The OceanMaker with Lucas Martell

Posted 8 April 2013 10:52 pm by Fianna on pointSnap

Software: Autodesk 3ds Max , Autodesk Softimage ,

Industry: Film, TV and VFX ,

In my daily AREA activities, I get to come into contact with lots of talented artists, high-end technical users and hear about some pretty interesting projects. One such project is The OceanMaker, headed by Lucas Martell. To sum it up, The OceanMaker is an animated short film that is looking for some online love (and funding).

I tried to get a hold of him, but he was finally kicking it back on a trip across Thailand and China. Pedro is back in Brazil now, and we undoubtedly talked about the Viking, past projects, collaboration with Dario Picciau and life-changing work with a 5-man studio out of Sweden called Meindbender.

Software: Autodesk 3ds Max ,

Industry: Games , Film, TV and VFX ,

So as it turns out, living in the countryside is not without benefits -- for example, I got to meet Paul Neale in his home! Paul lives in Uxbridge, which coincidentally, is a shorter trip than going to the Toronto office (the former Alias HQ). Anyway, we had a good chat and here is the edited version ;-)

I had the pleasure of talking to Jesse Sandifer, most known for his winning entry to the CGHUB Warriors contest challenge. We talked about sculpting, 3D printing, humble past gigs (medical videos on feline urinary tracts) and his thoughts on Mudbox.
