I decided to create a short introduction animation to the presentation I filmed and edited. This is the first project in 3d where I have used more than just basic primitive shapes!
Thank you to Neil Randerwala for assistance in setting up and Matt Watson for filming with the second camera (close-up, moving camera).
This is the longest piece I have edited, clocking in at 1 hour 10mins and 40seconds.
The 10 second animation at the start took exactly 76 hours, 18mins and 30seconds to render.

The leaves that I added blown by wind at the very start were probably more of a pain to do than they were worth. The leaves kept on passing through the wall of my classroom and zooming past my shot inside. There was no reason for some of them to go through as others were stopped by it. I ended up having to layer many more walls outside of our view so that they wouldn’t pass through.
This is the overall scene I built from a distance.
I photographed most of the textures whilst walking around the block.
The classroom is roughly modelled to the real classroom we filmed in.
The screenshot above and below shows how I have tried to roughly match the end of the intro animation with the start frame of the film edit.
