Eric Schockmel is the co-foudner of Watergun.tv, an audiovisual company that specializes in film, animation, music videos and advertising (like many others), and while he didn’t originally studied animation in the first place (went for design at Central St Martins), he’s managed to impress us all with his western short he presented last week at the “remastered” exhibition @ One Marylebone.
Certainly he’s not new to animation, and the piece doesn’t have an overwhelming narrative, but still… a bit of Maxon Cinema 4D, some Adobe After Effects, some Audition and Premiere Pro… and here’s a new short! Proof that making 3D animation is accessible to everyone. The film is a contemporary reinterpretation of JMW Turner’s painting “Rain, Steam and Speed – The Great Western Railway”.
More of his works and interesting projects… on his vimeo page.
