The Onion House

Four different environments that I did for Corey Householder's 3D/Stop Motion film, "The Onion House." One of the environments is 3D while the others are Stop Motion sets.
 

3D Environment: Responsible for All aspects. 

Stop Motion Environment: Responsible for sets, but not props

Not responsible for concept

Programs: Unreal 4, Maya, Substance Painter, Dragonframe

Hounds

These guys were a fairly minor part of the film, but they were a ton of work! They were actual, physical puppets which I constructed from chipboard via laser cutting. Then, I rigged them together with nuts and bolts, animated them on a stop motion multi-plane and green screen. Then, we were left with the final animated sprites which I used in the Unreal scene for the opening shot and Corey used in after effects for the Stop Motion portion of the film.

Breakdown

Art Direction

Corey is nothing if not prepared. He always makes sure that he does all necessary preliminary work for a project, and he often does it with fully rendered quality as well. I went straight off of his concept art and animatic for everything that I worked on. Corey can be pretty particular about his designs, so I did my best to make the final product look as close to the concept as possible.

Behind the Scenes

It would be an understatement to say that we managed to have some fun during the delirious chaos.

These have obnoxious audio.... on purpose.
