THE RESPONSIBLE HERO - is a tragicomedic story about rescue attempt and its consequences based and inspired mostly by cheesy yet charming Superman movies from 70-80s. It is a simple straightforward story with a cheerful and a little bit nostalgic atmosphere contrasted by a grimm and sudden twist.
The whole project was in production for about a year from october 2019 till december 2020. My personal goal was to make a visually cinematic experience and I tried to put maximum effort into animation, camera work and editing. Being the only person responsible for visual part I always tried to find best solutions timewise, so it was crucial to plan ahead during the preproduction stage and smartly cut corners where possible. During the process of trials and errors I managed to establish a workflow which helped me efficiently manage daily routine and make some progress every day even though it was pretty hard at times as it is a passion project done at free from work time.
In conclusion I should note that this is the first project where I started to use Blender as my main 3d package in production which was a blessing and a challenge in itself at the same time. All in all, now it became my main software which I am happy with. Everything was rendered in E-cycles with 7-9 minutes of average time per frame on RTX2060. Other softwares used on this project include Substance Painter, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Photoshop.
