Reversion – animated short film created in Blender 3D. My role as Technical Director included set design, modelling, lighting, rendering and compositing. More information about the film can be found at http://reversionmovie.blogspot.com.au/
“The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy notes that Disaster Area, a plutonium rock band from the Gagrakacka Mind Zones, are generally held to be not only the loudest rock band in the Galaxy, but in fact the loudest noise of any kind at all.”
The completed set for the final scene in Reversion. Originally the set featured daytime lighting, under rain clouds.
Though the colour scheme was later altered to a more violet hue to match Reversion’s colour script, the Security Room set originally featured monochrome-blue lighting.
The security room hallway was an interesting set to create, as it consisted of a sleek, futuristic bridge through a harsh industrial maintenance room.
This set was the last one to be conceptualized in Reversion’s production. The room was intended to be evocative of a cave, with a cavernous ceiling stretching up into the darkness, and heavy concrete asymmetrical construction. The office windows on the upper left would look out onto the adjacent greenhouse, meanwhile surveying the rows of elevators as people entered.
More brightly lit than the final set, and lacking the central double-helix sculpture, this image of the Lobby reveals some of the details not visible in the final cut.
A view of the office set, before I got around to wrecking it for the final production.
The final scene to be rendered in Reversion, this set required an overhaul from its original version, which was just an elevator floating in a featureless black void. I convinced the director that we needed a more detailed set, and went about designing a shaft that integrated offices into the walls.
