Who is Michael?
Michael Wu is a digital visual artist in 3D filed who touches his audiences with original creativity and daring styles. When it comes to 3D animation, the most exciting benefit for Michael is "recycle". Compared to 2D animation, a complete 3D model can be processed for all purposes as he wishes.
"All I know is there is no specific tool that can fulfill my desire for creation." said Wu. He enjoys conducting multiple 3D tools at the same time. "I love to try anything fresh and achieve while finding their attributes. Being adventurous is the reason to become a master."
Why did Michael fall in love with 3D animation? "3D
animation would be the best tool for me to run after my dream."
These 3D tools help him realize the imagination he can never
touch in the real world.
Behind the Scene – The Aliens in the Incubator
iClone... surely would be my necessity in this
case. Real-time preview would be the most beneficial feature
in 3D animation. As we know, to make a live 3D object is already
arduous, not to mention a 3D anime short. However, iClone
did it. With the release of 3DXchange, iClone's best partner
ever, iClone now can import most kinds of .3ds/.obj and thus
largely expand the creativity.
Inspiration for the Aliens
A world devastated by pollution and nuclear
wars produces a sterile generation of higher mammals, and
clones are developed to continue the human race. With an increase
in germ line mutation rates in humans living close to the
nuclear power, there is a mystery about the stimulus for this
tradition of strenuous defense of science in the post holocaust
world. Most people were more prone to congratulate the physicists
for their creation of the atomic bomb than to criticize them.
The aliens in the cultured bottles reflect the manipulation
from the human society and the pounce of the aliens for freedom.
In addition, I also took the moth as the base for reference
to make the aliens like these ones.
Suggestions and Comments
I think iClone is a winner since it is positioned as a smart application. Besides the facial morphing core technique, iClone provides an easy and friendly way to make your own short. So far I think there are still big room for the refinement of the AP, such as the 3D window controller, smooth camera editing function, all-purpose lighting system, and more powerful and compatible motion editor.
After the release of 3DXchange, iClone becomes more popular with 3D animation market. This is the successful step for sure, but what would be the next surprise? I am looking forward to seeing it. First of all, I am expectant that iClone can become a draft script of film production. Take Hollywood movies as example, every shot will be a respectable investment, but iClone can lower the cost since the clear display of the concepts. Moreover, iClone is potential to be adopted by agencies to make TV commercials and music videos. I think iClone is cool with that and will become more attractive with the enhancement in "the technology of concept".
