Character Design & The Movies

29 10 2008

Taking all that I learned during my research into the uncanny valley and putting it to use in term of character development. The biggest choice when choosing a character is human or creature.. Looking at the success of all the CG films released over the last ten years you would be mistaken to thinking that creating a human character is the way to go, I don’t want to go to much into that right now as I will be covering that entire subject matter later on but for now, lets look at successful CG creatures.

Like most of research before I turned to the guys at Focal Press for an insight into all things computer generated. The book begins with a brief historical timeline and overview of creatures in the movies from the ice-monsters and lunar sprites of George Melies, to the earliest fantasies of mind-blowing CG creation.
