This is the development blog for Machine, a miniature/CG short film.  The blog will follow pre-production, production, and also some of the technical and production projects running alongside the film.  At the moment, these include:

LEGO Motion control (for stop-motion application): A LEGO Mindstorms based, and sponsored project building a stable, 3 axis, automated computer controlled motion control rig for stop motion.

Miniature Environment Building: Research into miniatures as a cost-effective, viable alternative to CG environments.

LEGO Virtual Camera Rig: A LEGO Mindstorms based project building a remote physical camera for controlling a 3D virtual camera.

Brush based animation: A plugin project for Autodesk Maya, leveraging a tablet interface for quick character and animation posing.
