Life Drawing

A few marker quickies :)

Panoramic Photography

A first attempt at panoramic photography. I merged the photographs manually warping them one by one with the thought that I would be able to spot mistakes easier for future reference. Plus it's fun and challenging!

5th Cypriot Film Directors' Festival

The magic of coffee on paper! And watercolours
This is a map I have created as prop for the intro short to the 5th Cypriot Film Directors' Festival (5ο Φεστιβάλ Κυπρίων Σκηνοθετών), an event organised by the Directors Guild Cyprus (Ένωση Σκηνοθετών Κύπρου). The short was served as the opening to the festival containing the thoughts of the Cypriot film-makers about "What does Cypriot cinema mean to them".

The idea was to use iconic characters in the world of cinema which many are familiar with in contrast with the films of the cypriot directors. The team wanted to convey the message that even though the cypriot films are not known, they hold a value of their own.

Personal roles: Assistant director, compositing, motion graphics

Also the TV Spot! (in Greek - no subs)

To help with the campaign and promotion of the Festival I was also assigned to do a TV Spot, using the components that the graphic designer chose for the poster so that the images (both moving and stills) correspond to each other.

Cumuli - Painting Clouds

 Here I contributed by creating the clouds around the city, which was modeled and textured by Boyan Baynov in 3dsMax. I used Photoshop to combine photographs of clouds that I have taken myself throughout the year whilst on the plane, traveling, as well as digitally painting some elements. Below is the first attempt towards creating clouds.

 They resembled mist which is why I started from scratch and made something which I was more pleased with.

A video showing the layers I ended having.
