I worked at Courtroom Animation as the Art Director for the last 2 plus years. We would create scientifically-accurate 3D animations to be used as demonstrative exhibits or evidence during mediation and trial. My responsibilities ranged from modeling and texturing, to animation and effects.
I will utilize reference material such as pictures, laser scans, police reports, witness statements, experts, video footage, etc. in creating a scene so that I have the most accurate account of the events as possible. Working by myself, or managing other artist, I contributed to whole scenes from the ground up. Incorporating lighting techniques using VRay with scenes varying from dusk till dawn. After the scene has been put together, I will work in post production work as well finalizing scenes using After Effects. If we needed to do something for a scene, and I didn't know how, I would jump online and find tutorials to show me how. Jumping from program to program, and different types of task and responsibilities every day was a norm, and I enjoyed the hustle and bustle. I like to stay busy, and can understand clearly the pipeline necessary for creating shots from start to finish for our clients.
