let's see here...

So, I have no idea who will venture this far into my newly created site to read, what is bound to be, a horrible intro.  I'm actually cheering to those who do.. because A) you're some member of my family or B) you're a friend and I sent you a link directly to force you into looking at this :D

Anyway, I'm going to give this little page a shot, and see how it goes..

*new* site is up and running, I just put up some of my latest work; the demo-reel and illustrations.  I like to draw in my spare tim...
