Today we finished applying sound to each of the scenes. I agree Alex. Without sound our short film of our animated environment would have been very dull indeed. The sound adds a new dimension to our environment and helps suggest unseen animation and adds atmosphere. Some sounds suggest things happening around our environment, which consequently makes our environment more interesting.
Nice work on the sound guys its all coming together. Its interesting how much weight the sound gives the objects within each scene. Just need to tweak the odd sound effect here and there. It may be worth grading the entire film in after effects, just a thought. Apart from that, the project seems to be coming along well, time for the final push. Although we have had problems rendering in addition to texturing issues I think that the groups commitment and shared vision towards the project has made a huge impact on the final product. Although we did not use the render farm using mental ray I am sure that the final result will be more than adequate in fulfilling the brief.
Got some great feedback from Jared today. He seemed to be very happy with the way things were going. He was impressed by the way in which we had used the camera to our advantage and used timing to great effect which will allow the viewer to explore the environment. His only criticism regarding the project was the fact that the sound effect for the white noise may be too high in conjunction with the interior tank shot. It may be worth changing the sound effect in Final cut or adjusting the sound levels. Good feedback here guys well done. Keep up the awesome work.

We have almost finished our project guys. Good job. We managed to complete our rendering and compositing today and we have already completed more than half of the sound that we need for our short film. Tomorrow we shall continue to tweak and add to the sound effects. I still believe that the mine facility door sequence needs to be played around with in terms of sound and we also need to add more background ambience sounds. See you guys tomorrow.
all i can say guys is that i am impressed with the professionalism of our team, admittedly we had some issues a few weeks ago but we always put the project first and it is this aspect which i think is the key to our group.
anyway the shots and sounds are epic guys congrats to the effort put in by all, it shows big time. tomoro we need to get everything sorted as a necessary so it can be put on disks ready for easy submission on friday.
cheers guys :D
