Below is a 3D animation that I planned, modeled, animated, and rendered in just under three weeks. This is my capstone project for AD334: Introduction to Modelling. The short film was featured during the Northern Michigan University Winter 2007 Art & Design Student Showcase for animation and modelling. I created the basic ambient track using Absynth 3.

There are a few rough spots, particularly toward the end where a green laser's shadow can be seen before the laser activates. I bit off more than I could chew considering the time available. I had a hard time visualizing the environment and setting mood. But I pulled it off and burned the animation to disc thirty seconds before class started.
