For my final year I was inspired by the futuristic urban sprawl of Ready Player One and looking at reference images of Brazil’s favelas.
I’m not a 3D natural, but I’m proud of myself for pushing myself to pursue this idea alone, not letting myself be paranoid that I don’t hold the skills to be able to create something on this scale. I researched into materials and utilities commonly found in these areas, it is a different way of living. I have learnt a lot throughout this project, technically and mentally.
My enthusiasm for CG and 3D modelling led me to research and compose my dissertation on the creation of the 3D characters in the recent film Christopher Robin and how children’s books can be translated into VFX.
