Day & Night
This Pixar Oscar nominated short film, directed by Teddy Newton, appeared before Toy Story 3 in cinemas.
All set modeling and motion graphics across the entire short. The various landscapes & terrains needed to be modeled very precisely in order to integrate with the 2D characters in the desired way.
in this clip, I composited the cowboy animation into a background plate and animated various passing rocks, finally adding smoke and shadow layers to integrate the various elements.
When we arrive in Vegas, I created & animated all of the motion graphics that appear on the signs and buildings. I also modeled all set elements, barring the vegetation, and dressed the set.
