DreamLight exercises all aspects of 3D CGI short filmmaking through our own in-house DreamLight branded productions. These creative productions allow us to build expertise across the wide range of skills necessary for complete 3D short films including the following: concept creation, story development, character design, set design, 3D modeling, texturing, surfacing, lighting, character animation, facial animation, lip sync animation, general 3D animation, camera animation, special effects, network rendering, compositing, editing, audio production, project management, online distribution, promotion and more. We are then able to bring all these same skills and tools to bear on our client projects whether they are for the Web, TV or film.

NEW Book: Creating a 3D Animated CGI Short

Click for more information about Michael Scaramozzino's new book: Creating a 3D Animated CGI Short; The Making of The Autiton Archives™ Fault Effect™ — Pilot Webisode. Michael Scaramozzino, an early computer graphics pioneer and DreamLight’s founder, has recently published a 500+ page book on the subject of short film production. Creating a 3D Animated CGI Short provides an in-depth look at everything that goes into the making of a 3D animated CGI short film. The book examines a number of early DreamLight creative projects, including our first award-winning CGI short film – BlastOff!™, that led to the creation of The Autiton Archives 3D animated Web series. The book contains a companion CD-ROM which includes many color photos and animations.
The book then follows the entire production of the series pilot webisode – Fault Effect from early concept designs through 3D character design and animation to final compositing and online Web publishing.

DreamLight’s first 3D animated short film - BlastOff!™ won a Silver W3 Award, an Official Honoree Webby Award, a Merit Award from the 2D OR NOT 2D Animation Festival, a Best Animation Nomination from the Danville International Children’s Film Festival, screened as an Official Jury Selection in 15 international film festivals and the original, BlastOff! Bed™ was also featured on HGTV’s Look What I Did! TV show.

 

We created BlastOff! as a test project where we could exercise and refine the skills necessary to produce all aspects of a 3D animated short film, from concept to completion. A primary goal of this exercise was to establish a 3D animation pipeline and render farm at DreamLight that we could use to produce a wide range of client 3D animation projects for the web, CD-ROM, DVD, digital video, TV and film. In fact, we “wrote the book” on setting up a render farm, we wrote the chapter in the LightWave 3D 9 manual about Mastering LightWave LWSN ScreamerNet on Mac OS X.
