The Rider

I was responsible for designing and taking this character to production quality for a short cinematic called "The Dark is Rising". It's based on a story written by Susan Cooper and was created by a group of five students at the Gnomon School of VFX. It was done for the Visual Structure class with the amazing Andrea Adams. It was a really fun challenge. We learned a lot and had to work together very closely to pull this off within our ten week deadline. Shared responsibilites include lighting and scene assembly. This character was my main responsibility for the project.

Here's the link to the cinematic:
