Third Year Film: Headless

Work on third year CGI animation film Headless is now nearing completion in the studio. Director and writer Rhys Harvey is hard at work alongside his producer Matteo Veglia and a team of student animators, riggers, modelers and texture artists now working on the final stages of the film.

Headless is tale about a man, whose head and body suffer a conflict of interests and must learn to reconcile their differences. However, there is an added complication in that his head and body are not attached to one another.

Rhys developed the initial idea for the film during his second year on the Animation and Visual effects course, and then pitched the idea to his fellow students, the staff, and an industry panel in September 2014.   It was selected to become one of this years third year productions.

Headless is a CGI animated film, which is being made using Maya, Mudbox, Mari, Nuke and Photoshop software. Rhys and Matteo have had to deal with a myriad of new challenges during the production, including learning to manage a team of their peers and dealing with one or two unexpected rendering issues – such as a sequence in which their protagonist rides a bicycle, which emerged from the rendering process with the character’s seat and the bicycle seat not quite making contact as expected.

We wish them well in the last weeks of production and are looking forward to watching the final film.
