    Default Making of Chase Me

    Dear fellow user of zbrush,




    I'm happy to present you my last work, Chase Me.
    Chase Me is an hybrid film between CGI and stop-motion. It's a 3D printed Movie.
    Everything was made in CG first, then for each frames, i 3D printed a model. Than mean to complete the 3 min of my short, i needed to print 2500 prints.


    I want to show you some behind the here because i deeply used zbrush from sets to characters.


    I won't detail all the sets and characters but i want to go through few of them.
    The first one is a "giant" tree : I made the basic geometry in maya and after everything was in place, I begin sculpting with zbrush. I like using the clay brush to build up the forms and after that dig in with specific alphas.
    I have not spent to much effort on adding lot of details because i knew the 3D printer will somehow smooth that out but I took care to accentuate them.
    Actually, i was surprise how far the printer (Form1+) was able to perfectly recreate the shape.


    Because my short is 3D printed the work didn't end up here. I had to cut my sets in many parts to fit in the 3D printer then glue them together. I have 12 sets and i did that all the time.

    My sets wasn't the only things that went through zbrush. I also did some work for my characters. I did a quick sculpt for my main character, a young girl, to add details on the dress and hair.


    The more challenging part was the animation of the second character, the shadow. On every shot, the shadow stretches, deforms and transforms.
    For that I made differents blendshapes in zbrush to be able to transform the shadow like when it become like an eagle.


    The CGI took me 4 months to be completed and 2 years for the entire short.


    The movie won't be online soon but you can see a little trailer and a making of here :

    I have to admire your dedication to your work. I did a degree in animation some time ago and know full well how time consuming it can be.! excellent use of 3d printing as well.
    excellent job.!
