Resilience Satelle | r.i.c.e

Hey @ArtAvenue !
Thank you very much for your encouragement! Thanks! :slightly_smiling_face: :hugs:
No worries, we won’t stop and we won’t quit either, we just need to slow down a bit, to snail velocity, but as soon we gain traction again we’ll have this going faster than a Lancia Delta HF Integrale on a gravel road! :laughing:

Hey guys!

Today I started painting the textures for the character.
I managed to finish the scarf and I’m still choosing the colors to use for the rest of the accessories.
I’m counting on finishing it completely this week.

Hope you like it!
Best regards,
Rute Perdiz

Hey guys!

Today I was detailing the character’s shirt.
As they are light colors I had some difficulty finding the ideal shade to match. But there I got it :slight_smile:
Tomorrow I will continue.

Hope you like it!

Hey there friends!
Here is @Rute_Perdiz report of yesterday, due to the 3 consecutive posts limit she couldn’t made the update:

Hey guys!

Today I managed to finish the shoes and started the hat, which is also almost finished.
I’ll just detail the accessories a little more and finally I’ll paint the character’s fur.
I hope to finish the painting this week.

Hope you like it!
Best regards,
Rute Perdiz

She by now has completed the character by the way, but due to busy days she will make the update later :slight_smile:

Hello friends!
Introducing one more character concept for Resilience Satelle:


His name is Luso and will also be the star of the special short animation, that we are making dedicated to him: " Clash On Little Pond ", which we are also sharing all the progress here on the forum.

Clash on Little Pond will be our attempt to Demo Resilience Satelle graphics and animation quality.
Luso will be the 5th playable character for Resilience Satelle, being the most athletic one.

Until next time!
Best regards

Hello friends!
I hope you had a great time! I sure did!

━━━━━━━━━▼━━━━━━━━━
These last 2.5 months I had the great pleasure to have worked, for the first time, on the post-production of an actual Hollywood movie. All thanks to submarine.nl, a production company in Amsterdam that develops and produces feature films, documentaries, animation, and transmedia.

From my point of view, I’ve been giving a hand in their Layout department, tackling awesome challenges, and making new friends!

I was mostly responsible for setting up several technicalities such as:

  • Determine the position of the virtual camera;
  • Consider a shot’s framing, composition, camera angle, camera path, and movement;
  • The rough lighting and global appearance of each shot;

All this was intended to preview the final look of a shot and ensure that all the future departments had a good work basis, to bring the final vision to life while maintaining visual and emotional consistency through all the scenes.

I had a blast and made a bunch of new friends! :slight_smile:
━━━━━━━━━▲━━━━━━━━━

Unfortunately for Resilience Satelle that meant I virtually had no time to work on it!
I now had and got back to it immediately! :cowboy_hat_face:
As you can see, I’ve followed the above silhouette of Luso’s concept and detailed it substantially more through the art of sketching! :sweat_smile:

Next comes the painting procedures and hopefully it will be ready for modeling!
Until next time!
Best regards

Hello friends! I apologize for the radio silence!
We have been active mostly on the “Clash of Little Pound” branch of Resilience Satelle…
:thinking: Thinking this over, I now really thing that the Clash thread should be merged with this one as they are the same project.
I have to check with the moderators if that is possible.

For the moment I bring you NEWS regarding the movie I talked a couple of posts above. :smiley:
As some of you may know, last Summer I worked on an Hollywood movie called:
Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood.

I have the pleasure to announce that it will be premiered on March, on a cinema festival:

and soon after on NetFlix.

I don’t have NetFlix, so I’ll probably only see it later on, but if you do I’m sure you’ll have a good time seeing this one! … If you do see it please take some photos and share them here or by PM.

Also the only image that they have released…


…is one of the shots that I or my good friend Carlo Pietramale made the layout for :smiley: (yes, using Blender :wink: ) We both worked on the moon shots and some are very similar, so I can’t tell for sure if this one is mine or his, but anyway is awesome to see it finalized!

If you end up seeing the movie I dare you to spot my shots :laughing:
… I worked on a bit more than 100 shots, so you have decent chances.
If you spot my name on the credits (should be on “Layout” or “Layout artists”) I would love to see that too :slight_smile:

Next week I’ll have more news about the Quest we had for years to acquire recent hardware. Spoiler alert, we did it and was thanks to the compensation for the work made on the Apollo 10 1/2 movie! :slight_smile:

Until then!
Best regards

… And here are the things that were possible to buy thanks to the Apollo 10 1/2 movie (which will premiere on NetFlix on the 1st of April 2022 btw (not a lie),
Mine is the orange one, Rute’s has the Purple(ish) one.

They are Twins, exactly the same specifications:

  • Ryzen 7 5800X
  • 64 Gb Ram
  • Nvidia RTX 3060 with 12Gb of ram
  • 34" Dell Alienware monitors with 98% DCI-P3 color support.

Putting us in a much better condition than before!
Now it’s only a matter or time! By time I mean free time.
… which ain’t a small problem to solve by all means :neutral_face:

I’m good at working but terrible at producing :sweat_smile:
… but I do am learning :slightly_smiling_face: and although slowly, some progress get’s made also in that end.

Anyway, just wanted to show/update you guys about what is from this side of the network cable.
Until some day!

Hello Friends!
So the Portuguese film fund for this year is happening again!

The submission deadline is 21st of April.

@Rute_Perdiz is preparing the submission for this year. I made such a lousy presentation over the last 10 years, that was pointless continuing to hit the same bush and instead I figured that it should be interesting to try a fresh approach and point of view.

So far the following tasks are complete:

  • Script has been re-written from zero. Altough the story keeps the same, many aspects were improved. Orthographic mistakes were corrected. Brand new action and lines were invented and everything was re-imagined considering the budget they can provide, in case of selection.
  • A 1 minute storyboard was created (also by Rute)
  • Project graphic presentation, featuring a lot of the images shared on the thread.

More news soon!
Best regards
Rogério

Thanks Meshmonkey! :slight_smile:

Hello Friends!
I have the pleasure to announce that the application for the Portuguese film funds was submitted successfully with all the required bells and whistles!

Coming next:

  • In the next 15 days, technicians will study all the papers and will eliminate the candidates that made some mistakes, failed to meet some requirements, or simply forgot to send something.
  • Then, the lucky folks that didn’t make any mistakes will have to endure a period from 15 to 30 days, wile the jury evaluates the projects.

So… see you again in 15 days! :slight_smile:
Best regards

Did I say 15 days! :slight_smile:
…seems that will be more than that, so far not a word yet!

And you guessed it!
Not a word yet about the Portuguese Cinema Fund… one person must be very healthy to apply to these funds… it’s at one month labeled as “Análise de Candidaturas” which translated gives “Candidacy Analysis”, which, in this case, refers to the certification that all papers were submitted correctly.

Hey friends!
Hope you guys had great times!

I have news about the Film Fund mentioned above!
The provisional list of projects that made it through the first round has arrived today in my e-mail.
So this is a provisional list, it can therefore change… :slightly_smiling_face: but not for Resilience Satelle, because it totally nailed it!!!

All papers were submitted exactly perfectly and therefore it shall pass to the second round where a group of experts will closely read everything, study if it has the potential to be funded, and give it an evaluation!

This time I don’t dare to estimate a deadline, so let’s just wait and see what comes next :slight_smile:
Until next time!
