A Village too large - Milos Baskic - Neon Challenge Final Submission
NOTE1: Shortly before the end of the submission deadline, the Unity Recorder was updated and that caused the MP4 video format to not work (At least on my machine.). I am afraid that I can not provide a High res video for this reason. I hope you enjoy what is available.
NOTE2: All of the assets will be free (neon signs are manual). The scene will be optimized (my machine is not strong).
Quick about me: Studying Computer animation 1st semester at the FH Salzburg, got in to 3D trough Unity in 2010. If I can make such a scene as a side project while working and studying, ANYONE CAN!
Inspiration: The Unity asset store is a great tool, and I always found it extremely useful, but never really had the drive and motivation do do something with it. With this competition I finally had an 'Excuse' to actually use the free tools at my disposal.
Basic idea: The settlements of the world have been growing and growing ever larger. And now they are all one. No longer distinguishable one from another. Planned construction is a thing of the past, and war is without a purpose, since no greater goal can be achieved. All that's left, are petty crimes and every day life. This scene shows the unloading area of a flying transport vehicle (Above the warehouse*)
The process is retrospective but the days are chronological, so when reading the day, imagine it going from the morning towards the evening.
A few Pictures:
These silhouettes were added after the recorder went haywire so they are not visible in the short animation clip.
The picture bellow shows what They would have looked like. I do not think they stick out when properly placed in the shadows, even though in good lighting they are obviously not finished. The characters even come with a few animations. Sadly I can not show those for mentioned reasons. (Pack: Crafting Mecanim Animation Pack FREE)
