LENOVO PLAY

During the Fall of 2019, I had the amazing opportunity to work alongside mentors from Lenovo to conceptualize a product for children that would spark a greater interest in STEAM education. Through this SCADpro class, I had the honor to collaborate with User Experience Designers, Industrial Designers, Interactive Game Designers, Graphic Artists, and Animators for 10 weeks to research, design, and produce a prototype of the product we created.

LENOVO PLAY - VISION VIDEO

2019

Tools : 

Maya | Cinema 4D

About the Project:

 

This video was created as an advertisement to showcase the product our team created. The digital media team and I were responsible for producing this video. 

My Contributions:​​

I am responsible for lighting, rendering, and compositing the AR images featured in the Process Book. For the vision video, I helped light and render the project in Cinema 4D. I am also the voice over for the video. 

The tray and blocks were modeled by the Industrial Design Team.

Challenges:

Because the animators and motion media designers preferred Cinema 4D over any other software package, I used this opportunity to learn how to light, texture, and render in Cinema 4D. I was also in charge of communicating across teams to ensure a smooth pipeline process between Maya and Cinema 4D.

Final Thoughts:

Although those 10 weeks were challenging, learning to work with a group of diverse artists really taught me to collaborate with others and contribute my talents towards a cause that's bigger than just a "school project". I loved spending time getting to know more about other disciplines within my school and how important it is to work together. We also were taught to be very professional and to present to supervisors of the biggest companies in the world.
