| ||A Final Moment|| |
"Working late, a writer sits at his desk, articles and stories that could shift the tides of war. In an instant his quite night is shattered, a bomb destroys the corner of his study. Deafened by the shock, dazed from the force, he falls onto the floor, dust clouding his eyes, he looks up to the moon now beaming through the hole that was just moments ago un scared walls. Siloutes of bombers now approach shadowing from the moon, this is his last moment."
I have always enjoyed the history that surrounds world war 2. I decided that an anti propagandis of the german's war, was very fitting for the project. The poster on the wall is a recruitment poster posted throughout the german territory. I believe the writer could have been in the middle of producing an article for a local paper, meant to discourage people from joining the war. But without warning, his writing is disrupted by the same people he writes about. Bringing the war home.

|Problems and Solutions|
1. Problem: New program, I've been modeling for a while in other programs so this was really just a challenge in learning a new program.
Solution: Lots of time pulling hair our, trying to make lightwave do what I knew I could do in other programs
2. Problem: lighting, I hadn't fully decided on what kind of lighting I wanted in the scene until fairly late in the layout process.
Solution: I eventually decided on a night time scene with the heavy moonlight coming through the hole in the wall, with the silouetes of the planes it created a very nice effect in my opinion. Also unfourtunately my flame light in my lamp, is over powering the flame inside.
3. Problem: Finding a typewriter! It was very hard to find a free typewriter over the internet,because of the complexity of the model I didn't want to attempt it with such a small time frame for errors, and with the kinds of complexities in it lots of fine tuning would have been needed.
Solution: I eventually found one on the3dstudio.com, I'd highly suggest it if anyone needs models that are just out of their skill or time limits.
4. Problem: Having a bugy computer, some days it will work fine, other days it'll take 12 minutes to start up, I ran into a fair ammount of crashing on my home computer while working, graphics card issues and the like.
Solution: I saved a ton.
