Procedural Animation Workshop

Date:
2010/12/17

Last week I held a class called “Procedural Animation” at the University of Applied Sciences Hagenberg (Masters Degree Digital Arts). After having to listen to some theory, the students had to create a procedural artwork using MEL or Python in Autodesk Maya. The task was to visualize spam-emails. The results are really cool I think. They were all created by generating 3D geometry based on various parameters, gathered from parsed text files (spam emails), and by adding some randomness here and there. Good job!

My personal 15 minutes of fame: Today, 2010/12/06 – 21:00 on BRalpha. Selected works (PP-P4\~#, Lineament) and a short interview about what I’m doing at work in Berlin.

PP-P4#~\ @ Animated Dreams Tallinn

Date:
2010/12/03

PP-P4#~\ is being shown at the Animated Dreams Festival in Tallinn. Skinlines, a 3D short created by Monkeymen Int is also shown in the same category, “Digital Worlds”. Monkeymen is a collective producing independent 3D clips and shorts, formed by the guys here at m-box, the place I’m working at. Actually, I’m currently doing some animation for another Monkeymen clip.
