Final Project 3: Make a Place

So, now we're going to build on what's been going on so far. You now have a solid overview of the 3D modeling process:
  1. Modeling
  2. UV Mapping
  3. Materials/Textures
  4. Lighting
  5. Rendering
As importantly, you have developed an overview of creating an effective image:
  1. Establish a camera to create your shot.
  2. Think foreground, mid-ground, background
  3. Contrast in scale.
  4. Use light and shadow to break up your scene and create points of interest.
  5. Tell a story. How is the viewer meant to "move" through the space.
  6. Use compositing/post-production to "cheat" and create the best image you can.
  7. Interior/exterior and visual hierarchy. How can you move our eye through the scene?
Our final is Monday, December 7 at 8:00!!

What's due?
You will present a .pdf of your project. It should include
  1. Reference material you used to develop your place.
  2. A one paragraph written narrative of your scene. What is it? Where is it? Why is it? What's the story?
  3. In-progress shots and narrative of your process - can include screen caps, test renders, etc.
  4. Final shots of your place - at least 5. These should be final quality renders, that is, they should be finished off in photoshop (color-corrected, composited) and include shadows and ambient occlusion passes.
