Blue Film WiP modeling start

I’ve started the modeling phase of my film. I’ve decided to start my prop modeling with the things that will be in the art studio, because that’s a model heavy set piece and I want to get the pieces out of the way earlier. More specifically I wanted to model the art supplies since they will be used in most of the scenes. Then next I’ll move on to the other pieces in that set. I also wanted to tackle some of the larger set pieces too.

I’ve blocked out the house and garage set pieces, as well as started modeling some of the accessories for the film. The house and garage are probably about 80% complete. All the major pieces are there. It just needs all the detail work that really adds character and completes the look and feel of the objects.

I think when people start out making a film or a 3D scene on their own they forget about all the little pieces you need to add to sets to add a sense of realism. It truly is the little things that can make or break what you’re doing. Things should feel lived in, used, and sometimes even trashy. Not having these little details like crumpled paper and such on the floor of the studio make them look unused and like set pieces. This can have the effect of removing the audience from the story you’re trying to tell because they don’t believe in the world they’re viewing. So, always remember to focus on the little things, because every detail is important.
