I ran out of time for this assignment, but in the later I'm going to fill the glass with water, drop it, and let it shatter. Should be pretty sweet.

Sheriff Title WIP






This is a work in progress, but it is coming along. Eventually there will be a bird that flies into the scene, lands on the letters, when some dude tries to shoot the bird. Obviously he misses (or does he?), hitting the letters. You'll have to stay tuned to find out whether or not the bird gets it in the end.

I sim-ed out the bullet holes with dust and debris in Houdini using my custom tool. I brought the sim-ed files into Maya and rendered with Prman, (the dust was rendered as a separate layer using Mantra). I composited it in After Effects and added some additional cracks and breaks. Feedback is always appreciated.

Teleport test



This is a quick test done in After Effects. The background plate is busy and not properly lit, but you get the idea. This can probably be done better in Houdini, new version coming soon.
